ChildFund volunteers help after volcano eruption
Most of the more than 5,000 families displaced by Mt. Kelud have returned to their homes, and the government has provided them with cleaning and roofing materials. However, manpower and knowhow have been in short supply.
Enter 45 ChildFund volunteers from Boyolali, in Central Java, 30 adults and 15 youth, who helped families clean their houses and fix their roofs, finishing six or seven houses each day. Three midwives travelled with the group to provide basic health care as needed for both families and the volunteers.
