“After receiving that report, we immediately went to the location to evacuate the man with an ambulance. When we spoke with him, Fadli admitted to us that he hadn’t eaten since the day before.” Sanjaya said. Fadli told the officials that he planned to go to Jember, East Java by foot from Padangbai Port, because he was just laid-off from his work as a security guard in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara.

“He explained to us that he was just laid-off from his work place in Lombok, so he tried to get to his relatives house in Java by foot to find help and that he had no cash left with him to get himself any transportation. Fadli has been walking from Lombok since the 27th of April 2021.” Sanjaya added. Officials from BPBD decided to coordinate with the police and provide him transportation through Gilimanuk Port to Jember, East Java despite the current travel ban that is still implemented in order to help this man.
