In spite of the necessity to self-isolate during the Covid-19 crisis, millions of Indonesians can’t afford to stay at home given their jobs and financial obligations. Our front-line medical personnel are under-equipped, while millions of low-income families and other financially vulnerable groups of people must bear the consequences of having their livelihood cut off.
Let's show our solidarity by helping our brothers and sisters during this great crisis. Through our campaigns, your donation will be used to purchase medical equipment and other essential products for our brave medical personnel, volunteers and other at-risk individuals who are affected by the Covid-19 crisis.
-----------No matter where we are, we all can make a difference----------
------Dimana pun kita berada, kita bisa turut membawa perubahan-----
