ACTNews, BLORA – In Independence month, Aksi Cepat Tanggap (ACT), Masyarakat Relawan Indonesia volunteers, and Komunitas Jumat Berbagi held an event for veterans in Blora. The team delivered food packages to the nation’s fighters. The veterans gladly welcomed the assistance.
The symbolic handover of food packages for veterans was held at the LVRI DPC Secretariat Office, Blora Regency. Only volunteers and management of LVRI DPC attended the event by strictly following the health protocol. ACT volunteers directly sent the food packages to veterans to minimize crowds and break the chain of the spread of Covid-19.
One of the DPC LVRI administrators in Blora Regency, Suwoto, expressed his appreciation for the volunteer-led movement, especially from the younger generation who raise awareness for veterans. “Welcome to the brothers and sisters who have given their time and care to get in touch with the veterans of the Blora branch. We thank those who still care about the fighters," said Suwoto.
A good response also came from Mulyono, Secretary of the DPC LVRI Blora. For him, activities that involve the younger generation are a form of struggle today. He hopes that everything they do can bring benefits to many people.
Head of MRI Blora Tio Ikhtiar said the assistance was from the community's generosity. Hopefully, in the future, similar activities can continue and expand. “Assistance for volunteers is expected to continue, not only at certain moments. All of that can be realized depending on us the younger generation," said Tio.
