ACTNews, TASIKMALAYA – The massive generosity that have been shown by many communities following the series of disasters that hit Indonesia has inspired the residents of Tasikmalaya to contribute. Five tons of rice and other basic supplies were gathered from Tasikmalaya and were delivered to the Waqf Distribution Center in Gunung Sindur, Bogor Regency. These aid packages were sent to the beneficiaries through the Humanitarian Ship for West Sulawesi on Wednesday (1/27/2021) and will also be sent to South Kalimantan through the Humanitarian Ship for South Kalimantan on Saturday (30/1/2021).

ACT Tasikmalaya Branch Manager Taufik Perdana said that this aid was the result of the generosity of the Tasikmalaya residents collected in less than a week. "As we know, the impact of the disaster that occurred, especially in West Sulawesi, was tremendous. Alhamdulillah, collaborating with partnering communities, corporate mosques, students and others, were able to collect five tons of aid that was collected in less than a week. This shows that the people of Tasikmalaya and its surroundings are very generous," said Taufik, Monday (1/25/2021).

This aid truck was officially dispatched on Monday, witnessed by partners who have supported the Humanitarian Ship program by providing the aid packages to be sent to the disaster victims.

Zaim Kamil, a representative from JNE Tasikmalaya, who has also contributed in providing the aid packages, expressed his gratefulness. "Alhamdulillah, we can participate to help our fellow countrymen through the Humanitarian Ship program by ACT. Hopefully, what we have donated can be useful for those in need," he said.
