Housing Assistance for Ni Wayan Pejet, an elderly woman living alone in the Village of Nawa Kerti, Abang, Karangasem

On 3 June 2016, the Melaspas ceremony was performed at a house which had just been completed so that it could be occupied as quickly as possible by the recipient of the housing assistance / the owner of the house, Ni Wayan Pejet, an elderly woman living alone in Banjar Bau Kaler, Desa Nawa Kerti, Kecamatan Abang, Kabupaten Karangasem.



The specifications of the house are as follows:

  • 1 bedroom measuring 2.45 metres x 5 metres
  • Total area of the house: 12.25 square metres
  • Floor: concrete
  • Walls: cement blocks, not plastered
  • Roof: galvanized iron

Total cost of the building: 7 million Rupiah

The Head of the Village of Bau Kaler, I Wayan Punduh, asked the family and residents of the village to work together to transport the building materials from the main road to the building site; a distance of 150 – 200 metres. He requested help from local builders and also asked the local building supply store to assist by giving a “good price” bearing in mind that Ni Wayan Pejet was a very needy resident.

Below is a list of the names of donors for this building project:

  • Eka Nusantoro
  • Eny Rahayu

  • Ali Tanuri (Adi THT)
  • Haugiyanto
  • Susan Lioe
