ACTNews, YOGYAKARTA, AMBON – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) continues to carry out the Safari Subuh program in many regions, including Yogyakarta. ACT held this activity to welcome the congregation of Fajr prayer with ready-to-eat dishes at the At Taubah Mosque, Cokrodirjan, Suryatmajan, Danurejan District, Friday (26/11/2021). This mosque is a worship facility for residents near the banks of the Code River. 

Danang Nurhidayatullah from ACT Yogyakarta program team said the benefactors supported this program by channeling their alms. Later, ACT team will distribute benefactors' alms in the form of ready-to-eat meals to congregations and residents. 

"This program is a joint effort of the community amid the pandemic. It starts at dawn,” explained Danang. ACT team also distributed ready-to-eat meals directly to beneficiaries who did not attend the dawn prayer at the mosque.

ACT chose At Taubah Mosque as the location because most of the people living on the banks of the Code River are poor. Previously, ACT also conducted Cheap Food Operations.

Expanding action

ACT carried out Safari Subuh also at Al-Ikhlas Arumbai Mosque, Ambon, Maluku, Thursday (25/11/2021). Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) Maluku support this activity. 

Wahab Loilatu, Branch Manager of ACT Maluku, says the Safari Subuh program will continue to expand in urban areas and outer islands. “The beneficiaries of Safari Subuh are the mosque congregations and Mardika Market sellers who start their activities before dawn,” explained Wahab.

A warm welcome also came from the beneficiaries. Kia, a fish seller at Mardika Market, is one of them. She hopes that the Safari Subuh program can continue to assist residents.

"Thank you so much. May Allah repay all the kindness of all of you," Kia prayed to the MRI volunteers and all the benefactors involved in this act of kindness.[]
