ACTNews, BOGOR – This Ramadan is the second Ramadan in the pandemic. Though the pandemic has been going on for more than a year, and people have entered a "new normal" phase, but life has not gone back to normal. There are still restrictions everywhere, and people’s activities aren't as free as they used to be.

Sumiyati, a vegetable seller in Parung Market, Bogor Regency, is among those affected by the pandemic. She admitted that her income has decreased. On the other hand, she can't stop selling because she has to support her five children.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic, my sales have decreased a lot,” said Sumiyati when she was visited by Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) team in the Parung Market, Thursday (04/29/2021) before dawn.

Sumiyati starts to work early in the morning at Parung Market. In Ramadan, she has her suhoor in the market without her family. However, on that Thursday, Sumiyati received a meal package from Humanity Food truck who came to Parung Market to hand over free suhoor meals.

“Thank you to people who have given these meals. May Allah bless them and facilitate all your affairs,” hoped Sumiyati.

Meal packages from the Humanity Food Truck which were distributed in Parung Market were provided for the people who work there even before dawn. The main beneficiaries are sellers, parking attendants, and everyone doing their activities in the market.

“This is the fruit of people’s generosity,” said Ihza the MRI Bogor volunteer who took part in the suhoor distribution.[]
