ACTNews, TASIKMALAYA – ACT – MRI Tasikmalaya team once again visited one of the Islamic boarding schools in the region to deliver rice as part of the Rice for Indonesian Santri (BERISI) program. This time, the team reached Darul Falah Islamic Boarding School located in Sukasirna Hamlet, Sukaratu Village, Sukaratu Subdistrict, Tasikmalaya Regency.
The distribution that took place on Tuesday (1/9) aimed to support the food needs of the santri considering that quite a lot of students reside in Pesantren Darul Falah. There are around 200 students in this place, and 22 of them are orphans. Their faces were glistening with happiness as they helped to unload the rice from ACT Tasikmalaya’s car.
"Alhamdulillah, today we distributed rice to around 200 students living in Darul Falah Islamic Boarding School. We, ACT Tasikmalaya are happy to see the enthusiasm of the students here. Hopefully, this assistance can help the students in their learning process, "said Muhammad Fauzi Ridwan from Tasikmalaya ACT Program Team.
