ACTNews, GARUT -- Flash floods ravage Karangtengah and Sukawening Districts in Garut Regency. Rizky Nugraha from ACT Garut Regency program team said that currently, survivors are in dire need of clean water assistance.

“Even though floods have started to subside but the construction debris is still scattered in the location. After the flash floods, survivors face difficulty accessing clean water. Currently, they can only use the available dirty water around the location,” said Rizky, Monday (11/19/2021).

Rizky continued, survivors also require clothes, sleeping mats, blankets, and meal packages.

Despite no casualties, the disaster has affected hundreds of families so they have to stay at their relatives’ houses or the available public facility such as the sports center.

Rizky then encourages the Generous Benefactors to send their donations to our brothers and sisters who face difficulty in Garut. “Let’s prepare our best help for others. We should aim for Allah’s blessing with our donated help,” said Rizky.[]
