Expat Provides Free Food To Bali Locals That Can’t Afford To Eat

Share The Article

An expat villa owner in Bali is giving back to the community he loves during the COVID-19 outbreak by offering free food to Bali locals who can’t afford to eat.  

Gordon Andersen originally from New Zealand is the owner of Aquarius Villa (formerly Dawas Villas) in Canggu. As many accommodation providers close their doors and lay off employees, Andersen is doing the complete opposite. 

In an interview with The Bali Sun, Andersen explained that he was worried the people of Bali may not receive any help from the Indonesian government and wanted to help. 

“I have chosen to give everything I have until I run out,” he said.

Andersen is offering free lunch to those in need daily from 12:00 pm until 3:00 pm at the Aquarius Villa in Canggu. Bali locals are able to stop by for a friendly hello and a warm meal to help them get through this hard time.
