The PUPR Ministry is currently verifying which families will be needing their houses to be rebuilt using their RISHA method, or Simple Healthy Instant Houses.
The RISHA technology is a house with a modular design, namely the concept of dividing the system into small parts (modules) with an efficient size so that they can be assembled into a large number of different products.
The design of the house building with this modular system can be changed or developed according to the wishes or needs of the occupants, and construction with this technology is very fast.

"We have Risha, so if there are earthquake-resistant houses like this, we will use them. I have asked the Director General of Housing, he has the stock, he has already made the modules of the house, so now it's up to the Regional Government to transport it, because the Regional Government has to prepare the land. Later we will do land clearing and we will build it," said Basuki.
The ministry also sent 10 water tanks with a capacity of 4000 liters, 2 water treatment plants, 40 portable toilets and 40 public hydrants for the victims of the Cianjur earthquake.
This assistance arrived in Cianjur City on Thursday, November 24, 2022, and was immediately distributed to evacuation sites in need.
