“Alhamdulillah the assessment went well. Mr. Alfan from the Health Office is also very appreciative of this Posyandu activity. At first he was confused, why Posyandu is independent not from the government, but obtained by cooperating with Rumah Zakat. But once explained, he is very supportive and hope this Posyandu will be improved” Hana added.
