ACTNews, YOGYAKARTA – To solve humanitarian problems that occurred during the pandemic era, ACT cannot work by itself. An epic collaboration is required to come up with the best solution for everyone.

Departing from this spirit, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) is ready to establish an epic humanitarian collaboration with Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University (UIN). In mid-August, ACT had the opportunity to pay a visit to meet the Rector of UIN Sunan Kalijaga, Al Makin, and discuss the situation in Indonesia and abroad.

“We are now in the interdependent era where we must collaborate with each other to develop quickly,” said Al Makin.

On the occasion, the Regional Head of ACT Central Java-DIY, Awal Purnama, Sub-Regional DIY, Zainul Muttaqin, and Branch Manager of ACT Yogyakarta, Nur Aries Shoim, participated in the discussion. In his presentation, Aries said that the current issues including food, education, and MSMEs empowerment are some of ACT's focuses. Especially during the pandemic that has a great impact on people's lives.

“Apart from food issue, MSME owners also become ACT’s concern. Through various programs which also involve many parties, it is hoped that those programs can help everyone from the abyss of suffering. To make it happen, strong cooperation and mutual collaboration are of course required,” said Aries.

The meeting between ACT and Sunan Kalijaga State Islamic University will be continued with a painting auction next September.[]
