Depok City, Indonesia – October 26, 2018
Yayasan Pintar Pemersatu Bangsa (YP2B Foundation), a non-profit organization that works to educate, improve, and develop the quality of life of the poor people in Indonesia, focusing our activities on education, health, humanity and community empowerment, today announced it has received a grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable arm of Motorola Solutions, Inc.
Through the grant, Yayasan Pintar Pemersatu Bangsa will conduct Flood Mitigation Training for Flood Rescue Team Members in Kelurahan Bidaracina East Jakarta. Kelurahan Bidaracina is inhabited by approximately 54,000 people. The neighborhood unit RW 05, 06, 07, 14 were selected as the area for the implementation of the project. Located along the Ciliwung River, this area is particularly vulnerable to inundations and was affected by severe, recurrent flooding every year. The average height of flood waters ranged from 150cm to 350cm, during the inundations which usually occur once or twice a year, many residents have to be evacuated to safe places. During evacuation, The Indonesian Red Cross and non-governmental organizations help the community to establish a public kitchen, shelters and offer free medical treatment. Many residents sometimes refuse to leave their homes, and get trapped. In such cases, a local rescue team helps them evacuate using ropes and special rubber-inflated inner tubes, with limited evacuating equipments. That is why the rescue team members need to be trained and prepared well to face with situation of the floods.
The Motorola Solutions Foundation awards grants each year to organizations, such as YP2B Foundation, which support and advance public safety programs and technology and engineering education initiatives.
This year, Motorola Solutions Foundation grants will support programs that help more than 3 Million students, teachers, first responders and community members around the globe. There is a specific focus on providing grants to programs that impact under represented populations, including females, minorities, people with disabilities, veterans and others.
“The Motorola Solutions Foundation is honored to and privileged to support the work of Yayasan Pintar Pemersatu Bangsa,” said Matt Blakely, executive director of the Motorola Solutions Foundation.“We believe in organizations that are fostering innovation, building partnerships and driving change, and we’re proud to be part of the positive impact they’re making in communities.”
