The flood that came upon Manado, North Sulawesi, and its surrounding left the residents cold and broken. Many houses and public facilities were destroyed. There were also many remainings of the flood in form of mud that made it difficult for community activities to take place. 

The HDI Foundation worked together with HDI and distributors in Manado to help the victims. The good intention and love successfully gathered Rp 15 million, through donation from HDI staff and sponsors.

HDIF handed the donation to Ms. Milka, the person in charge of the post in Manado and distribution on January 24th, 2014. Distribution took place the day after at the three worst flooded areas, which were Tikala, Dendengan, Ranotana Weru, as well as Banjer and its surrounding.

The help was given directly to the victims, without delivery services. The distribution was focused on the people who needed help the most: infants, pregnant women, elderly, sick people, and the victims of the flood at the refuge. They were given food supplies, toileteries, clothes and equipments for babies, clothes for adults, and medicines.

Hopefully the good intention and the help from the sponsors could help lighten the load for the victims.
