ACTNews, SOUTH JAKARTA – The Covid-19 pandemic has increased the number of impoverished people in Indonesia. The lower-middle-class economy is depressed, business is quiet, and public transport passengers are also reduced. Many people find it burdensome to meet their food needs. To solve this problem, Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) held an Hunger Operation (OOL) in Lenteng Agung, South Jakarta, Wednesday (7/28/2021).

Head of Volunteer South Jakarta M. Lukman said MRI South Jakarta, through Hunger Operation (OOL), distributed hundreds of ready-to-eat meals to the poor, public transportation drivers, online motorcycle taxi drivers, and sellers.

“MRI’s Hunger Operation targets the poor and informal workers in the Lenteng Agung district and around the banks of the Ciliwung River as beneficiaries," said Lukman, Wednesday (7/28/2021).

Lukman continued, Hunger Operation (OOL) is a program initiated by ACT and MRI to distribute ready-to-eat meals to residents affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. This program aims to prevent people from starving during the difficult times of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Let's help each other, even if it's just a spoon of rice. For them, it is very valuable,” concluded Lukman.
