The existence of the Corona virus (Covid-19) pandemic is still a nightmare for the community and the government. The implementation of Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) was also carried out as an effort by the government to suppress the rate of transmission of Covid-19. However, this PPKM policy should be balanced with the spirit of humanity.
The Policy for the Implementation of Restrictions on Community Activities (PPKM) is indeed quite effective in reducing the number of positive cases of Covid-19 in Indonesia. Quoting on the official Peta Sebaran | Covid19.go.id as of September 16, 2021, the recovery rate has increased by 11,046. The active cases decreased by 7,365.
However, on the other hand, PPKM limits the space for community activities so that it has a fairly large impact, especially in the economic sector. In fact, several outlets in large malls are temporarily closed for an indefinite period of time. This also applies, not least to MSME actors, some of whom have to suffer losses.
Various kinds of negative information did continue to exist during PPKM. However, the spirit of humanity among stakeholders always brings positive energy in the form of new hope in efforts to control the pandemic.
Human Initiative as a humanitarian agency that has been officially registered with the United Nations since 2008, does not miss its contribution, especially to communities affected by Covid-19 during this PPKM period.
One of them is the humanitarian assistance program for orphans due to Covid-19 in Jabodetabek areas. The beneficiaries aged 4-17 years received assistance packages in the form of educational allowances, food packages, hygiene kits, as well as PPE in the form of masks and hand sanitizers.
Furthermore, later this program will intersect with the Foster Parents program, namely educational assistance and assistance for orphans due to COVID-19 with the concept of foster parents or foster siblings, with a participatory and collaborative pattern, by forming a family and child-friendly environment.
