Every disaster usually has difficulties for handling recovery phase. The former institution for handling disaster in Indonesia, the national committee named Badan Penanggulangan Bencana Indonesia (BNPB) still facing serious problem to solve recovery phase and volunteerism is one of the very significant solution. There is several type of volunteer and one of them is spontaneous volunteer. They bring good impact for recovery phase because they are the first one that can access and help the disaster prone area.
