Jakarta (ANTARA) –

Minister of Social Affairs Tri Rismaharini built a number of social barns to handle the high number of leprosy cases in Barito Kuala Regency, South Kalimantan.

In a press release received by the Ministry in Jakarta, Wednesday, he said that the construction of this social barn is expected to make it easier for leprosy survivors to get the equipment they need and maintain personal hygiene.

“If you have difficulty getting soap, towels and other equipment, please come to the social barn, we will provide them,” added Rismaharini.

He said that the Ministry of Social Affairs had built more than 600 social barns throughout the country, especially in disaster-prone areas.

The Ministry recently built social barns in three neighborhoods in Barito Kuala Regency with the aim of preventing and dealing with the spread of leprosy.

Although not the highest in South Kalimantan, the number of leprosy sufferers in Barito Kuala Regency has reached 58 people. In this district there are also 281 people with disabilities and 35 cataract sufferers.

He explained that one of the causes of the high number of leprosy cases in the district was the habit of bathing in rivers.

Lack of awareness about sharing towels and toiletries with leprosy sufferers can also cause transmission.

“The Ministry of Social Affairs has provided various kinds of toiletries, sleeping equipment, medicines and various other needs. If you run out, you can ask for it at the social barn. “So it’s best not to mix it with other family members to avoid getting infected,” he said.

He added that the social barn will later be managed by the community who will be coached by the local health center and the village government.
