The paradise island is suffering. Covid-19 wreaks havoc on Bali's tourism industry. Over 6 million foreigners fly to Bali each year in search of beaches, rice fields, culture and temples. The sudden drop in tourism beginning in April 2020 has driven at least 150,000 people below the poverty line. As residents of Bali, we see people suffering each and every day that the global pandemic persists, We are here to help, but we can only help as much as we can afford to. We need your help to help those affected.
HopeForBali is known locally through an Instagram movement: @20ribuuntuk2020 (which means Rp.20,000 for 2020). We started in April 2020 by asking friends and colleagues to donate Rp. 20.000 (US$1.36 or AU$1.90) to buy food for the elderly and children currently living on the streets. Initially we thought it would be a temporary activity, but now we can't seem to stop! The number of people needing our help (and YOUR help) is climbing fast!
In October 2020, we founded a charitable foundation : Yayasan Hope For Bali
We set up this website, HopeForBali.org, to raise awareness for this problem
Now we are hoping for your kindness and generosity to provide relief to those that need it the most.
Your generous donation can help us keep supporting vulnerable and elderly residents of Bali who have been adversely affected by Covid-19. This unprecedented crisis for Bali’s tourism industry (its main economic driver) has left far too many people struggling to meet their most basic needs.
Your donation to HopeForBali.org can, and will, make a difference.
