ACTNews, MAMUJU - Food is paramount in disaster-hit areas. It takes quite a long time for the disaster victims to resume their normal life after a natural disaster happened. It is often difficult for them to cook their own meals because food supplies often become scarce.
After the earthquake that occurred in Mamuju and Majene, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) has continually provided meal packages for the earthquake survivors. The food is cooked in ACT’s public kitchen at the Central Humanitarian Post in Mamuju. Thousands of servings were cooked in this place.
Coordinator of ACT’s main humanitarian post in Mamuju Lukman Solehudin, said that meal packages were given three times a day: breakfast at 8 a.m., lunch at 11:30 a.m., and dinner at 5 p.m. local time. "Alhamdulillah, the disaster survivors eat three times a day. We cook all of the meals at ACT”s public kitchen," he said.
He added that the beneficiaries were happy to have their need for food met. In these times of hardship, there are many who still care about their brothers and sisters in need.
"The need for food among earthquake survivors in Mamuju and Majene continues to be met. ACT is at the forefront of providing food for disaster survivors. Hence, we hope for the continuous support from the benefactors," he said.
Lukman explained, the best support from generous benefactors will be channeled to the disaster survivors directly through ACT team in West Sulawesi, including to survivors in remote areas. Therefore, the food aid can be distributed evenly to all.
