Minal aidin wal faidzin…!

The holy month of Ramadhan has just left us… now all members of RAC Bandung Metropolitan are probably spending times with beloved families and relatives… but did u know that during Ramadan, RAC Bandung Metropolitan has made remarkable efforts in serving the community? Well, here it is, a report which is probably suitable to be called, RAC Bandung Metropolitan’s Series of Ramadan events

Unlike the previous years, RAC Bandung Metro did not only fill Ramadan with one or two events, but there are several simultaneous events distributed evenly I 4 weeks of Ramadan!!! The events are:

1. Teaching program

The Project Officers for this event were Rtr. Anki and Rtr.Bagus… We made a schedule to teach the children at Yayasan Ibu Aam, a charity foundation focusing in taking care of Orphanage and under-poverty children… This program is conducted 3 times a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, starting from August 24th to September 12th… There, we helped the children studying mathematics and English…

2. Aids to Earthquake Victims

No one expects disaster to ever happen in this lovely country, but a terrible earthquake unfortunately happened on September 2nd, 2009 in most regions of West Java… RAC Bandung Metro reacted to it, by sending aids and some members to assist the victims in Pangalengan… the aids consisted of food supplies, baby and maternal nutritions, medical utensils, blankets and pillows, etc.

3.First Buka Puasa Bersama

This one was actually VP Mahir’s events at his boarding house… He invited 80 children from 3 different foster homes and organized a merry events (such as games) during the Buka Puasa events… several of RAC Bandung Metro’s members were also involved in setting and helping up the events…It was held on September 5th, 2009…

4. Second Buka Puasa Bersama

The second one was held a week after, on September 12th… It was meant as a closing event for the one-month teaching program… this one is an official RBM program, and the event consisted of playing games, Buka Puasa, Magrib pray, then closing speech by President Libbi and Mrs. Meiti as the caretaker of the foster homes

  1. Hi there,

    I’m a 21 yr old teacher from Singapura and am very interested in doing volunteer work at an orphanage in bandung. I heard its a beautiful place with beautiful people and i simply love children.

    I teach English and am looking forward to spending my time fruitfully with the orphans. Please tell me how i can go about getting an orphanage to work with for a week. I’m hoping to go to bandung in 2 weeks time and stay there for a week.

    Pls let me know. I hope to get a reply through email from you.

    Thanks!!
