ACTNews, MUARA ENIM – The students in Nurul Madany Islamic Boarding School in Pulau Panggung Village, Tanjung Agung Subdistrict, Muara Enim Regency, received a ton of rice through the Rice for Indonesian Santri (BERISI) program in South Sumatra. The rice assistance was handed over directly by Reza Ardiansyah from the ACT South Sumatra Program Team to the boarding school administrator, Ustaz Juen, Friday (11/22)
"This is the third time ACT South Sumatra distributed rice to Islamic boarding school students in South Sumatra. This is a generous effort from the benefactors to support the life of the santris," Reza said.
Nurul Madany Islamic Boarding School was established out of the locals’ concern for the orphans, children of underprivileged families, and victims of domestic violence. The pesantren, which was established in 2014, has 142 santris.
In Pesantren Nurul Madany, the facilities are still very simple. There are only two classrooms that are used for learning. A mosque was also transformed into a classroom.
The boarding school administrator Juen expressed his gratitude on behalf of the students and boarding school administrators. "For the food and clothing, we’ll find and provide it to the students. Sometimes, there are benefactors come to provide assistance. If there isn't, I have to try to take care of the students’ needs myself," I Juen.
