Aug 21, 2021

MADANI-funded CSO partners in 15 districts are taking the lead in facilitating vaccine access for vulnerable populations, including women and people with disabilities, crowdsourcing food and financial resources to support vulnerable families, and supporting public health workers to share accurate information related to COVID-19 prevention and vaccination.

In Garut (West Java), the local branch of Nasyiatul Aisyiyah, the young women’s branch of Muhammadiyah’s nationwide women’s organization, has during August worked with the Indonesian Midwives Association (IBI), the Indonesian Association of Persons with Disabilities (PPDI), and community volunteers from the Integrated Village Health Posts (Posyandu) to reach out to and vaccinate more than 200 students with disabilities. Similarly, the CSO partner in Lebak (Banten), the Women’s Resource Development Center (PPSW Pasoendan) has signed an agreement with the local COVID-19 Task Force to support a COVID-19 Care House to mobilize donations to help community members dealing with the impact of COVID-19 and is distributing food and vitaminsto local residents who are self-isolating.
