Gotong Royong, Maternity Home in the Most Outlying Village of Banyuwangi Finally Operates |  merdeka.com

Merdeka.com – Sarongan Village, Pesanggaran District, which is the southernmost village Banyuwangi now has a special health facility for pregnant and childbirth women, namely the ‘Maternity Home’, Puskesmas Pembantu Sarongan.

Sarongan village is located about 80 kilometers more from the city of Banyuwangi. It takes more than three hours to get to this village. The majority of this village area is forest and plantation.

Previously, health facilities for pregnant women, especially those at high risk, were incomplete in this village. Pregnant women with high risk (risti pregnant women) should be referred to the Genteng General Hospital which is located about 50 km from Sarongan Village.

Departing from that condition, this Maternity Home was built in Sarongan Village, which could include Kandangan Village and the surrounding villages. This maternity home has facilities for a postpartum room, delivery room, baby room, MCH room, examination room, incubator, ultrasound, and other facilities.

This Maternity Home was built as a result of the mutual cooperation of many parties. Starting from the Consulate General (Consulate General) of Japan in SurabayaCenter for Study and Human Resource Development (PSPSDM) Mataram, Banyuwangi Regency Government, Sarongan Village, and villagers.

Present at the inauguration were the Japanese Consulate General in Surabaya Takeyama Kenichi, Banyuwangi Regent Ipuk Fiestiandani, Director of PSPSDM Mataram Nur Ahmad Yani, and Sarongan Village officials.

The Ipuk Regent is grateful that the Maternity Home is finally operating. “After more than a year, the building we hoped for was finally operational,” said Ipuk.

Ipuk said that many people in Sarongan Village live in the middle of forest and plantation areas. “This is our commitment to provide health facilities and infrastructure for the people of Sarongan and its surroundings. We are grateful to have met the right people and helped us build this health facility,” said Ipuk.

“Thanks to PSPSDM Mataram and residents of Sarongan Village who worked hard to build this Maternity Home. Of course also the Japanese Consul General in Surabaya, hopefully this can strengthen relations between Japan and Indonesia,” added Ipuk.

Takeyama Kenichi said he was happy to be able to help Banyuwangi residents. He claimed to like Banyuwangi and had visited the easternmost district of Java Island three times. “Hopefully with this Maternity Home, more and more residents will get proper medical facilities,” said Takeyama.

This Maternity Home is an unused building. In the development process, Yani continued, the people of Sarongan Village worked hand in hand to dismantle the building.

“The construction of this Maternity Home is a form of mutual cooperation from many parties. We are grateful for the many supports that this Maternity Home is finally able to stand and operate,” said Nur Ahmad Yani.

“The Banyuwangi Regency Government is repairing and building irrigation canals. In addition, the Regency Government is also building IPAL facilities,” said Yani.

Yani explained that this year there were 156 pregnant women from Sarongan and Kandangan villages, as well as more than 3000 fertile women who would benefit from this maternity home.
