Hello, my name is Mohammad T. I was born on October 10, 1996, in Karang Asem-Bali. Now I live in Kupang City, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia, following parents who sell. I want to tell the atmosphere of my family life after coronavirus became a plague.
My family consists of a father, mother and 1 younger sister, and 1 younger brother. My mother and father, every day sell chicken satay, from 5 pm to 9 pm. But the routine of my father’s selling activities changed. My father could not sell since COVID-19. Since March 25, we have just stayed at home. My father lost the idea to do anything, in order to get income to sustain life. Slowly my father’s savings have diminished and are now completely used up. I am ashamed as a boy who is 24 years old, there is no job.
Finally, with a motorcycle capital, I signed up to be a delivery person for food/gofood at the company Goos. After all the requirements were met, I officially became a food delivery man on March 29. I don’t have much income because the queue of food around the city of Kupang paid varies between 1 dollar to 2 dollars. But I thank God, in one day I can get 3 dollars to 5 dollars. This result is quite helpful for buying rice and other necessities. Even so, our lives are difficult, because other needs such as medicine, soap, and herbs are not enough. Sometimes I am thinking of giving up on life, but we are not ready to die.
