ACTNews, JAKARTA – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) through Global Wakaf-ACT distributed 120 tons of Waqf Rice and 7,000 boxes of Waqf Drinking Water to people in need.
There were 3,261 boxes of Waqf Cup Drinking Water and 3,759 boxes of Waqf Bottle Drinking Water. The distribution was carried out to 1,367 areas in Jabodetabek.
On Sunday (8/1/2021), Global Wakaf-ACT collaborated with several elements of society, including the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), government agencies, and community organizations, to distribute the assistance.
ACT President Ibnu Khajar explains that this program is one of the efforts made to reduce hunger amid the Covid-19 pandemic. It is undeniable there are still many Indonesians who have difficulty finding food.
"By carrying the spirit of Indonesian Solidarity in Emergency, we feel that this activity restriction should not reduce solidarity at all. We must create a culture of togetherness. We have to help each other,” said Ibnu.
Operations Manager of Waqf Distribution Center Pungki Martha Kusuma explains Waqf Rice and Waqf Drinking Water are managed at Waqf Distribution Center, which is the intermediary for the alms of the benefactors. Through Waqf Distribution Center, the best charity from benefactors is managed and delivered to the beneficiaries. ACT's humanitarian vehicles help to distribute assistance.
There are two main Waqf Distribution Centers managed by Global Wakaf-ACT, namely in Gunung Putri, Bogor, and Jombang, East Java. These two places are the main of the National Waqf Distribution Center and can accommodate 1,000 tons of aid. The two central Waqf Distribution Centers are supported by 96 units of Waqf Distribution Centers located in various regions," said Pungki. He hopes that WDC will be more massive and help more underprivileged communities throughout Indonesia.
