Yudana explained that this program was initiated to help local small businesses that haven’t received previous financial assistance from the government. He also ensured that the program was distributed to the right people by handing it out directly. “In accordance with the President’s instruction, this cash assistance has to be distributed directly to the people and should not be transferred through the banks.” Colonel Yudana added.

Yudana also instructed the operators to take the picture of each receiver as part of a report for the central government. “We also asked each of them to count the money before leaving the location to make sure that they receive the correct amount of cash.” Yudana concluded. Some of the local people who received the cash support were feeling grateful as many of them have been financially struggling due to the current crisis in Bali.

It's about time that the Balinese folks are receiving some kind of monetary aid. Better late than never.

@Randy I told you over well over 12 months ago that the Balinese people had received nothing from the government in the way of financial support and still 20 months into this pandemic still nothing. We have been sending money each month to our Balinese friends to keep them alive because they both lost their jobs at the start of the pandemic March 2020. There has been lots of talk by politicians but talk doesn’t put food on the table and this whole crisis has been so badly handled it’s disgraceful.
