Summary

As the pandemic continues, the devastation to Bali's tourism economy worsens. Many people have lost jobs and returned to subsistence farming to survive. With tourism unlikely to return for 2 more years, food security is becoming a serious issue. Women and child health is of special concern. Bumi Sehat has developed a delivery program of regular food packages which meet the basic nutritional needs of mothers and children. We have a funding shortfall to run this program for another year.

Challenge

As the pandemic enters its second year, the devastation of Bali's tourism economy worsens. Many people have lost jobs and returned to subsistence farming to feed their families. With tourism unlikely to return for another 1-2 years, food security is a serious issue. Maternal and child health are of special concern, as malnutrition causes dangerous hemmorrhage after childbirth for women, stunting, impaired immunity and reduced quality of life in children, and serious Covid-19 complications.

Solution

Bumi Sehat is delivering regular food packages which meet the basic nutritional needs of mothers and their children. The package contains eggs, oil and rice if families have access to land for growing food, or with added vegetables for people who have no land. While delivering the food, the Bumi Sehat team also offers free medical checks and distributes good quality vitamins, further reducing the impact of malnutrition, and catching any potential medical problems early.

Long-Term Impact

By ensuring that vulnerable women and children in Bali are given regular deliveries of basic food staples, such as eggs, rice and vegetables, Bumi Sehat can help minimise potential malnutrition problems. In addition, offering regular medical checkups and good quality vitamins will also help to keep pregnant or nursing women and children healthier, and spot any medical problems before they become serious.
