ACTNews, JAKARTA - On the day of Eid Al-Fitr, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) continued to share happiness with the needy. On Sunday (5/25), ACT’s Humanity Food Truck stopped by at Kampung Muka, Angke Urban Village, Pademangan Subistrict, North Jakarta to distribute 500 meal packages.
"Today we are distributing 500 meal packages to Kampung Muka residents on the day of Eid Al-Fitr. Hopefully, amid the difficulties caused by the global pandemic, they can still be happy, thanks to the support from the benefactors," said Robi, the Action Coordinator, Sunday (5/25).
The meal packages were also delivered to the houses of the beneficiaries to avoid creating crowds. The Kampung Muka residents were very grateful for the meal packages.
"To reach more beneficiaries, we also sent our team to deliver the meal packages to the residents’ houses so as not to cause crowds. Alhamdulillah, the community welcomes our meal distribution today," said Robi.

Marfuah, one of the residents, was grateful for ACT's meal distribution. She worked as a Quran teacher at a local Quran school (TPA). She no longer earns any income due to the outbreak. She relies on aid because there has been no source of income for her.
She was happy because this was not the first time ACT had visited their neighborhood. "Alhamdulillah for the assistance. Recently, ACT gave us rice, and we also received eggs and oil from other benefactors. We are cooking egg curry for Eid," said Marfuah.
Robi hoped ACT can continue supporting Kampung Muka community amid global pandemic because many people have lost their jobs.
"We hope that these humanitarian actions can continue so that we can get through this pandemic together. We hope that the support from the benefactors will also continue to support the community, especially in Kampung Muka," Robi hoped.
