This assistance is certainly very useful for Bedouin residents. Because they have been maintaining the balance of nature, they live from nature without damaging the ecosystem. It is undoubtedly a shared responsibility to preserve nature and help others.

The daytime fires occurred during the quiet village of men who were going to the fields to grow crops. Only the women left who guarded the house and cooked.

During the fire, the women shouted for help, until it was heard that men whose fields were not far from the location of the fire. As a result, there are only about five men who put out fires with makeshift tools, such as watering water to hit the fire with banana leaves or coconut leaves.
