Where to go when there are floods

The neighbourhood was flooded again. I had to evacuate to the Rumah Susun, where my sister now lives, after she was evicted from her house. Her house was close to mine. I feel insecure with the rumah susun’s renting system. Living three or four stories above the ground, I cannot imagine how that is. Do people know their neighbours? Do they care for each other when you are not family? If I do get evicted, I hope that the government will be compassionate enough to provide us with compensation and assistance. Not just tell us to leave.IMG_5238
