ACTNews, SOUTH TANGERANG – Thousands of meal boxes lined up in the lobby of Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT) South Tangerang office, Tuesday (7/27/2021). In front of the office, dozens of Humanity Bikers were preparing and installing baskets on their motorbikes. They are the ones who will deliver the meal packages to the callers’ houses.
Humanity Bikers neatly arranged the food boxes in baskets that have been installed on their motorbike. For drivers, it is important so that the meals can reach the recipients in good condition.
Rody Maryanto from ACT South Tangerang Program Team said that the thousand meal packages delivered by the Humanity Bikers were the program implementation of Food Careline Services (FCS). The meal assistance program is ACT's response to the pandemic impacts on the community.
“People who face difficulty in meeting their food needs can dial the careline on 62800-1-165-228. After that, the operator will contact the caller through WhatsApp application to fill in the address and name data of the recipients” said Rody, Tuesday (7/27/2021).
Rody continues, people in need or those who no longer have food in their houses can call the number. Then, the FCS team will record the caller’s data and meal packages will be delivered by Humanity Bikers volunteers.
Yusuf from ACT South Tangerang Careline team said that within a day, 1,100 meal packages were distributed to the FCS callers. “There are still 350 meal packages that will be delivered in the evening. Therefore, today we have distributed a total of 1,350 meal packages,” said Yusuf.
Food Careline Services is ACT’s meal assistance program to help people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. It was officially launched by ACT on Monday (7/26/2021), in Menara 165, South Jakarta. Secretary General of Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), Amirsyah Tambunan also participated in the launching as a form of support from the Muslim scholars for ACT's humanitarian actions.
