ACTNews, WEST BANDUNG – The prolonged pandemic has had a major impact on people's lives. No exception for those in the West Bandung Regency area. In addition to restricted activities, the local economy has also weakened. The ability to meet needs was reduced, including food.

Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) collaborated with the West Bandung Regency Government to launch a kindness program. ACT launched Humanity Careline and Free Food Operation to provide food for impoverished people and people affected by the pandemic. Generous Friends supported this kindness program.

"Amid a pandemic, we cannot do it alone. The main strength is togetherness and collaboration with all parties,” said West Bandung Regency Regent ad. Interim Hengky Kurniawan, Friday (8/6/2021).

ACT through Free Food Operation distributed Waqf Rice and Waqf Drinking Water to residents of West Bandung Regency. The target beneficiaries were underprivileged residents.

Branch Manager of ACT West Bandung Dody Syachrul Mugni says that Free Food Operation and Humanity Careline programs are a tangible manifestation of handling the impact of the pandemic that ACT has brought to the community. Driven by the generosity of benefactors, this program provides food needs for underprivileged residents in various regions.[]
