dewerstone feeds families in Lombok, Indonesia with t-shirt sales
Indonesia has been hit hard by COVID 19, with recorded cases of 3,194,733 and the increasing death toll, unfortunately making it the new epicentre. With the strict Government lockdowns and the lack of tourism that makes up 80% of the GDP for Indonesia, thousands of families have had no income for many many months and are facing very hard times.
3 weeks ago, the dewerstone Gili Islands store manager Nizar reached out to the rest of the team in the UK with a simple yet effective idea, this being dewerstone working with the local communities in and around the area of Lombok, Indonesia to help distribute much needed food for families suffering from lockdowns, Corona Virus illness and unemployment.
After researching just how vital getting food parcels out there was, we decided to go 100% in and make it that from 17th – 31st July any tee, purchased anywhere, online, in-store or at your local stockist would go to buying and distributing food parcels in Lombok.
Together dewerstone delivered 5,500kg of rice, 1000 litres of cooking oil, 10,800 eggs, 326,000 grams of noodles to the local communities devastated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
