Volunteers (again)


Heard the departure of some residents to the village Jumoyo become volunteers on Sunday, January 23, 2011, some residents regretted not being able to participate. Then on Tuesday, January 25, 2011, we set out again towards Cangkringan subdistrict.

We met some residents and asked to help clean up the Kepuharjo village hall. Kepuharjo village hall is located at the top of the remains of Merapi eruption in 2010.

Seeing the condition of the region which is a secondary danger area, we are less convinced how the benefits will be felt by cleaning the village hall. We just think that this is the will of local residents. Our assumption, which is desired is that benefit for the local population – either short term or long term … as simple as that!

==========================

Relawan (Lagi)

Mendengar keberangkatan sebagian warga ke desa Jumoyo untuk menjadi relawan pada hari Minggu 23 Januari 2011, beberapa warga menyesal tidak dapat berpartisipasi. Maka pada hari Selasa 25 Januari 2011, kami berangkat lagi menuju wilayah kecamatan Cangkringan.

Kami bertemu beberapa warga dan diminta membantu membersihkan balai desa Kepuharjo. Balai desa Kepuharjo berada di bagian teratas sisa-sisa erupsi Merapi 2010.

Melihat kondisi wilayah yang merupakan daerah bahaya sekunder, kami kurang meyakini seberapa manfaat yang akan dirasakan dengan membersihkan balai desa. Kami hanya berpikir bahwa itulah yang dikehendaki warga setempat. Anggapan kami, yang dikehendaki adalah yang memberikan manfaat bagi penduduk setempat – entah jangka pendek ataupun jangka panjang…sesederhana itu!
