ACTNews, LUMAJANG REGENCY – Before the eruption of Mount Semeru, Misman (44) used to sell meatball soup using his cart. His business was running quite smoothly, and he was able to make ends meet and even buy a house.

Unfortunately, the volcanic eruption that occurred in early December has destroyed his house and many of his belongings. "I immediately ran to safety. I didn’t think about my house and belongings,” said Misman, Tuesday (1/4/2022).

He was thankful to be alive and well although he lost many of his belongings. He returned home only to find it decimated. In addition, his cart that was his source of livelihood was also badly damaged.

To help ease Misman’s difficulties, Global Wakaf – ACT provides a cart for him through the Productive Business Waqf program. Hopefully, this new cart can help him get back on his feet.

Insha Allah, I will use this cart to peddle meatball soup again. I will strive to rebuild my life,” said Misman, smiling as he received the assistance. []
