The spread of the Corona virus has reached out all provinces in Indonesia, without exception, East Nusa Tenggara Province. Even though, the positive case of Covid19 is not too high, the NTT Government continues to give advice to the community to abide by the Covid19 preventative health protocol, one of which is by continuing to use cloth masks and maintaining cleanliness.
This condition has an impact to the people who assisted by FMCH Indonesia lived in two remote villages, Nunleu Village and Mio Village. Children, parents and adults are also required to wear cloth masks when leaving the house or in the fields. The village government also prohibits activities that mobilize large crowds in one place. If it violates, the community will be liable to sanctions / disbanded.
For this reason, FMCH Indonesia contributed to the prevention of Covid19 by distributing 511 cloth masks and hygiene packages in the form of hand-washing soap, detergent and antiseptic liquid, to children and families and to provide education about Covid19 and how to behave in a healthy life. This cloth mask is produced by the FMCH Indonesia Skill Team.
The distribution of cloth masks and hygiene packages in Nunleu Village was carried out three times on 16, 20 and 31 May 2020, due to unfavorable weather conditions such as rain accompanied by strong winds. While the distribution of masks and hygiene packages in the village of Mio took place on May 24, 2020.
“Thank you FMCH Indonesia for sharing the cloth masks and hygiene packages to the people of Mio village. We were greatly helped, because we did not have the help of masks like this. I hope that the people here can obey to wear masks and maintain cleanliness so there is no positive case of Covid19. Once again, thank you.” Mrs. PDT Diana Rs Oematan, S.Th (Priest of Mio Church)
The distribution of cloth masks and hygiene packages will not be carried out properly if there is no support from the Priscilla Hall Memorial-Foundation and Donald William Hall. For this reason, FMCH Indonesia would like to thank to PHMF for continuing support our programs.
