ACTNews, BOGOR REGENCY – There is a large public toilet in Bubulak Hamlet in Leuwengkolot Village of Bogor Regency. This public toilet is used by the locals to bathe and to make wudu before going to the mosque.

Recently, the public toilet has been unable to be used. The locals have to draw water from a nearby water source to use it. Sadly, the water source depends on rainwater. Hence, during the dry season, the water source is unreliable, making it difficult for the locals to use it.

“It’s difficult for the congregants to do activities at the mosque such as Islamic classes and prayers. They can’t make ablution at the mosque,” said Nurul Ramadhan from Global Wakaf-ACT.

To solve this problem, Global Wakaf-ACT built one Waqf Well with a depth of more than 30 meters for the residents of Bubulak Hamlet. The construction was finished on Friday (7/18/2021). "We hope that this Waqf Well will be an alternative water source for the local residents' daily activities, whether for drinking, washing , or making ablution," added Nurul.

Global Wakaf-ACT also planted a number of mango and guava trees equipped with biopore holes, and built a goat cage to support the economy of the locals.

The Bubulak residents were very grateful for the assistance from Global Wakaf - ACT. "May Allah reward the good deeds that have been performed by Global Wakaf – ACT and donors who have allotted some of their wealth,” said Wawan, one of the locals. []
