Corona update: Sabah, Malaysia

Noria Majaman is only allowed to leave her home for the most urgent purchases: "When I run out of food, I can go to the nearby store with Mask and buy necessary things."

It is now very difficult for people affected by poverty, Noria Majaman expresses her concern: "The people who live from hand to mouth now have it twice as hard. The pandemic has multiple implications for them: They have no jobs, no income, no food, and in the process they become hopeless and desperate."

Support for the poorest

In Sabah in the north of the island of Borneo, Malaysia's poorest province, many families are in this situation, writes Noria Majaman. It is therefore gratifying that political parties are now working together and supporting the people with a food package.

Mission 21's partner churches in Sabah also help people who are affected by poverty. That is why we are now particularly dependent on donations to support our partners on the ground.
