However, in some regions in Bali that show a higher density of expats and potential tourism (both national and international) the situation has been easier to navigate than for those who live in remote areas and villages far from foreign support. This particularly affects the villages in the North and East of Bali. Many resorts in these more quiet areas (as opposed to the South, West and Center of Bali) had to close their doors during the absence of tourism due to Covid-19. Many villagers have lost their incomes and with this a stable source for food.
For our next delivery which is scheduled for June 18th, we have decided to expand into the more remote regions of Bali, in particular the region around Mount Agung, Bali's biggest volcano to support the local communities that have been struggling immensely, not only since the outbreak of Covid-19, but also since Mount Agung's latest activities in 2017. With being right at the feet of our majestic volcano tourism shied away when the big mountain started to spit lava, ashes and smoke. The livelihood of the families in these regions are at stake. We are therefore reaching out to our community for further support and donations. If there is a dime to spare or you'd like more information, please head over to our website for further information.
We are looking forward to supporting the families further North this month. Please stay connected via Instagram and Newsletter to learn more about our 'Adopt a Family' project.
