The food packages from the benefactors contained rice, cooking oil, onions, potatoes, salt, paper powder, turmeric, and sugar.

One of the beneficiaries, Noor said, the assistance she received can lighten her family’s economic burden. She’s glad since the food assistance can fulfill her family’s food needs during Ramadan.

“We are very happy to receive this assistance. Hopefully, the people who helped us can get an abundant amount of sustenance and continue to help more people in need,” said Noor.

Firdaus Guritno from the Global Humanity Response - Aksi Cepat Tanggap team reported, thousands of aid packages were the result of Indonesian people’s generosity. The assistance was gathered gradually to be distributed this Ramadan. “ACT still continues to deliver assistance to the Rohingyas this Ramadan. Inshaa Allah, through the support of Generous Benefactors, the assistance will still be distributed to the Rohingyas until the Eid Al-Fitr,” said Firdaus.[]
