Today, May 15th, 2020, the Ecology Foundation holds an action to distribute food items to the coastal communities of Air Glubi Village, Bintan Pesisir District, Bintan Regency. The COVID-19 pandemic is still sweeping Indonesia. Not only health problems, the COVID-19 pandemic also caused socio-economic impacts that are felt by almost all walks of life including the coast of Bintan Island. Not a few people who have to lose their jobs because of this outbreak. At times like this, social care for others is needed especially to help the affected communities.

 

Most of the coastal community professions in Air Glubi Village are Fishermen. Both the main fishermen and fishing workers vessels around the village. Their daily income depends on fishing activities at sea. With the pandemic condition the intensity of activities at sea is reduced and also the selling price of fish catches decreases due to the reduced export sales of fish collectors in the coastal sub-district of bintan and east bintan sub-district to Singapore and Malaysia, the main object of marketing of the fishermen’s catch in the Bintan Regency.
