ACT Madiun with FOZ East Java Donate Eggs in Magetan

To deal with the impact of falling egg prices, ACT and members of FOZ East Java bought eggs from farmers. The benefits of this action were not only felt by farmers but also beneficiaries who got free eggs.

ACTNews, MAGETAN –The price of eggs that had dropped had a huge impact on the egg farmers in various regions, including in Magetan. The low selling price is not worth the cost they have spent. Many egg farmers suffer losses.

To overcome this condition, the East Java Zakat Forum, where Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) is involved, bought up two tons of eggs from farmers in Magetan. The team distributed these eggs to residents in need in Magetan.

Magetan Regent Suprawoto attended the event in collaboration with the Livestock and Fisheries Agency.

“Hopefully, this activity can ease the burden on farmers who are currently still having a difficult time selling eggs. We hope that this good activity will be able to provide great benefits for its beneficiaries," said Branch Manager of ACT Madiun Adi Wibowo, Friday (10/8/2021).

A good response also came from the beneficiaries. Laminem was one of them. She received a package of chicken eggs amid low income.

Alhamdulillah,  I am so happy,” said a woman whose husband works as a parking guard at the market.[]
