COVID19 Pandemic Situation and Impact

​THE PANDEMIC SITUATION

  • Corona Virus is a highly infectious virus and the only prevention is by self-isolation and social distancing.

  • By mid March, Indonesian government has instructed the country to #stayathome (in Bahasa Indonesia - #dirumahaja) to avoid the spread and majority of people has since then worked from home or study from home.

  • However "just" staying at home is a challenge for certain people, especially marginal community with profession who earns “on the street”

    • Scavenger

    • Street vendors

    • Online ride drivers (Gojek & Grab drivers)
       

THE IMPACT

  • Marginal Communities

    • The impact of #StayAtHome causing the economy to slow down which results in many people losing income or job.

    • Added with the rise of food price due to panic buying by certain group of people.

    • Making the conditions of the marginal community even more worse

  • Frontliners (Medical Team)

    • The pandemic causes an influx of patients seeking medical help, which causes our medical workers to be overwhelmed

    • Often meals for medical team are not readily available for a few reasons, one of them being food vendors  / canteen are not operating. 

    • Medical workers are fighting the pandemic at the front line. They should be equipped well, and one of them is by providing nutritious meals

Responding to the situation, FoodCycle Indonesia activated COVID19 Emergency Food Relief Program. There are 2 main activities under this program currently running:

  1. Food donations to marginal communities (#NasiTelorCeplok #MakanDiRumah)

  2. Food donations to medical team (#JagaPangan)
