Care packages

 

This program provides much needed basics for people who don’t have anything. For asylum seekers and refugees with no choice but to live on the streets of Jakarta, some with small children. For asylum seekers and refugees who may have a roof over their heads but nothing else. No furniture, thin mats on the floor for sleeping, no regular support, and little to no ability to buy basic bathroom and hygiene essentials.

 For our first project in August 2017 we put together 40 care packages for families living on the streets of Jakarta. Now, we are delivering 100 care packages every month in different areas of Jakarta and Bogor.

Items:

toothbrush (every 3 months)

toothpaste

soap

shampoo

wet tissue (children below 2 years old)

dry tissue

towel

detergent powder

shower sponge (every 3 months)

babies diapers (children below 2 years old)

milk powder (children below 3 years old)

women’s menstruation essentials/underwear

disposable razors (every 2 months)

pens/pencils/notebooks (for those going to learning centers)

Impact:

 

Severe skin issues have been eliminated among those who receive care packages every month.
