ACTNews, CIMAHI – The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic results in a severe impact on the livelihoods of many communities. Responding to this, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) has intensified the Free Food Operation (OPG) program. After its launch in Jakarta, Free Food Operation was launched in the city of Cimahi, Tuesday (8/3/2021).

The Acting Mayor of Cimahi Lieutenant Colonel (Ret.) Ngatiyana appreciated the OPG program initiated by ACT. So far, continued Ngatiyana, ACT Cimahi City has always been committed to carrying out social and humanitarian activities for the people of Cimahi City.

"I express my gratitude and highest appreciation to Aksi Cepat Tanggap Cimahi City who has launched the Free Food Operation program to help people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope that it can increase the motivation and innovation and economic recovery in Cimahi City," said Ngatiyana, Tuesday (8/3/2021).

Renno Mahmoeddin as the Regional Head of ACT West Java said ACT's humanitarian programs which were initiated and carried out with elements of the nation were a form of solidarity to strengthen the brotherhood. The inauguration is the first step before the implementation of the action, as a notification to the people of Cimahi City.

“As a first step, before the implementation is carried out, we inaugurated the program to notify the residents of Cimahi City. The staple food and meal package distributions will target residents who are self-isolating. We’ll also send food aid through the Humanity Care line," he said.

ACT Cimahi Branch Manager Sopian says there are three programs that will be implemented in Cimahi City, namely Free Food Operation, Free Meal Operation, and Free Medical Service. These programs are expected to benefit the residents of Cimahi City and its surroundings who are affected by the pandemic.

“The Free Food Operation has been carried out since July. This inauguration is to refresh the public's memory of the existence of a humanitarian program for residents affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in Cimahi City. We hope that the benefits will be wider," he concluded. []
