About Philouz

I was born in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. At this time, my family and I live in Bogor, West Java. I once worked for the homeless, street children, sex workers, refugees and victims of natural disasters. I have ever worked and stayed for certain period in West Timor, Buru, Aceh, and Yogyakarta. Currently, I work with a focus on disaster management in Indonesia. I invite all of you to share experiences and thoughts about various topics. It is a good opportunity to have your comments and critics on articles that I post in this media. Sharing news, experiences and thoughts is valuable in life.
