Almost half of the population in Indonesia is reported to live below the poverty line and the pandemic that causing the economic downturn has increased the total poverty number from 25 million to 26.42 million. With the current situation the government expected the poverty rate to reach 28 million which explained that many families will face difficulties to survive.
The street vendors and the rickshaw pullers are the most affected in Gresik, Surabaya due to the pandemic as the Tourism Industry paralyzed. The income of a street vendor is from Rp1.860.272,78 (RM531) to Rp4.963.218,67 per month which most of them have an average of RM17 to buy food for one day and it surely not enough to support the whole family. This Ramadan would be even tougher for them without your help.
This Ramadan would be very meaningful for the people in need if we could provide them with Ramadan food baskets assistance. The cost to support a family isn’t that expensive and if we couldn’t support a food basket, any amount can make a difference. A food basket will include rice, sugar, onion, flour, egg, and other cooking stuff that will benefit the family for the whole month of Ramadan.
