Majdi: Independence during Pandemic Means Strengthening Each Other

During the Covid-19 pandemic, everyone will be weak if they are alone. However, if we strengthen each other, then we can face all problems amid a pandemic. This is the meaning of independence today.

ACTNews, BELU – The 76th Indonesian Independence Day was interpreted differently by Majdi, an honorary teacher at the national border. In previous years, independence was interpreted as carrying out various productive and positive activities. This year, the meaning of independence is to work together in things that are more useful for Indonesia.

Majdi said, amid the Covid-19 pandemic that is getting worse in Indonesia, all citizens must strengthen each other. For Majdi, in current conditions, people will be weak if they stand alone. However, Majdi believes that we can support and help each other to face this pandemic.

“We must strengthen and help each other,” said Majdi to ACTNews, Monday (8/16/2021).

Majdi added that the meaning of independence today is not what the previous nation's fighters have achieved, but something that must be maintained to maintain the integrity of the Republic of Indonesia so that it always exists.

For Majdi, ACT program is a movement to strengthen each other. “Together with ACT Save the Nation from the Pandemic is real and inspiring. ACT's programs and movements strengthen us to continue to survive," he explained.

Majdi also expressed his gratitude for the programs carried out by ACT on the outskirts of Indonesia, Atambua, Belu, East Nusa Tenggara, which is directly adjacent to East Timor. On the 76th Indonesian Independence Day, Majdi hopes that ACT will continue to inspire and strengthen fellow countrymen who are currently experiencing difficulties.[]
