ACTNews, BOGOR – Being held simultaneously, Food Alms Gathering and Free Food Operation in Bogor benefitted around 2,000 beneficiaries. Food Alms Gathering Points at 11 locations across Bogor City and Regency were activated on Friday (12/11).
"Alhamdulillah, the beneficiaries, donors and activists of the Food Alms Gathering program were happy to participate. This week, the Food Alms Gathering Points were filled with 1,500 meal packages from local Bogor benefactors. Besides the Food Alms Gathering Points, food aid was also distributed through the Free Food Operation to various locations across Bogor City,” said Wahyudi from the Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) Bogor Program Department.
The food packages were distributed by the volunteers to informal workers, scavengers, underprivileged people, widows, the elderly, and needy orphans. "Alhamdulillah, we hope that the food aid can lighten their burden as they work in the streets,” said Wahyudi.
Iis, a local banana chip peddler, was very grateful for the food aid from which she and her children benefitted. "The food packages distributed by Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) and Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia through the Bogor Food Alms Gathering Points every Friday become a blessing that benefits many. Friday has become even more blessed thanks to this regular program,” Wahyudi said.
To further spread its massive benefits, Wahyudi is inviting benefactors to continue to participate in this program. "We hope that the Food Alms Gathering program will provide as much blessing as possible to the beneficiaries, as well as the benefactors and all of those involved. We are inviting philanthropists to support this program by visiting the Indonesia Dermawan Website or donating through our BNI Syariah account at 6600000981 in the name of Aksi Cepat Tanggap Foundation," Wahyudi asked.
