Brave to be a Head of Family
25 Jan 2019
#CareForSundaStrait - Iwansyah (42 yo), husband of Megawati (33 yo) died a week after the tsunami hit Sunda Strait. He died as a result of his leg being severely injured until he caught the tetanus virus and could not be helped anymore.
“When my children and I were watching television, my husband was in the backyard. A big wave suddenly came and made my children and I bounced out of the house. Our house was destroyed. I cannot find my husband until the neighbor told me my husband was taken to the hospital. His leg was broken and he died because of the virus,” said Megawati told the story on January 22, 2019.
For now, Megawati and her children, Revita (8 yo) and Ruhaina (2 yo) are staying in their relative’s house in South Lampung. It is hard to Megawati to face her life. She does not have any incomes, and Megawati relied on her husband as the head of the family who made a living. That is why She does not have a plan yet to build her house back.
“I have to be brave to be a head of the family to replace my husband figure. I hope I can get the job immediately, so that my children and I can have a better life,” she added.
Until today, Wahana Visi Indonesia has been distributing several kits such as family kits and children kits for about 1.000 affected households. The distribution process is still running in Pandeglang and South Lampung areas.
