Where to make Donation

One of the suggestions that can make Jakarta be free from beggars is to inform people where they can donate money, food or goods, such as to institutions, foundations, orphanage houses, political parties, NGOs, etc. that provide food and basic health care services to beggars and those who are in need.

Beggars shall know where to go to get the free food and health care assistance just to survive for the day. If they want to get small money, the foundation may offer to the beggars to do certain services (physical or non-physical one for disable people) before collecting the money.

On the other side, people shall also be aware that there are places available for the needy to get necessary assistance, and hence they will not feel bad at all when they do not give small money to the beggars on the street.

Signs shall be put in every traffic lights in Jakarta, informing both beggars and motorists, that those places are available, and hence there is no reason for motorist to support beggars on the street, and there is no reason for beggars to be on the street either.

Let's share with the world where you donate your money or other stuffs, detail with bank account or address, and brief explanation as to why you trust the institution or foundation.

Your input will be added to the list below, by mentioning your name with link to your blog as the source of the information.

  3. jangankan d indonesia pak ...skrg di jerman aja dah ada sekumpulan orang2 dr kroatia yg sengaja membentuk perkumpulan pengemis ...
    mengingat hasil mengemis terkadang jauh lebih besar dibanding harus bekerja kasar dijerman sana

  4. Ditempat dimana saya tinggal, disetiap kota atau desa pasti ada "Food Bank" nya yg biasanya dikelola oleh "Salvation Army" atau organisasi2 lainnya.
    Disetiap grocery store ada dus besar untuk food bank donation.....lalu orang2 ber volunteer masak atau membungkus makanan2 kering...dan membagikan ke orang2 miskin/street people.
    dan biasanya food bank buka pas lunch dan dinner.
    Orang2 bisa makan minum sepuasnya disitu. Tentu saja orang miskin.
    Makanan nya bagus looh..(saya pernah volunteer dulu)
