Your emotional and legal guidance support systems

Presence in: Indonesia
Focus: Criminal Justice, Women's Rights

The COVID-19 pandemic led the Indonesian government to impose regional lockdown in several areas as an effort to reduce the spread of the virus.

This policy requires most people to carry out their duties from home and have impacted many aspects, such as the economy, education, to changes in people’s behavior and daily routines. Increase in social media activities as a way for workers and students to carry out their duties from home also increased the occurrence of cases of cyberbullying.

The vulnerability of domestic violence cases are also increasing due to the implementation of the work from home system. Not only that, the layoffs carried out by a number of companies and resulting in an increase in unemployment also affected the mental condition of the people during the pandemic. The victims of these actions need help, although current conditions do not allow them to go outside of the house. Bullyid is presented to enable them to get help by staying at home still.

Bullyid as a platform that focuses on the protection of victims of bullying and violence, for the rampant mental health cases that occurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bullyid provides free emotional and legal guidance supports through live chat for cyberbullying, physical and mental abuse victims as well as helping people to remove their unwanted intimate pimage/videos that shared online without their consent.
