One Million Meal Coupon Movement – Feeding 5,000 people in Bali
*You can show your contribution by donating at least one ticket that would be converted into 10 meal coupons.
Dear friends from all around the world,
During these trying hours, I want to give you an update from the island that I call home. As you know that this pandemic doesn’t just hit the healthcare system, but also our daily life here including the tourism industry.
The very first case in Indonesia was detected in early March, and then from there the government stopped giving visa on arrival for tourists, even banned any foreigners to enter Indonesia soon after.
Consequently, the whole Bali economy collapsed within its first week. There are thousand of workers in the hotels, villas, restaurants and cafes that are being sent home without payment because there’s no incoming tourist.
Suddenly “work from home” has become a trend globally, but this is not the case for people who work in the tourism industry as they start to lose their jobs. There are thousands of people who would struggle to survive until things come back to normal.
So in this spirit, we created ONE MILLION MEAL COUPON MOVEMENT to help these people in need.
How does this work? One coupon equals to one time meal in a local eatery place here called warung. Each person will get 60 meal coupons per month. That means two meals per day. This is a three months program and one million coupon will feed more than 16.000 people in three months, or about 5.500 people per month.
I’m glad that people are doing what they can to help the community as I’ve seen so many good people in social media that help each other during these hard times.
I believe this kind of act restores our faith in humanity. So if you feel like you wanna help, you can click the donation button on this page and start giving.
We will give you an update about our progress on this page and also on our youtube channel.
