In a COVID-19 world, we will need to be even more creative and adaptable to ensure research continuity. We have started the process to ‘reset’ our program.
RISE is doubling down to support the program’s informal settlement residents in Makassar - the capital of South Sulawesi, which has become one of the country’s leading provinces in coronavirus cases.
A socially distanced visit and gift drop comes after a phone check-in revealed that the impacts of COVID-19 have left many Fijian families in desperate need of support.
The recent shut-down of Makassar city has left many informal settlement residents unable to leave their homes to go to work. The RISE Indonesia team reached out to help.
With big group gatherings on hold, the next best thing we can do is check in from a distance. We are contacting the Fiji households taking part in RISE to see how they are coping, and what they need.
RISE is working in partnership with UN-Habitat and Fiji Government agencies to provide rapid response support to help alleviate the impacts of COVID-19 on informal settlement households.
We are adapting how we deliver RISE during this challenging time.
