Help Balinese people through the COVID19 crisis

Westerlaken Foundation has been giving aid in Indonesia since 2008. We have worked for six months in Lombok after the devastating earthquakes in 2018, worked in Palu after the tsunami and relieved communities effected by the volcano  eruptions in Bali. 

Tourism in Bali has been severely affected by the current COVID-19 outbreak. The streets are empty, hotels are empty, flights are canceled. The first foreigners in Bali died from the COVID-19 virus.

Many hotels and restaurants closed down, leaving their staff on unpaid leave, without any social plan. Many people are vulnerable and need help. 

Westerlaken foundation is currently also having trouble to make ends meet financially due to declining donations and because of the fact that 50% of our annual budget comes in by selling surf lessons to tourists. These lessons are canceled en masse.

As a foundation, we must help those who are vulnerable. As a foundation we need you to help us do that.
