Transwoman Mama Atha could hardly get any makeup jobs after the coronavirus hit Jakarta in May. She realized that many other transwomen who worked in the informal sector also experienced the same situation and found it hard to access social aid due to stigma.

To help fellow transwomen to get by, Mama Atha set up a public kitchen in her house in Jakarta which provides meals and grocery packages for 70 transwomen. The aid program is supported by Sanggar Teater Seroja and Queer Language Club (QLC) Jakarta.
