ACTNews, TASIKMALAYA - The road near Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Tasikmalaya’s office on Jalan Ir. H. Djuanda, Cipedes, Tasikmalaya was crowded. People were passing by, a usual scene towards the call of prayer. A lot of people went outside to buy meals for iftar, or just stroll around to ngabuburit--a local term for spending time outside to wait for the call of prayer for Maghrib.
ACT Tasikmalaya Team, Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia, and several local communities of Tasikmalaya gathered on the streets. They were outside to provide iftar packages for the passing vehicles in front of the ACT Tasikmalaya’s office. “To provide meals for the passers-by is one of the programs of ACT Tasikmalaya,” said Fauzi of Program Team of ACT Tasikmalaya on Tuesday (5/14).
Fauzi added that this program aims to educate the locals to share with others, especially during Ramadan. “We have to make use of Ramadan to improve our deen,” said Fauzi
Other than providing food, ACT Tasikmalaya also deployed Humanity Food Van in this Ramadan. The van, which was transformed into a food truck, will roam Tasikmalaya to provide iftar meals.
Previously, Humanity Food Fan also roamed the other roads of Indonesia, such as Medan. Last year, the van reached several villages affected by the Mount Sinabung Eruption in Karo Regency. ACT North Sumatra Team and the locals from Sinabung broke their fast together with the various food provided by Humanity Food Van, with Sinabung mountain before their eyes.
