BLITAR, Sunday (08/09). Sunday morning at 07.00 – 7.30, the Facilitator of Desa Berdaya Kemloko together with the citizens RT 05 RW 02 Kemloko Village, Kec. Nglegok, Kab. Blitar, Prov. East Java, held elderly exercise. Located in the courtyard of the home of Mrs. Maryanti. The exercise was attended by 16 citizens, most of whom were over 50 years old. The exercise is led directly by Lia Qotifah as the Facilitator of Empowerment Village Kemloko.
With the accompaniment of Mix music from dangdut, Indonesia’s Traditional music, to the national anthem, the elderly exercise takes place very enthusiastically. The seniors look so happy when the music starts playing. Laughing heartily with each other’s jokes, the elderly let go of all the problems that exist in their respective homes. Lia Qotifah led the exercise with enthusiasm while counting in unison 1 to 8. The exercise was deliberately chosen for anti-stroke and anti-hypertension.
This was the first time the elderly exercise was held in RT 05. Initially, it only took the form of medication and medical examinations. But when Kemloko Empowered Village Facilitator proposed at the RT citizens’ meeting, Alhamdulillah the response of the community was very enthusiastic and supportive. Insha Allah, this exercise will be held every Sunday morning.
Mukini (55 years) said, “Alhamdulillah, I am very happy to have a routine exercise schedule. We will be healthy, thank you Rumah Zakat.”
