UPDATE:

Thanks to your generosity, we have managed to feed 80 families with the amount raised so far! I am now increasing the target to RM 20,000 for the residents of Mantani island to weather the extended CMCO. Your kind donations are greatly appreciated.

 

THE PROBLEM


As the number of Corona Virus increases, many families were forced to remain indoors. Those who relied on their day to day income were badly affected and were unable to afford basic necessities. There are 53 families on Mantanani Island, Sabah who are struggling to sustain themselves, as they used to depend heavily on tourism for income. They would generate income from small scale fishing, working in resorts, water sports or making handicrafts, but now they have no visitors at all. They have been jobless since February.

 

THE SOLUTION


I have partnered together with Reef Check Malaysia who will assist the islanders in getting supplies that they need.

We have estimated that it would cost RM100 per household for essential food supplies for 1-2 weeks, this includes:

  • Rice
  • Eggs
  • Noodles
  • Sugar
  • Cooking Oil
  • Coffee/ Tea

 

THE IMPACT


With this, the villagers on Mantanani Island will be able to sustain their lives without needing to worry about their basic necessities for 1-2 weeks. Hopefully, this will relieve their daily burden and bring joy to their faces.

 

Let's help each other out in times of need, no matter how big or small the amount is, it would make a difference in the lives of the islanders.

About the Organization/Project behind this Campaign

Ooi Erjun


Hi, I’m Erjun, a female who’s passionate about protecting the environment and the people around it. I’ve created Us For Ocean, to educate and spread awareness about the importance of Marine Life, and how we should take care of it before it all disappears. As I’ve always believed that at the end of the day, it’s not about what we have or what we’ve accomplished. It’s about who we’ve lifted up and who we’ve made better. It’s what we’ve given back. I’m here to raise funds for causes that I truly care about. Let’s try to make the lives of other better.
