COVID-19 Relief

Among the most vulnerable communities, it is often challenging to access needed aid. Many of these families are from other cities, without identification, do not have stable monthly jobs with benefits, and are often excluded in the data that receives government support. In June 2020, Compassion First served over 450 vulnerable families living in and around two cemetery communities with food relief packages helping supply their basic needs. Community members were grateful for the support and care, as finding work and providing their basic daily necessities has been extremely challenging this year with COVID-19 and city-wide stay at home orders. Our second distribution happened in December of 2020, where we served another 500 families in the East Java Cemetery community. 

We plan to serve the second cemetery community with 120 families in early 2021 after the next stay at home order is lifted. Thank you for your love and support for our East Java community.

2020 has brought opportunity for new depths of resilience discovery in all of us. I’m not sure challenges make us stronger as much as awaken dormant strength that’s already there.

Every year through friendship, entrepreneurship, and education opportunities, we have historically served about 50 families living in East Java cemeteries. Then COVID-19 came and things changed. Since the lock-down restrictions this spring, we have served 450 more through relief food distribution. Keeping in step with government regulations and social distancing measures, CF centers in East Java are actively engaging teens in the cemetery through one-to-one mentoring and small group academic sessions.

In addition to food and supplies, our team has been distributing activity packets to children in lock-down conditions throughout cemetery communities in East Java. Sometimes it’s the little things. Thank you for your on-going support of this very vulnerable and resilient community.
