ACTNews, WEST BANDUNG – In celebrating its 76th Anniversary, the Indonesian National Armed Forces (TNI) collaborated with Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) to carry out a social service event in Pusdikif, Cipatat District, West Bandung Regency, Tuesday (10/5/2021).
In the anniversary celebration event on the theme of “Unite, Fight, and We Will Definitely Win”, a total of three tons of rice and Humanity Food Truck were provided for the service. At least 1,000 meal packages were also served for the veterans, army widows, farmers, and orphans in the event.
Deputy Commander of Pussenif, Major General Muhammad Daniel Cardin thanked ACT for the collaboration on this TNI’s anniversary despite the pandemic limitation. "However, it is hoped that this commemoration will not reduce the values of TNI’s anniversary spirit," said Major General Daniel.
President of ACT, Ibnu Khajar, expressed his appreciation for the arranged theme in the celebration of TNI’s anniversary. “We need to unite and keep fighting during this pandemic. We have to be a strong nation and trained to face any problems in the nation. Insha Allah, ACT and Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) will proudly participate in TNI activities including this activity," said Ibnu.
For the past four years, ACT has accompanied TNI in celebrating its anniversary through various programs. In 2019, ACT, MRI, and TNI carried out a garbage cleaning program and thousands of meal package distribution with Humanity Food Truck on the riverbank of Rancamanyar Village, Baleendah District, Bandung Regency.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, ACT and TNI also strive to provide various assistance such as when the Indonesian Air Forces contributed to the vaccination program and 1.5 tons of Waqf Rice distribution to the community. In addition, a program to assist orphans whose parents died from the Covid-19 was also carried out by providing scholarship, financial, and food package assistance.
