TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian government continues to send aid to the victims of the Cianjur earthquake, especially those in areas that have not yet received assistance. Authorities seek to make sure that the tens of thousands of refugees and people who are still isolated in the disaster zone have access to basic needs and medical supplies.

"The plan for this morning is to send more food assistance to the victims of the Cianjur earthquake in isolated areas, using a helicopter that took off from Pondok Cabe," the National Police's head of PR Insp. Gene. Dedi Prasetyo said on Thursday, November 24.

The police also continue to search for missing persons. According to the National Disaster Management Agency (BNPB), to date there are still 40 people who have been reported missing.

In the search process, the Police have also deployed Brimob and K9 units. According to Dedi, the search and evacuation process will continue to be carried out with cross-sectoral collaboration involving the BNPB, Basarnas, TNI, Polri, and volunteers.

Police personnel are also sent to provide trauma healing to all victims of the Cianjur earthquake.

On Wednesday morning November 23, the TNI and Police rescued a 5-year boy who had been buried under earthquake rubbles for three days in Rawacina, Nagrek Village. The boy was found alive and was immediately taken to the hospital to get medical help and reunited with his parents.
