Dear our respected donors across the globe,
I hope this letter finds you, your family are doing very well. Hopefully the uncertain time would end as soon as possible.
Today, I am back to deliver the updates from the ground team who delivered the coronavirus aid distribution for affected comunities in Indonesia.
June 1st, 2020 ACT Foundation West Java Branch has distributed total of 125 food aid for the elderly in densely populated areas in the Sengol Gang, Burangrang sub district, Lengkong District, Bandung City. At the same day the ACT Foundation Team West Java Branch also distributed 97 food packages aid to residents in flood-affected areas in Parung Halang, Bandung Regency.
The majority beneficiaries are residents who working as street vendors (food seller on the street) and most of their livelihoods / income are affected by the impact of Covid 19. Meanwhile, ACT Foundation ground team also distributed food aid to communities who affected by flood that occurred in April 2020 in Parung Halang Bandung West Java. The majority of their livelihoods are farmers, pedicab drivers, and factory workers who got laid off from the factory. The implementation program has proceeded smoothly, the local authorities and the village head as a community leader have been involved to help the distribution.
During the Covid 19 pandemic, the government released the policy that the resident must stay at home. Unfortunately, there is no aid distribution from the government twhich is needed by inhabitants. Free food assistance that delivered by GlobalGiving donots are very important for the community and they felt very happy and certainly grateful because it can help ease the burden of what they are experiencing at the moment. All of them are expecting that the Covid 19 pandemic will end soon and get a solution to restore the community's condition even better.
Finally, thank you very much for your generous support and it is very helpful for Indonesian community. Please stay safe and healthy.
Mohamad F. Amrullah
