Statement of President of the Republic of Indonesia After Inspecting the Quake-Hit Area At Majangtengah Village, Dampit District, Malang Regency, East Java Province, 29 April 2021
Assalamualaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.
This afternoon I am at Majangtengah Village, Malang Regency, East Java Province, to inspect the area hit by earthquake a few days ago. I have received a report on the damage. In Malang Regency there are 1,716 houses affected by the earthquake, some of them are heavily damaged and the others are moderately damaged or slightly damaged.
The Government will provide the assistance. The heavily damaged house will receive Rp 50,000,000, the moderately damaged house will receive Rp 25,000,000, and the slightly damaged house will receive Rp 10,000,000. We hope that the reconstruction can be carried out immediately. For public facilities, such as the one behind me, musalla, the reconstruction will be carried out by Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing.
We hope that the situation will return to normalcy and we hope that in Malang Regency the reconstruction will begin immediately in May.
That concludes my statement on this occasion.
I thank you. (RI/MMB)
