SAMARINDA. (18/04) Rumah Zakat again distributed post-flood aid to Jembayan residents, precisely in Jl.Singa Lawang Rt.08, and Rt.09 Dusun Ukung, Jembayan Village, Kutai Kartanegara, in the form of food packages and school supplies.
By taking three hours from Samarinda Volunteer Rumah Zakat and also empowered Village Facilitator Kukar to disaster location, people of Ukung Hamlet directly welcome Rumah Zakat House volunteers with happy face. It is still visible on the walls of the houses of former residents of the flood that had crippled the activities of the residents. Although the flood has passed, but the people still need help, because resident’s only livelihood is rubber farmers, while the price of rubber is very cheap plus it often rains so sometimes in a month it can only harvest once.
The aid was directly handed over to the people and symbolically received by the local Chairman.
“This assistance is very beneficial for our citizens, in Rt.08 alone there are 100 families, who are still in great need of help, thanks to Rumah Zakat who have been far away just to meet us and assisted with food as well, children are also happy to supply school supplies “Said Ibu Nur Jannah, Head of RT.08
“Alhamdulillah, I am happy to have package of basic foods, this aid is very beneficial for our family, especially our income is very limited now, the price of rubber is very cheap. Hopefully donors zakat house smoothly sustenance. Success continues “Said Mrs. Mariana haru, one of the beneficiaries.
