ACTNews, BOGOR REGENCY – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) and Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia of Bogor Branch provided food aid in the form of free Waqf Rice for hundreds of residents who are currently undergoing self-quarantine in the District of Rancabungur, Bogor Regency, Monday (2/21/2022).

The ACT Bogor Branch symbolically handed over the free rice assistance to the District Leadership Coordination Forum (Forkopimcam) which was represented by the Head of the Rancabungur District Dita Aprillia. The event that was held in the Baiturrahman Grand Mosque was also attended by representatives from the Kemang Koramil and Rancabungur Police.

Dita said that currently there was an increase in COVID-19 cases. A total of 227 cases were recorded, and 6 out of 7 villages in Rancabungur District were designated as COVID-19 red zones. "There is only one village designated as an orange zone," added Dita.

Therefore, Dita welcomed the initiative made by ACT to carry out free rice distribution. "Thank you for the good response from ACT, and we will deliver the rice to people who are self-quarantining," said Dita.

Yegi Haryadi, on behalf of the ACT Bogor branch, hoped that this collaboration can continue in the future. "This is not the first time we have held a humanitarian program in Rancabungur District. We have previously distributed staple food and meal packages. We hope that this act of kindness can continue in the future," said Yegi. []
