The internees received 300 grams of rice per person per day, plus soybeans and sometimes a bit of meat. There was one well and one toilet per block. There was also a primitive latrine over a creek. Spiritual care was provided by the pastors Klooster, Wessels and Van Megen. At the beginning of July groups of men and boys were taken to the Minggiran men’s camp near Kediri and to Petjinan, near Toeloengagoeng.
