In Ramadhan 1440 H the Widyatama Foundation held a regular program to distribute basic food packages to residents around the Widyatama University campus on Thursday (23/5) in the courtyard of the building A. This year, nearly 800 packages of basic necessities were given to the community.
The Lebaran package was handed over directly by the Chairperson of the Widyatama Foundation and Widyatama University, represented by the Daily Chairperson of the Widyatama Foundation Prof. Dr. H. Obsatar Sinaga, M.Sc along with other leaders of the Widyatama Foundation. Also presented by the Sukapada represented by Mr. Suhartomo in symbolic.
This activity is one form of Widyatama’s founder mandate in channeling CSR funds of the institution and a form of concern for the disadvantaged Bandung urban community, especially in the area around the Widyatama campus. The purpose of this activity is to be able to ease the burden of the poor in carrying out the fasting of Ramadan and build good social relations with the surrounding community.
Giving groceries to residents of the Sukapada village has become a routine agenda for Widyatama University more than 20 years ago. In addition to basic food packages, Universitas Widyatama also provides scholarships for residents who want to study through the Sukapada Village Scholarship Path.
Hopefully this activity can bring benefits and goodness to all parties. (Ed)
