Food for wastepicker families in Indonesia COVID19

Bantar Gebang is a small village out of Jakarta/ Indonesia. 

It has the largest uncovered landfill of south-east asia with the size of 110 hectares.

Around 8.000 tonnes of Jakartas waste are arriving here daily.

Approximately 20.000 people are living within and around the landfill. Most of them, including children, are earning their income by collecting plastic, electronics and metals and selling them to the recycle companies. These families are living in and from the landfill.

Since the COVID-19 case, many of these companies have shut down due to the price drop of the materials and many waste pickers have lost their jobs. Their families are struggling now to satisfy their members with food.

The BGBJ Team is raising money to support a community in Indonesia with prepared food packages for families who are in need.  It is worth it to visit our Facebook Page "The Kingdom of BGBJ" or our website to learn more about what the BGBJ is and what it does. 

The Team has contributed and has also already received a big support from friends, families and sponsor. Thanks to all of them, the community support campaign was able to start up running since the beginning of March 2020 and the BGBJ Team were satisfyingly able to support families with food through out.

The packages include:
- Rice 5kg
- Instant Noodles 10 pks 
- Cooking Oil 1 litre
- Chicken Serundeng 1 box 
- Salt 250gr
- Eggs 1 box
- Big canned sardines 1
- Tea bags 1 box
- Home made Meal 1 box (catered by "The Kingdom of BGBJ)

One package's estimated value is 330.000 Rupiah = approx 20 Euros.  And it can last for one week.

With 20 Euros you are able to feed a family for one week. With 80 Euros for one month.

Please share this campaign and support us to help the families through this period of hardship. With your help the food supply won't stop. 

Thank you for your support and donations.
