Distribution of Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance in Central Sulawesi – Caritas Indonesia – KARINA

Distribution of Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance in Central Sulawesi


Since the early days of the devastating earthquake and tsunamihappened in Central Sulawesi, until now, the Caritas PSE of Diocese Manado and Karina (Caritas Indonesia) were directly involved in the coordinative works to provide emergency relief to vulnerable people in affected locations.

Together with Caritas Internationalis’ member organizations, governments institutions, and civil society organizations, Karina continue in providing humanitarian assistance programs. One of the programs that already, in process and will be running is Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance (MPCA).

Through the issued of official letter Number 367/076/BPBD-G.ST/2019, the Governor of Central Sulawesi Province decided to extend the Emergency Transition Status to the Second phase, started from February 24 to April 24, 2019. More than 2,000 people are confirmed dead in this 7.4 Magnitude earthquake followed by tsunami and liquefaction that struck on September 28, 2018.

The implementation of MPCA program itself is carried out in 3 phases and all beneficiaries are those who already verified based on accurate field data. First phase distribution conducted from March 8 to 19 toward head of family (KK) in villages of Batusuya Goo (238), Sindosa (64), Toaya (66), Kaliburu (81), Jonooge (223), Sidera/Bulupontu Jaya (39), Limboro (110) and Bolapapu (354). While in Lendetovea, Boladangko, Tangkulowi and Palu City, the distribution will be held on March 20 to 25

Right to now, the number of recipients KK of distribution for March 20, 22 and 25 was still being verified. The second phase distribution will be held just after March 25 to the first or second week of April and the third phase will be held around last week of April to the beginning of May.

It is also good to know that this distribution process was systematically supported by PT Pos Indonesia. The Caritas PSE of Diocese Manado, Karina and all of us should sincerely support in prayer and actions so that the MCPA program run could run smoothly for the survivors.
