Bali Children’s Project’s COVID-19 Food Relief Appeal hit a milestone as over 30,000 USD has been raised to help families struggling in Bali.
It equates to over 750 large food packages that include non-perishable essential food supplies.
With Bali closed to international tourism, the pandemic has hit the economy hard. It has meant that families who were already living in poverty are finding life even more difficult.
The outpouring of support from Bali Children’s Project donors has meant that families have their burden eased during these difficult times. It’s helping poverty stricken families have a brief respite from the havoc caused by the pandemic.

Appeal for Relief Packages
“We launched the appeal when it became clear that there was less work and families would be struggling to live.” Anastasia Rahayu, Sponsorship Manager for Bali Children’s Project said.
“These packages have made an incredible difference. We’ve been able to put smiles on the faces of families who live in poverty and ease their burden.”
“We are so grateful for the support from donors who have helped us reach this milestone.”
“We intend to run the appeal as long as it is needed. Things are very difficult for families with hardly any income and we will do everything in our power to help them.”
