Children who were victims of the earthquake in Palu, were touched by KPC employees at the refugee camp in Petobo, South Palu. Smiles and joyful expressions emanated from their faces, especially when KPC and PMI held trauma healing or psychology social support programs (PSP).

"The condition of my school was damaged, collapsed, not suitable to be occupied. I need books, clothes, school supplies so I can study again, "said Anjani.
"My mother has no money for school needs. I studied in refugee camp with my friends. My teachers teach me, but also teach other schools, "said Anjani.
