Sanitation Package Distribution in Eight Traditional Markets

Sanitation Package Distribution in Eight Traditional Markets

Over the past two weeks, starting from 27 May to 9 June, we have distributed sanitation packages in eight traditional markets in the Sukawati sub-district, Bali. This is part of our campaign to contain the spread of COVID-19 through clean and healthy behavior practices. The markets are Sukawati (Sukawati village), Pudak (Batubulan village), Negari (Central Singapadu village), Kebon (Singapadu village), Silakarang (Singapadu Kaler village), Dharma (Batubulan village), Timbul (Ketewel village), Bulan (Batubulan village).

All the markets are considered as high-risk spots as they are all crowded. In every market, the number of sellers alone is varied from 20 to 900s people every day. The restriction of market opening hours, as part of the COVID-19 protocol conducted by the government since last March, has made this market increasingly crowded.

To sellers and buyers, we distributed masks, vitamins, and some educational media related to clean-healthy behavior and COVID-19. As for the market management, we donated hand sanitizers, thermometer, mask, and disinfectant liquid complete with the sprayers. It is to support them in carrying out market sanitation activities regularly to ensure that the market remains a clean and healthy place.
