ACTNews, TASIKMALAYA - Yeni believes there is always hope. Last October, Azwa Ramadani, Yeni's daughter who suffered from a digestive organ disorder, began receiving medical assistance from Aksi Cepat Tanggap Tasikmalaya’s Mobile Social Rescue program. Azwa underwent surgery to treat her illness at Margono Soekarjo Hospital. Now, Azwa is fully healed.

After the successful medical assistance for Azwa, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Tasikmalaya provided another assistance to Yeni by giving cooking utensils and raw materials for Yeni’s tofu cracker production, Wednesday (2/11/2021).

“Ms Yeni’s tofu cracker business started small. It grew over time, and now she needs more adequate cooking utensils. Hence, we provided her with new cooking utensils and raw materials to further support her business. So far, her business has been hampered by the lack of capital,” said Fauzi Ridwan from the ACT Tasikmalaya Program Department.

Besides tofu crackers, Yeni also produces ladu, a traditional West Javanese food made from sticky rice. Although the production capacity is still small, it is at least enough to make ends meet.

"We are very grateful. After helping us with my daughter’s treatments, now the generous donors helped us again by providing business assistance. We are truly grateful, ”said Yeni, touched. []
