Part of the profit of the batik masks is donated in food to people who need it in Bogor (Java, Indonesia). We believe that we are well taken care of in the Netherlands and want to contribute to our heritage. e are in close contact with a local who we know before she emigrated to Bogor from Amsterdam a few years ago.
She puts together bags with essential food, a so called sembako bag. These bags are filled with essential needs like rice, oil, sugar, canned fish and other
basic food available. Everything is bought local at small warungs and at different warungs so we are able to divide the money equally. The bags used are recycled spin bound and divided amongst people who need it. We have donated already 50 bags and we will continue as long as possible and safe.
