ACTNews, BOGOR - Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) dispatched five of its humanitarian vehicles to help the earthquake victims in West Sulawesi on Monday (1/18/2021) at ACT’s Waqf Distribution Center (WDC) in Gunung Sindur, Bogor Regency, West Java.

"The vehicles that we are sending to West Sulawesi are the Humanity Food Truck, Humanity Rice Truck, Humanity Water Truck, Pre-Hospital Ambulance, as well as the double cabin pickup truck that will assist of earthquake-hit brothers and sisters in Mamuju and Majene, Insha Allah," said ACT Program Manager Eka Setiawaty.

Eka hoped that these vehicles that have been regularly deployed to disaster-hit areas can meet the needs of the survivors who are still in need of a helping hand. "Insha Allah, we will optimize these humanitarian vehicles to help the community, for example, by providing meal packages through the Humanity Food Truck and delivering clean water using the Humanity Water Truck. As we know, there has been a lack of clean water because the water pipes have been damaged by the earthquake,” explained Eka.

ACT also sent aid packages through some of its branch offices, including 10 trucks that carry 500 tons of Waqf Rice from ACT Karawang Branch Office that will be distributed to disaster victims and the local poor communities. Ten trucks containing 70 tons of aid packages will also depart from the ACT South Sulawesi Branch Office.

The humanitarian vehicles will stay in West Sulawesi for as long as they are needed. ACT will maximize the aid distribution during the emergency phase. Eka hoped that the contribution from the generous benefactors can keep supporting the disaster victims amid their difficult situation.

"This is an expression of our support so that they can recover and life a normal life again. All their needs, especially food, can be fulfilled in this emergency period. If you wish to contribute, you can do so by visiting Indonesia Dermawan website. The more people who help, Insha Allah, the faster their recovery will be,” said Eka. []
