ACTNews, BANDUNG – Implementation of the Java-Bali Emergency Public Activity Restriction Enforcement (PPKM) has started from Saturday (7/3/2021) until the end of July. The regulation aims to curb the spread of Covid-19, which has a major impact on people's lives, especially in the economy that affects the ability to fulfill food. Apart from the economic sector, social life, religion, culture, and education have also changed.

Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) with Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) Bandung volunteers provided food needs through Free Food Operation, Tuesday (7/6/2021). In the spirit of Save the Nation from the pandemic, these food packages were delivered directly to people's homes to prevent crowds.

Free Food Operation delivered Waqf Rice and Waqf Drinking Water, which are products from community waqf fund management of Global Wakaf-ACT. One of the distribution locations was in Cibadak Village, Bandung Kulon District, Bandung. There, residents enthusiastically welcomed this kindness.

On behalf of the residents, the Head of RT also expressed his gratitude for this food aid. He said that this assistance was valuable, especially with the restrictions on activities that have a major impact on the lives of residents.

Dede Deliana from MRI Bandung team says Free Food Operations will continue to expand and reach more residents. He hopes that no residents will starve due to activity restrictions during this pandemic.

"This effort will continue to help the community," he said.
