ACTNews, BANDUNG – Many people are still dealing with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that has not completely receded. Although activities have slowly resumed, the economy is still hampered. Poverty caused by previous activity restrictions leaves many families dealing with financial difficulties.
Due to this condition, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) and Muslimah Millionaire, a community of British Propolis sellers, collaborated to present generosity to the community. Using the Humanity Rice Truck, free rice was distributed to the beneficiaries in Dago, Coblong District, Bandung, Thursday (11/4/2021).
ACT Bandung Branch Manager, Wina Siti Maesaroh, stated that the Waqf Rice Distribution targeted the poor, the elderly, people with disabilities, war veterans, and students. This extensive scope of beneficiaries showed the tangible manifestation of humanitarian collaboration that brings a positive impact on society.
“Today's distribution is aimed at various segments of beneficiaries. We hope that the goodness that is resulted from this collaboration can be truly beneficial to the community," said Wina.
The Waqf Rice distributed to Dago residents was funded by the collective alms of the Muslimah Millionaire members. Chika, a representative from Muslimah Millionaire, hoped that this activity can continue especially in the midst of the pandemic where people are still waiting for assistance amid the hampering economy.
"Hopefully this activity can continue and expand to various parts of the country, as shown though the Humanity Rice Truck tagline: 'Exploring the Country, Delivering Free Rice'," said Chika.
