Suhoor Meal Packages Benefit Daily Workers in Ambon

Towards the end of Ramadan, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) continues to intensify the food distribution. Apart from iftar, suhoor meals are also distributed to those who have started to work even before the sun rises.

ACTNews, AMBON – In the month of Ramadan, not a few people have to spend their suhoor outside their houses, without the warmth of their families in order to make a living.

One of them is Amira. A fruit and coconut seller who starts working every day in Mardika Market, Nusaniwe, Ambon City leaves before the sun rises every day. Because of that, she often has to eat her suhoor at the market.

Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) and Maasyarakat Relawan Indonesia (MRI) volunteers met Amira and other workers in Mardika Market in the suhoor meal distribution on Saturday (05/01/2021). On that Saturday, tens of suhoor meals were distributed, funded by the community’s alms through ACT Maluku.

Muhammad Syamsudin Mahu from the ACT Maluku Program Team said, the meals which had been distributed to the market workers were part of the Suhoor Meal Sharing program initiated by ACT during Ramadan. Apart from the market workers, the main target of the beneficiaries were the daily workers, peddlers, and underprivileged people who have started their activities at the beginning of the day. 

“Collaborating with various parties, this program is our communal effort to provide assistance for those who have started to make a living even before the sun rises,” explained Syamsudin.

Now, in the last days of Ramadan, ACT Maluku still continues to take part in this kindness action. Syamsudin added that the best alms could be sent to BNI Syariah account at 88 0000 4451 or Bank Muamalat account at 8710 222 222 in the name of Aksi Cepat Tanggap, or if you need a donation without a confirmation needed, you could also go to the official website of  Indonesia Dermawan.[]
