What a week in the flooded Jakarta! Even Pope Benedict XVI is alerted and has offered his prayers to the victims of floods in Jakarta, Indonesia. The Pope said “no one should go without the necessary aid.”

As we heard, every 5 years, there is a huge flood in Jakarta. Last year, we were lucky. This year the flood has affected a total of 74 urban wards in 31 sub-districts in Jakarta’s five municipalities. More than 97,000 houses as well as some of Jakarta’s main roadways were flooded.

Let’s see the Indonesia ordinary people affected by the Jakarta Flood in our Jakarta Snapshoots.

  1. oh no…sad to see this. They had been through too much. God blesses Indonesia, please!

    • The flood in Jakarta is getting better now. No water in our area. North Jakarta is worst hit. Poor guys over there. There are lots of beautiful mansions there too. But it is near the beach, so suffered really bad.

      Hope it’s getting better from now…
