ACTNews, YOGYAKARTA – Partnering with Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), the Grab Berkah program continues after Ramadan. On Friday (5/13/2022), hundreds of meal packages were distributed to informal workers and elderlies at a nursing home around Malioboro Street.

Samuel Adrian from Grab Istimewa said that the meal packages given to the beneficiaries were prepared by 77 merchants partnering with Grab Food. The distribution took place at five points, namely Malioboro Street, Beringharjo Market, Al-Ma’un Mosque in Pringgokusuman, HIMMATU in Bantul, Ibnu Fattah Orphanage, and Jalan Wates in Kulonprogo.

“Over 700 meal packages were served. The meals were donated by merchants, restaurants, as well as loyal Grab customers, and we then collaborated with the ACT team to distribute them. Hopefully, this food distribution can be a blessing for the people in Yogyakarta and its surroundings,” explained Samuel Adrian, Friday (5/13/2022).

The ACT Special Region of Yogyakarta Branch Manager Nasrudin who was also present at the distribution at Beringharjo Market also greeted the informal workers and pedicab drivers. Nasrudin hoped that the program can inspire and ignite the generosity of the people of Yogyakarta.

"Hopefully, this will ignite our spirit to build togetherness and to prove that the people of Yogyakarta are people who like to share," said Nasrudin.

A pedicab driver on Malioboro street, Poniman, expressed his gratitude for the meals provided by Grab and ACT. He was happy because he was able to save his lunch money.

“Alhamdulillah, they gave me food today. It can save my expenses. We hope that ACT, Grab, and all the contributors will be blessed with safety and ease in their activities and we pedicab drivers can also make our living smoothly,” he prayed. []
