Translater : Jesica P 

THE CONSTRUCTION Project of temporary shelters targeted at 12 thousand units for 14,400 families displaced by the victims of 28 September 2018 natural disaster and then threatened with completion in December. The reason is, a number of temporary shelter materials are starting to be difficult to sell in Palu City. Thus a number of local contractors complained to Kaili Post (11/13/2018).

‘’It is difficult on ingredients. Both mild steel, kalsibor and roof. Half dead, '' said a local contractor, Fahrul Islami, aka Payung. To Kaili Post Reporters, he had retreated to take part in the tender for the shelter development activities initiated by the 'Kompas Humanitarian Fund'. ’'Fear of not being finished and got fined every day 100 thousand rupiahs,' he admitted.

He also doubted the target of 12 thousand shelter units to be completed in December 2018. In addition to materials, said Payung, it was also a matter of lacking local labors. ‘’ Many from regions of South Sulawesi or other regions but if calculated, it is less profit, 'he admitted. However, he tried to finish on time for the temporary shelter. ’'Yes, it must be endeavored for compassion for refugees,' he promised.

Meanwhile, quoted from Antara Sulteng News, that shelter built by the Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) for the victims of natural disaster still lacks of 13 hectares of land for the construction of 400 units.

In addition to land shortages, said Head of the PUPR Ministry Task Force for the disaster emergency response in Central Sulawesi, Arie Setiadi who was contacted in Palu on Tuesday, another problem faced was that the land provided was not fully sterile for the Ministry of Public Works' shelter.

According to him, his party has received land allocation for the construction of shelters in 48 points such as 21 points for Palu, 18 points for Sigi and 9 points for Donggala.  "But when we will enter the land preparation, it turns out that several locations have been entered into by the community and donor institutions to build residential areas," said the former Director General of Highways at the Ministry of PUPR.

The shortage of shelters' development land, said Arie, was discussed at a special meeting chaired by Central Sulawesi Governor, Longki Djanggola in the governor's office on Friday (9/11), attended by the Mayor of Palu, Sigi Regent, Donggala Regent and a number of leaders of relevant agencies.

"In the meeting, land has been mapped which will be allocated for the construction of PUPR shelters. It is now in the process and expected to be allocated in the near future so that the target for the construction of shelters can be completed as scheduled on 25 December 2018. Until Saturday (10/11), said Arie, 506 units of shelters had been completed with construction of the target of 1,200 units.

Central Sulawesi Governor Longki Djanggola when chairing the shelter development acceleration meeting in his official residence on Friday (9/11) requested that the PUPR Ministry Task Force to establish intensive communication with the mayor and local regent for the construction sites of shelters so that all obstacles in the field could be resolved.

Data from the Central Sulawesi provincial disaster data and information center (Pusdatin) noted that shelter needs for the victims of the Palu, Sigi and Donggala disasters were Palu City with 7,500 rooms, Sigi with 7,944 rooms and Donggala District with 4,742 rooms.

Meanwhile the expert staff of the PUPR Minister for Communication, Rudy Novrianto explained that the construction of 1,200 temporary shelters also involved the local entrepreneurs through the Central Sulawesi Association of Construction Implementers (Gapensi) to empower the entrepreneurs and local workers.

Of the 1,200 units that will be built until 25 December 2018, only 850 units will be handled directly by the Ministry of Public Works and the rest will be submitted to Gapensi Central Sulawesi.  The shelters are worth around Rp500 million/unit. Each shelter consists of 12 rooms measuring 18 square meters, built with lightweight steel frames, walls and ceiling made from GRC, zinc roofs, plank floors. This building will be equipped with sanitation, public kitchens, parking lots, clean water facilities, 450 watt electricity, and kindergarden and elementary schools.**
