A total of 3,000 food packages were distributed on that day. Colonel Wahyu said that it was a realization of their concern for the nation, apart from their dedication all this time.
"Hopefully, we as soldiers and police officers can directly help the people whose livelihood is disrupted due to the Covid-19 pandemic in the last two years. At least, this food aid can ease the burden on our brothers and sisters in need," said Colonel Wahyu.
He also appreciates the Aksi Cepat Tanggap who supported the action. “This is great. This activity is supported by ACT. We received support from the six cities so that we can distribute this assistance more widely to the community. Thank you to ACT,” added Colonel Wahyu.
Yana, a single mother in the Pademangan area, North Jakarta, was one of the recipients of this assistance. She thanked PAKATI 96 TNI/POLRI for paying attention to the plight of the underprivileged community. "Alhamdulillah, this can support my daily needs. My sales were affected by the pandemic, and lately, I often take days off since I have to take care of my paralyzed mother," said Yana.
