Hi, respected donors!

I am writing to you to report on the update of Covid-19 response programs.

In responding to overcome the threat of Covid-19, Humanity Medical Services of ACT collaborates with Pasar Minggu Community Health Center in administering Covid-19 vaccines 1 and 2 doses to the communities.

The types of vaccines given are Sinovac, Pfizer and Astra Zenecca. In addition, vaccination participants were also given the information related to post-vaccine treatment to avoid excessive AEFIs. Vaccine recipients are also provided with paracetamol to be used as supplies in case of fever.

With this vaccination program, hopefully it can slow down the spread of Covid 19 in Indonesia.

Thank you for channeling your donation and supporting us in responding to the pandemic.

Hope you are well and safe.

Dear
Our respected donors across the globe,

I am reaching you again to deliver the updates on Covid-19 aid distribution in Indonesia. The ground team have been delivered baby lobster and catfish for the farmers in Tsunami and COVID-19 affected the small business sector in Aceh, Indonesia.

The Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) sector has emerged as a highly vibrant and dynamic sector of the Indonesian economy over the last five decades. MSMEs not only play a crucial role in providing large employment opportunities at comparatively lower capital costs than large industries but also help in the industrialization of rural & backward areas, thereby, reducing regional imbalances, assuring more equitable distribution of national income and wealth. MSMEs are complementary to large industries as ancillary units and contribute enormously to the socio-economic development of the country.

Now, there is a sector of a society reeling from the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the swift and undefined changes, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) have become vulnerable. Like the laws that protected the orphans and widows of old, regulations must be put in place to ensure that MSMEs thrive in a challenging milieu.

Aceh is a province in Indonesia that is located at the northern end of the island of Sumatra and is the westernmost province in Indonesia. The high unemployment rate and poverty rate in Aceh are some of the consequences of various factors. For years, it has been identified as the poorest province in Sumatra. Even though in March 2021, it was recorded that there is a decrease in the number of poor populations by 0.02 per cent, Statistics Indonesia (BPS) notes that the quantity of poor people in Aceh has actually expanded as much as 5.1 thousand individuals. In March 2021, it is recorded that the number of poor in Tanah Rencong was around 814.91 thousand people. It can’t be denied that this is such a big number that a province should take care of.

As also reported by the Head of the Office of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises of Aceh Province, there were 102,000 MSMEs affected by COVID-19 or it could be said that 100% were affected. Microbusinesses were affected due to shortages of raw materials and also marketing during the pandemic which resulted in decreased production capacity and decreased income of micro business actors. MSMEs are also greatly exposed to the economic downturn resulting from COVID-19 because of their size. For example, they typically have relatively low cash reserves and thus only a small cushion with which to weather an economic shock.

Mr. Ardi (40 years old) one of the beneficiaries thanked GlobalGiving for the baby lobster and catfish distribution. Mr. Ardi is unable to work during COVID-19 due to social restrictions. Mr. Ardi then started to build a business in order to survive by raising lobster and catfish.

Finally, it is incredible support from GlobalGiving donors who always support the Indonesian community at any condition, we hope that the Covid-19 could end as soon as possible. Please stay safe and healthy.

The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is not ended yet, and the impact to the global resession especially in developing countries such as Indonesia which millions of people pushed into poverty. 

The latest Indonesian government policy, will tighten mobility restrictions in some areas for two weeks starting from Tuesday (June 22) after a rise in Covid-19 cases, including limiting the number of workers in offices and barring religious activities at houses of worship, a minister said.The curbs will apply to ‘red zones’ where cases have been rising sharply this month, Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto told a streamed news conference on Monday. The tightened regulations will mean that offices, restaurants, cafes and malls in such areas will only be permitted to operate at 25 per cent capacity.


The ACT Foundation keep continue to distribute the Covid-19 aid distribution especially on the economic empowernemnt program for the backbone families in Bogor - West Java. There were nine backbone families who received the "market stalls" to continue their owned-business. 

