Jayapura, Jubi – Chairman of Humanitarian Care Community for Remote Areas Papua (Kopkedat) Yan Akobiarek states despite education, public health services in Papua’s remote areas are still an issue.

Although the provincial health office has provided services to remote areas through several health programs such as Satgas Kaki Telanjang, Save Korowai and Nusantara Sehat, these programs have not well implemented.

“I think sending teams to remote areas is a good idea, but I get the impression that some team members only come for vacation, to work less and get more rest,” said Akobiarek told Jubi by phone on Tuesday (10/7/2018). For instance, he pointed out the team of Satgas Kaki Telanjang who are supposed to provide health service to villagers in Korowai. After the Ied al-Ftir break, their members are still not returning to their duty station.

Meanwhile, Maria Duwitau, the Vice Chairman of the Commission V on education and health of the Papuan House of Representative said doing health services in Papua, in particularly remote areas, is always connecting with a commitment. “No matter how greater of the offer, but without willingness and commitment, I think it’s useless,” Duwitau told Jubi not long ago.

Sentani, Jubi – Awan Sol, a 19 years old student of Papuan Baptist Theology in Jayapura works part-time selling newspapers in front of the former Merpati Office at Abepura, Jayapura City to meet his daily needs.

Sol whom is native of Yahukimo District said he works early in the morning before the class and sell approximately 30 to 50 copies of newspapers every day. “Headlines are a factor whether newspapers will immediately be sold out or not. If I can sell 10, I got Rp 100 thousand. The more copies I sell, the more money I get. After the class, I continue to sell the rest of copies,” he told Jubi on Wednesday (4/7/2018).

Meanwhile, Robi Wenda, a student of Cenderawasih University has to postpone from his study due to financial issue. He is now selling the local newspapers at the Sentani Airport to support his needs. “I sell ‘Jubi’ and ‘Cepos’ every day,” he said to the reporter at the Sentani Airport, Jayapura District. (*)

Jayapura, Jubi – Naomi Zaelan, the coordinator of Children Learning Center of Solpap (Papuan Traders Solidarity) and Komunitas Jantung Kota said the 4th floor of Pasar Mama-Mama Papua Building must return to the Solpap management.

It ‘s not only because Solpap assists the traditional women traders, but it also fosters their children during their mothers’ activities in the market.

“I’ve been handling the street children for ten years, and they studied at the old market. Now the learning process is taking place on the 3rd floor of the new market, but unfortunately, it is the place where their mothers must sell their commodities. So we ask the government to open the 4th floor both for the Solpap office and children learning centre,” Zaelan told Jubi on Tuesday (07/03/2010).

Further, she explained that currently, the learning centre has children of age groups of 3-16 years. “We have ten classes and twenty voluntary teachers who recruited from the church and other institutions,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of Solpap Frengky Warer said until now the 4th-floor sealed by BUMN (State-Owned Enterprise) and Judith Diponegoro from Pokja (Working Group) Papua. “Why the BUMN and Pokja Papua did it is entirely unclear. This building is obviously for Pasar Mama-Mama Papua and handed over to the Jayapura Municipal Government, not to the BUMN,” he said. (*)
