ACTNews,  SOUTH TANGERANG – Global Zakat-ACT delivered zakat ul-fitr from benefactors to various regions in Indonesia, one of which was for residents in Sawah Lama Village, Ciputat District, South Tangerang, on Wednesday (5/12/2021).

In the afternoon, the Zakat ul-fitr from the benefactors was distributed to the beneficiaries. "They are part of the eight asnaf (a party that is eligible to receive Zakat), namely widows and orphans. "We distributed the Zakat ul-fitr door-to-door while keeping in touch with the beneficiaries,” said Hasan Hariri from the Global Zakat-ACT Community Relief Distribution Team.

Hariri said there was a sick beneficiary who could not stand up, so the team had to go into her house to give zakat ul-fitr in the form of rice. “She was very happy and prayed for the benefactors and the team who came,” he added.

Hariri hoped the generous mandate could help them meet their food needs on Eid.

This Ramadan 1442 AH, zakat ul-fitr from Global Zakat-ACT had delivered to beneficiaries in South Tangerang City, Pangkep Regency, Agam, Bukittinggi, Tasikmalaya, the Sukabumi municipality and regency, Cirebon, Pangkalpinang City, Kuningan, Pekalongan, Madiun, West Bandung, Purwokerto, Makassar, and Palu.[]