Some of the beneficiaries called Dewi is a back-bone mother who has been struggling to support her family for daily-income. She has a small-owned-business called "mie-ayam", Mie ayam, mi ayam or bakmi ayam (Indonesian for 'chicken bakmi', literally chicken noodles) is a common Indonesian dish of seasoned yellow wheat noodles topped with diced chicken meat (ayam). Mie-Ayam served from simple travelling vendor carts frequenting residential areas, humble street-side warung to restaurants, and her income is about 50USD per day.

Moreover, Hanafi the family backbone who sells D’Raja Pempek or empek-empek is a savoury Indonesian fishcake delicacy, made of fish and tapioca, from Palembang, South Sumatera, Indonesia. Pempek is served with rich sweet and sour sauce called kuah cuka or kuah cuko (lit. vinegar sauce), or just "cuko". Sometimes local people also eat the dish with yellow noodles and diced up cucumber to balance out the vinegar's sourness. He got the laid off from the company previously and now he has been selling the traditional food and earn about 70USD per day.

All the beneficiaries hope that by having the market-stalls utilities could improve their daily-economic-income. They were so gratefull to receive the Covid-19 aid from the GlobalGiving donors. Please stay safe and healthy.

The program that ACT  Foundation distributed was the hygyne kits for survivors. The main reason is that the hygyne kits distribution is essential need for the survivors who lost their houses that damaged by the earthquake. There were 100 beneficiaries and the location called Kalubibing-Mamunyu, Sub-District Mamuju, District Mamuju, West Sulawesi.

Dear 
Our respected donors across the globe,

I am reaching you again to deliver the updates on Covid-19 aid distribution in Indonesia. The ground team have been delivered 400 food packages for Palu's earthquake-tsunami-liquefaction's survivors.

Just to remind that, it was on 28 September 2018, a shallow, large earthquake struck in the neck of the Minahasa Peninsula, Indonesia, with its epicentre located in the mountainous Donggala Regency, Central Sulawesi. The magnitude 7.5 quake was located 70 km (43 mi) away from the provincial capital Palu and was felt as far away as Samarinda on East Kalimantan and also in Tawau, Malaysia.[5] This event was preceded by a sequence of foreshocks, the largest of which was a magnitude 6.1 tremor that occurred earlier that day.

Following the mainshock, a tsunami alert was issued for the nearby Makassar Strait. A localised tsunami struck Palu, sweeping shore-lying houses and buildings on its way. The combined effects of the earthquake and tsunami led to the deaths of an estimated 4,340 people.This makes it the deadliest earthquake to strike the country since the 2006 Yogyakarta earthquake, as well as the deadliest earthquake worldwide in 2018, surpassing the previous earthquake that struck Lombok a few months earlier, killing more than 500. The Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG) confirmed that a tsunami had been triggered, with its height reaching an estimated maximum of 4 to 7 metres (13 to 23 ft), striking the settlements of Palu, Donggala and Mamuju along its path. 

The earthquake caused major soil liquefaction in areas in and around Palu. In two locations this led to mudflows in which many buildings became submerged causing hundreds of deaths with many more missing. The liquefaction was considered to be the largest in the world and was deemed as rare. 

It has been 2 (two) years the disasters has been passed, and there are still unsolved problems for survivors especially on the development of economy, the numbers of unemployment are raising, damages-schools, etc. and the Covid-19 make more difficult for survivors.    

The aid ditribution take place in Sigi Regency and Donggala Regency, Palu, Central Sulawesi on November 13th, 2020. 
Iqbal one of beneficiaries said that we are very happy to receive the aid from GlobalGiving donors and we hope that the aid could lighten up for us to face the uncertain time. The other beneficiaries who is a widow so grateful to receive the aid, she said that as a widow felt so difficult to get informal daily labour and so impressed to GlobalGiving donors and ACT Foundation which always deliver the aid at any condition that face by the earthquake-tsunami-liquefaction's survivors. 

Indonesian community across provinces in Indonesia huge thanks to all of you. Your geneousity and sincere help directly benefit for vulnerable families across Indonesia. Please stay safe and healthy.
