Red Cross Interview on Radio Nebula (Credit Mr. Husni @ IFRC)
First Response Indonesia (FRI) interviewed a representative from the Indonesian Red Cross (PMI) to give listeners information about how the Red Cross can help relocating lost family member - a vital concern for people after a disaster like this. The team also interviewed doctors working in the affected areas, and are assessing what listeners information needs are, as well as passing on info about immediate physical needs to the government.
The situation in Palu remains critical, with 2000 confirmed dead, up to 5000 missing, and thousands of homes and businesses destroyed. The radio station has already proven a key channel for informing government about immediate physical needs of listeners. FRI is asking what the listeners' information and communication needs are. This is essential to make sure that station is effective in fulfilling its Community Engagement role.
