An Honest Message from Yogyakarta
Yogykarta, Indonesia- Yogyakarta, the area of vast cultural and historic important to Indonesia, was struck by a powerful earthquake. More than 6000 people were killed and 300.000 left homeless in the country which was just hit by tsunami 2 years ago claiming 130.000 lives.
Most of formosa bali products are from this region. Many craftmen and artisans working with formosa bali left homeless as their houses are completely destroyed. Some have to stay in the hospital for several days and some have to accept the bitter reality that some parts of thier bodies had been amputated.
Partini told us a story
"I rushed out of my home when i felt the tremors. I had no idea what was going on. I just ran but suddenly i fell down due to a big wall crashing on me. I couldn't move my body no matter how hard i tried. My hip to legs was limp. I just called the name of God and covered my head.
Now, I have to accept the bitter reality that i have to spend the rest of my life on a wheel chair. The crash had broken my hip and left me immobile.
I AM NOT ALONE. There are thousands of people in the hospital have to face uncertain and difficult future. Ten thousands lived in makeshift tents with no fans and little lighting. They are extremely in need of food and other essential supplies."
