This month, marked one year the Covid-19 pandemic happen globally including in Bali, Indonesia. We have been able to work closely with local governments and community iniciatives and also private sectors to provide essential needs for people in needs, in Bali and beyond. Bali is still close for international tourism due to Covid-19 pandemic. This is affecting many people in Bali generally. There are many businesses closed, big and small businesses.
There are around 150.000 unemployment in Bali because of many businesses closed. Bali relied heavily on tourism as 80% population working in tourism industry. Many people who work in urban area supporting their family in rural area, but they can't do that anymore due they laid off by the company.
As we worked with local government, we searched for people in needs in rural area of Bali. This month we went up to north of Bali, which is about 3 hours away from the international airport. We support 100 families which we prioritise for elderly, people with disabilities and people with no income. Those are people who urgently need help. We support 100 packages of 2 weeks food supplies consist of total :
1000 kgs of rice
200 liters of cooking oil
200 boxes of noodles
And also additional : 24 water filters and 100 packages of soaps.
With these food and daily supplies, we are able to ease the burden of the family in needs. We are able to do this because of your support and your donation. We will continue our work with your help and distribute the food supplies to other rural areas in Bali. We hope that Bali will be opened for international tourism and build up the economy again soon. This is a challenging time for all of us, particularly in Bali, Indonesia but we will back stronger than ever. Once again behalf of people in Bali, Indonesia, thank you for your support.
