ACTNews, SURABAYA — The sinking of the KRI Nanggala-402 in the North Sea of Bali a while ago is a sorrow for the nation. The fallen sailors were the nation’s best patriots who have dedicated their entire life to maintaining the integrity of the Republic of Indonesia.

The Chairman of ACT’s Supervisory Board and the President of Global Islamic Philanthropy (GIP) Ahyudin, said as a form of national empathy and concern for KRI Nanggala-402, ACT provided honorary assistance to the families of fallen patriots. On Sunday (5/2/2021), the given assistance was also a form of national support for the struggle of the patriots.

“As a symbol of respect and love for the nation’s children because this is not only a calamity for the Indonesian military, but also for the entire nation. Respect and best regards to all families,” said Ahyudin.

Ahyudin continued, the fallen patriots had fought to the death. It was reasonable that the nation called them heroes for their dedication to the nations and state. “They are heroes, pious, and good people, Insha Allah, for their dedication to their country and nation, they will enter His paradise,” he explained.

The assistance provided is in the form of bereavement money of IDR 10 million per family, living cost of IDR 5 million per month for 12 months, and scholarships for The sailors' orphans until they enter the university. The assistance was given by ACT in collaboration with the East Java Provincial Government. This was because the majority of the fallen patriots are East Javanese.

The Governor of East Java, Khofifah Indar Parawansa attended the handover ceremony and thanked ACT for the appreciation for the sailors of KRI Nanggala-402. According to Khofifah, the assistance was a form of national awareness and cooperation in helping the families of the fallen patriots.
