ACTNews, PALU CITY – Three years have passed since the devastating earthquake, liquefaction, and tsunami hit the Palu area and several regencies around it. Currently, disaster survivors are trying to rebuild their lives despite the uncertainty.

Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), which has been involved in handling the big disaster since the day it happened, has launched various long-term humanitarian programs. One of them is Cheap Food Operation which was recently launched. Last Friday (28/10/2021), ACT held a Cheap Food Operation in Kabonena Village, Ulujadi District, supported by philanthropists and volunteers from Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia.

"Alhamdulillah, on this blessed Friday, we can sell cheap and quality food packages. This Cheap Food Operation is a form of our endeavor to assist disaster survivors who still find it difficult to meet their daily food needs," explained Mustafa from ACT Palu Program Team.

The Cheap Food Operation provided food packages in the form of 5 kilograms of rice, 1 liter of cooking oil, 1 kilogram of sugar, one box of tea bags, 225 milliliters of sweet soy sauce, and canned fish. Disaster survivors could take the food home for only half the price.

Mustafa added ACT Palu team prepared dozens of food packages for the survivors. “Insha Allah, this Cheap Food Operation will continue and provide benefits for the survivors. We ask for prayers and support from benefactors," he said.
