ACTNews, KALOLENI, SOFIA - Wanyeta Abdul Aziz (13) comes from a very poor family. He never bought new school kits. His family depends on the sales of their crops to make ends meet.

"I am very happy. I thank ACT for this gift. With these new school kits, we will be able to attend classes and also improve the quality of our education for a better future. May Allah reward the generous people in Indonesia," Wanyeta said.

From July 11 to 18, 650 new school kits were distributed to children in Sofia and Kaloleni. Andi Noor Faradiba from Global Humanity Response – Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) stated that the beneficiaries of the aid distribution were orphans who go to school. "They need assistance to support their education. They are children from poor families who cannot buy schools kits and are totally dependent on humanitarian assistance, "Faradiba explained, Monday (7/27).

Faradiba hoped that this program will assist the education of the children amid the COVID-19 pandemic that force many of them to study from home. []
