LEMBANG. Zakat Foundation of America synergizes with Rumah Zakat distributed Ramadan package on Monday, (19/06) in Mekarwangi Empowered Village, Lembang.
A total of 20 Eid Gift packages were distributed to 2 villages that were deemed desperately needed. The beneficiaries are generally the elderly, unemployed elderly and the two converts.
Aep Saepudin, Volunteer as well as Mekarwangi Empowered Village Facilitator said that deliberately the Eid Gift was disributed to two places because it was considered necessary special attention for the citizens. One of them is Mak Epon (76 th) who is now old age, he expelled her husband after married decades just because Mak Epon converted to Islam. Formerly he and her husband are animism. Now he lives with his son who also lives in simple conditions.
Not much different from Mak Epon, Mak Enong (65 th) also converted to Islam in 2016 yesterday. After being left by her new husband died after illness for several years. To meet his current needs Mak Enong works as a laborer in someone else’s garden.
“Happy and very grateful to have received this Eid family gift, may Rumah Zakat is given a better reply,” said Mak Enong when receiving Eid Gift.
Zakat Foundation of America in synergy with Rumah Zakat has distributed 3015 packages of Ifthar Meal and 215 Eid Gift to this year’s Ramadhan in 5 regencies in West Java.
