ACTNews, GRESIK – The orphans have a special place in Islam. They are mentioned 23 times in the Quran including 8 in singular form, 14 in plural, and 1 in a dual (mutsanna) form.
Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) and Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) strive to prosper the lives of orphans through various programs including Free Food Operation. This time, the action was carried out in Gresik, East Java, Sunday (10/10/2021).
Muhammad Nur Almasyah Pratama (13) who is familiar as Alam, is an orphan who received Free Food Operation. Alam is now supported by only his mother by peddling bananas and sweet potatoes.
There was also Nadia Jamiatu Shofa (11) who received assistance from Free Food Operation. Nadia lives with her mother in Prupuh Village, Panceng District, Gresik. Nadia’s school is supported by her mother who works as a fish catcher in a fish pond with IDR 500 thousand income.
“Alhamdulillah, this is part of our effort to prosper the orphans in Gresik. Their mothers are very grateful for the assistance from Free Food Operation as they can finally meet their food needs properly,” said Head of Marketing of ACT Gresik, Muhammad Rusta Afandi.
Rustam added that Free Food Operation could be carried out thanks to the benefactors’ alms. “We are very grateful for the best alms given by Generous Benefactors. Insha Allah, it can be our field or reward and get closer to Prophet Muhammad later in the heaven,” Afandi concluded.
