ACTNews, TASIKMALAYA – Towards the end of October, Covid-19 was still endemic in Indonesia. Activities are not yet normal, and the economy has not recovered even though people have started to be active. However, good action cannot stop. Generosity should not be reduced on various occasions.

Based on this situation, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) r to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Tasikmalaya City, held a distribution of a thousand praying robes for the elderly. ACT Tasikmalaya team and 12 other communities distributed these praying robes to various sub-districts in Tasikmalaya City.

Fauzi Ridwan from the ACT Tasikmalaya Program Team said, before distributing the assistance, the communities and ACT team conducted an assessment to determine the beneficiaries. Thus, this assistance was right on target and had such great benefits.

"This assistance is a tangible manifestation of generosity at the moment of the 20th Anniversary of Tasikmalaya City," explained Fauzi, Wednesday (10/20/2021).

The benefits of this act of kindness were not only felt by the elderly but also by the craftsmen and embroidery centers that produce praying robes. During the pandemic, they experienced a decrease in income, so with the help of this kindness action, they were able to run their business again.

Pemuda Penggerak Kota Tasik (Pager Asik), one of the communities that support this action, kindly welcomed the collaboration. Moreover, the Anniversary of Tasikmalaya City and the kindness action were also to commemorate the Birthday of the Prophet Muhammad. Hence, it was special.[]
