Mount Semeru Eruption Disaster Response


Grief enveloped the people of East Java at the end of 2021. The highest mountain on the island of Java, Semeru, released a fairly large Abortion Hot Cloud last (4/12). The eruption of mounth semeru released avalanches of hot clouds to cold lava which caused severe damage and manya casualties.

For this reason, as many as 8 doctorSHARE disaster response volunteers were dispatched to Lumajang, East Java, to help friends affected by the disaster. The 8 volunteer teams include 4 general practitioners, 2 nurses and 2 non-medical volunteers.

The doctorSHARE disaster response team carried out medical services for 8 days (10-18 December 2021) at the Candipuro Disaster Post, Pasirian, Lumajang Regency, East Java. In addition to the Candipuro Disaster Post, the team also reached out to residents by providing services and giving donations to houses spread over 9 villages/areas affected by the disaster.

In the 8-day visit/medical service, there were a total 0f 434 patients including minor surgery which were successfully performed, with the most diseases including ARI (Acute Respiratory Infection), Myalgia, Dyspepsia.

During the service, doctorSHARE collaborated with Kesdam V Brawijaya, Kodim 0821 Lumajang, BPBD (Regional Disaster Management Agency), Basarnas (Idonesia National Search and Rescue Agency), Local Government, PT. Japfa Comfeed Indonesia Tbk, Electricklik.com and a number of others strategic partners.

Appreciate to volunteers, donors and all parties involved. The hope is that all affected residents will soon rise again to raise back a brighter tomorrow.
