Komodo dragon, Komodo National Park, Indonesia.
These are crazy times aren’t they? At this point – we all know the virus is there and has affected almost every aspect of our world. Almost every continent and country has been affected. Almost certainly each of us is directly impacted in one form or another.
However, we are not asking for help with our business. We are asking for help in the community. With tourism shut down, there is no income. In Flores/Komodo a whole generation has grown up entirely dependent on tourism. This was already a marginal area, with very few other employment options available. Now it has become a crisis. We have done all we can to aid and assist in providing for our own staff and their families, but the whole region is struggling. The lack of tourism has impacted every industry and most families.
This has gone from an inconvenience to a disaster. Most parents are unable to provide for their children. We can make a difference, and so can you. 50USD/40EUR can actually provide the basic necessities for a family of 4 for one month! This essentials care package is made up of rice, noodles, eggs, cooking oil, cabbage, soap and drinking water.
