Monday, July, 29th, 2013. Perkumpulan Pelita Indonesia distributed 50 ceramic filters to 50 family in RT. 43, RW 14, Village Madasari, Sub-District Cimerak, District Pangandaran, West Java. The natural beauty of Madasari beach makes this village a huge prospect of tourism for this region, but it was one of the villages impacted the worst from the tsunami in 2006. Almost the entire community was lost. Their houses were destroyed and many lives were lost, but with the help of the government, Madasari has now fully recovered. All activities have returned to normal, houses have been rebuilt, but clean water is still an issue due to the fact that the ground water containes a lot of chalk.
The dissemination and distribution of ceramic water filters took place at 07.30 PM after iftar. The Head of RT 43, Bapak Udin gave many thanks for this event and said ,” I’ve been using this ceramic filter for a month, and I am satisfied.
