Japan aids grassroot projects

JAKARTA (JP): Japan will extend its financial aid of Rp 1.4 billion (US$191,716) to help six grassroot projects in Indonesia.

The Japanese Embassy said here last week the aid will be channeled to Indonesian nongovernmental organizations and a governmental institute.

The assistance scheme will aim at the implementation of various projects, such as improving the health of children, assisting physically handicapped people, providing equipment for farmers and helping drug addicts.

Among those organizations receiving funds are the Indonesian Federation for the Welfare of the Deaf, Yayasan Mitra Mulia, PSPP Khusnul Khotimah and the Pasar Rebo Hospital. (03)
