Summary

This initiative will allow us to support disadvantaged communities in West Java and Central Kalimantan, where more than 50% of the population live below the poverty line. Daily wagers and single parents, who don't have the luxury of working from home, are already struggling to survive. With this virus, we are seeing a real crisis ahead. With your help, soaps, masks, food packages and education about the disease will be provided for 4,000 families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Challenge

As of September 7, there are close to 200,000 cases of Covid-19 found in Indonesia. Experts confirm that Indonesia has not yet reached its peak and the number of cases will continue rising especially in rural areas. Many workers, especially informal, are facing the brunt of the pandemic in the form of loss of employment and loss of income, leading to declining purchasing power, subsequently increasing the risk of food insecurity, malnutrition and stunting. One in three children are stunted here.

Solution

YUM has a task force in our working areas of West Java and Central Kalimantan to provide support for 4,000 families. In April, these families received soaps and masks. For families most at risk (daily wagers and single parents) and for the elderly, basic food necessities were distributed. Today, our focus is on the future, making sure that poor families have proper nutrition, especially those with pregnant mothers and small babies, and to ensure that parents are aware of the dangers of stunting.

Long-Term Impact

By keeping the most disadvantaged families in our communities safe and healthy, this will reduce potential risk of malnutrition and stunting in the family. Generational poverty within the family can be eliminated by making sure the children are healthy, starting from the womb, receive quality education and become productive adults, which Yayasan Usaha Mulia is trying to promote through our health and education projects.
