“We are very concerned about the floods that hit several areas in Batang Regency, especially Klidang Lor Village, where our staff and members are affected. Apart from assisting in the form of rice, we also assist several parties to be able to support the provision of medical treatment and so on,” said Nengah.
Floods in Batang Regency are already on their tenth day, and rainfall is still falling at several points. Until Sunday afternoon, the flood level in Klidang Lor Village reached knee height for adults and up to adults’ chest.
