1. CCK: Joining UWW Food Security Initiative for 3 Southeast Asian Countries affected by the Pandemic
In partnership with United Way Worldwide, CCK is supporting Southeast Asian communities to address COVID-19 triggered food security issue. This project will benefit communities in Indonesia, Vietnam, and Myanmar with home delivered meals and address food security caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. CCK realizes these countries are experiencing an unparalleled impact from the virus due to the lack of public and private medical services and welfare infrastructure. CCK saw the needs and agreed to donate USD 100,000 through United Way Worldwide and give top priority to prevent hunger among children and women in low-income areas of the three countries.

“Focusing on providing prompt and effective assistance in the face of national crisis”

COVID-19 was the first social crisis that affected the entire nation, and I felt I had an extra responsibility when discussing the allocation plan. We created a special task forces to ensure the rapid response and we communicated with those in the field to establish allocation criteria and areas for assistance. We wanted to make sure the funds are allocated to the areas most needed. As we have a strong network with social welfare organizations from various projects in the past, we were able to address a diverse range of social needs, including housing, the environment, medical services and employment. Now is the time to look at the bigger picture and establish a new support system aims at creating “a safer society” considering the changes in our post-coronavirus society. We will continue to listen to the people working on the frontline, act swiftly, be different from the government, and value cooperation.
One. Prioritizing Urgent Areas
Since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, CCK has been actively communicating with social welfare institutions, associations and facilities and held meetings with them to understand the difficulties they face and identify welfare “blind spots.” The Fund Allocation Subcommittees of CCK headquarters and 17 local branches gathered together to set the criteria and priorities for support. There are four areas identified as priorities: 1. Livelihood support for families in crisis, 2. Support for medical staff, patients, quarantined individuals, and volunteers, 3. Disinfection and sanitation control, and 4. Support in welfare service gaps.

Two. Covering All Areas in Need
COVID-19 has caused a social crisis with serious repercussions for the entire nation. To address this national and all-encompassing crisis, CCK has provided a flexible and multi-faceted support. For instance, CCK expanded its scope of project areas, which used to focus on social welfare services only, to providing medical equipment and supplies to support patients’ treatments and healthcare providers, and providing disinfection equipment for local communities. Limits on funds provide for individuals have also increased.

Three. In a Prompt Manner
Knowing the need for urgent and immediate response to this infectious disease, CCK sought to allocate funding to projects promptly. Based on the cooperative system with our allocation partners, who have expertise in providing assistance simultaneously across the country, efforts were made to resolve hardships in the field as quickly as possible by simplifying application procedures and required documentation and deliberating through an online system in real time.
