COVID-19 Aid Distribution Phase 2

Dear our respected donors across the globe,

I kindly reach you again to update our humanitarian assistance, especially COVID-19 Aid Distribution in Indonesia. As I informed you previously that all 34 provinces in Indonesia are facing COVID-19 and there are about 2,5 million new unemployment since early March 2020, various workers from the informal sectors also experienced a decline or even no income at all. A number of companies have terminated their employment, the vulnerable families are hoping our hands to pursue their daily life such as food aid as basic need. 

On May 29, 2020, ACT team prepared food packages that would distribute to 2 locations in Jakarta. Food package preparation carried out at the ACT Foundation warehouse in Gunung Sindur, Bogor. Then, the following day, ACT team distributed 200 food packages to 200 families in RW 5 Kel. Chinese Bidara, Kec. Jatinegara East Jakarta. After the aid distribution was completed, the team resumed the distribution of assistance to 60 families in Rawa Buaya Village, Cengkareg District, West Jakarta. The aid was distributed to widows, the elderly and disadvantaged families affected by the co-19 pandemic.

The two implementation locations are densely populated locations with a lower middle income economy. Most people are daily workers who get paid daily. When conditions such as the pandemic COVID-19, people have difficulty meet their daily needs because they have to stay at home to obey government regulation (lock-down). The distribution of food packages runs smoothly with the help of all parties. Food package assistance is given to those who really need it, such as widows, the elderly and disadvantaged families.

Tini (58) is one of the beneficiaries of Food Aid assistance from GlobalGiving donors in the Bidara China region, Jatinegara District, East Jakarta. Before pandemic Covid-19, a-58-year-old widow work as a-cake-seller in the Jatinegara market. Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Tini stopped selling the cake. In addition because there are restrictions on activity, Tini said she was afraid of being exposed to the Corona virus. To meet her daily needs, Tini only relies on food supplies from the aid that comes.

Joko (65) works as a collector of used goods. After his wife died a few month ago, Joko was left alone in a small crib in the Rawa Buaya area, Cengkareng District, West Jakarta. Joko expressed his gratitude for the assistance of the Food Aid package from GlobalGiving distributed through ACT Foundation. Rice and a number of staples aid is enough to help guarantee their needs for the next one month.

Indeed, thank you very much for your kindness and sincere help for Indonesian community, your help are amazing and incredible for us. Please stay safe and healthy.

Warm regards,

 

Mohamad F. Amrullah
