Families like Wayan Ardi’s are struggling to cope during the crisis.
The whole family works at a small brick making factory. They get paid based on demand and orders. But with COVID-19 grinding many businesses to a halt, there have been far fewer orders. It means the family is on an even lower income than the basic amount they were accustomed to.
Wayan was sponsored for school to help stop him from dropping out and working full time, but now his sponsor has had to cancel. He is now back on the Sponsorship Waiting List.
Now that there is less work, the family has less money. With no reserves in the bank and unable to take any loans, the family has little hope of getting through the pandemic unscathed.
Our appeal will be helping families like Wayan Ardi’s with the most basic of needs – food supplies.
The supply package will include non perishable food items, giving the family much needed relief. It means that they can get by on their lowered income while not having to worry about how they will eat.
Across our programs, we work with hundreds of families who are all seeing the effects of COVID-19 on them. We ask supporters to help us be there for them and give them the basic necessaties to live.
