Project Nasi – Bali COVID-19 (gofundme page information)
Project Nasi is about supplying the bare essentials to Balinese in desperate need of supplies, in order to help communities survive the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak.
This is an unprecedented global catastrophe with huge economic impacts, and the potential for the worst case scenarios in a lot of places…but this is also an OPPORTUNITY for us to UNITE and SUPPORT one another, and come out the other side of this disaster better than we were before. This is an extraordinarily difficult time for all of us, we are all doing it very tough at the moment, but some of us are still lucky enough to be in a position to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
Nearly all of Bali’s population of 4 million are either directly or indirectly dependent on tourism, and most have now lost their jobs or are on leave without pay. There is no government welfare system to support them, and with a minimum wage of just a few hundred dollars a month, nearly everyone lives pay cheque to pay cheque with little or no savings.
Many of us consider Bali our second home and would love to give some support but don’t know where to start. If you can spare just a few dollars, that’s enough to make a difference to an individual or a small family, and will help the communities in our home away from home survive the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Money will be used to buy essentials like nasi (rice), mie (noodles), cooking oil, basic cooking condiments, fresh local fruit and vegetables, drinking water, water filters, soap, sanitizer, face masks, gloves, etc. which will then given be to the local Banjars to distribute to their communities.
We want this project to be as transparent as possible so that you can see the great impact of your donation. In this info sheet, which will be regularly updated, you can see where the money has gone to and how many people it has helped: Project Nasi Factsheet
If you have a spare dollar please donate, if you don’t have a spare dollar but have a spare minute please share, and if you’re feeling really generous do both!
Please note if you are having any issues donating or donating from Bali try using VPN it may help.
Thanks in advance for your support!
