Survivors’ Hope to Plan Life from their Worn out Tents

Yuyun, 39, was not capable of imagining her future. Like many other survivors of the Cianjur earthquake, she still lives in an emergency tent. They are not yet prepared to leave or to strive for survival on their own.

A number of residents pass by emergency tents in Sedong Kulon Village, Bojongherang Village, Cianjur District, Cianjur Regency, West Java, Saturday (21/1/2023). Dozens of residents in this area are still sleeping in tents because their buildings are badly damaged and uninhabitable..

Yuyun’s life was shattered two months ago. A 5.6 magnitude earthquake demolished her house in Sedong Kulon village, Bojongherang subdistrict, Cianjur district, Cianjur, West Java, on 21 November 2022.

Since then, along with her husband and three children, she has lived in a blue tarpaulin tent measuring 4 by 7 meters, which is far from being convenient.
