7:30am. Meet with my Phi-Beta team to
organize the further clean up of our learning center. All the mud has
been removed. We need to rent a high power water booster to wash the
floor and walls of the learning center.
9:10am. Some of our staff was already working at the learning center.
They were happy to get the rented machine so the cleaning up would be
faster. The problem arises with the rain. Sewer systems are clogged with
debris. Our learning center is located in the heart of Banda Aceh and
when it rains, the back side of it is easily flooded.
11:55am. Got back to where I am temporarily staying to work on my
journal and other ‘soft works’.
2:30pm. Getting back to PCC’s Posko (command post). PCC has decided not
to register new IDPs. Instead, we’ll be working with the IDPs we’ve
already registered (PCC’s volunteers have served some 7000 households!).
Also, there are changes in supplies that we provide. One month after the
tsunami, now we provide more school supplies especially school uniforms,
bags, and some stationary.
PCC volunteers are now busy with school uniforms and other
school supplies. Two trucks full of school supplies were sent by
our partner in Medan (KKSP).
7:30pm. Got back home to work more on my delayed journal and updates.
