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 April 7th 2020, there are 2,491 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 the provinces. In the long term, and as the curve of those infected in these communities increase, they will be facing the brunt of the pandemic in the form of loss of income. The income loss in turn will have impacts on physical & mental health, children's nutrition and overall family well-being.

Solution

YUM has prepared a task force in our working areas of West Java and Central Kalimantan to provide support for 4,000 families. Each family will receive 4 bars of soap and 4 masks. For families most at risk (daily wagers and single parents) and for the elderly, basic food necessities will be distributed. By providing these basic hygiene and food necessities, families will be able to protect themselves from the virus.

Long-Term Impact

By keeping the most disadvantaged families in our communities safe and healthy, this will reduce potential loss of income due to a sick family member. Loss of income will only aggravate the issue of generational poverty within the family, which Yayasan Usaha Mulia is trying to put a stop to through our health and education projects.
