“Alhamdulillah, the mosque management would like to thank ACT for the takjil packages given to the congregants. Hopefully, our activity will raise public awareness of MSMEs affected by the pandemic,” added Hafiz. This program lasted for five days since Wednesday. Hafiz hoped that in the future, they could hold a similar program.
“Sedekah Modal Takjil Ramadhan program is our commitment to intensify Ramadan Food Alms Movement. We hope with the help of the benefactors, similar programs will also continue to be launched,” hoped Hafiz.
