25 November 2020. 325 families received a pair of solar lamps in Sambolawan, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao, Philippines.
ACT Malaysia and Tabung Bantuan Kemanusiaan (TBK) of Zakat Pulau Pinang, in collaboration with International Monitoring Team (IMT Malaysia) and Bangsamoro Human Rights Commission (BHRC), gave away 650 solar lamps to the residents of Brgy. Sambolawan, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao, Philippines. A total of 325 families (2 lamps per family) benefited from this project. We hope these lamps help to light up their homes and make them happier
We are thankful to ACT Mindanao for organizing and implementing the event and to IMT and BHRC for taking the time to assist. Jazakumullahukhayr.
Alhamdulillah, Our second sari-sari store is now operating in Crossing Pagatin, Datu Salibo, Maguindanao. A sari-sari store is a a small neighbourhood shop selling a variety of goods. The first one is already supporting a family of five in Cotabato City. Sari-sari store is a part of ACT Malaysia's initiative to provide small businesses to struggling families in Mindanao.
On 8 August 2020, 100 solar lamps were distributed to the residents of @ Naketan, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao for Terangi Malamku Project.
The preloved clothes from #nicetowear3 campaign were given away to the ladies of the communities during the last Qurban distribution of ACT Malaysia. Here are some of the happy faces who received the clothes.
ACT Malaysia's first #act_sarisaristore project will hopefully become a reliable source of income for this family.
A sari-sari store is a mini convenience store selling grocery items and toiletries. A family usually builds a small structure in front of their house which becomes a go-to-store for the neighborhood. Sari-sari stores are very convenient because they sell goods at small quantities. You can find 100 grams of sugar, 50 ml of cooking oil and 1 kg of rice in this store. Almost every neighborhood in the Philippines has a sari-sari store.

Everyone is feeling the crisis brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, even more so by those whose livelihood are directly affected like the trishaw and tuktuk drivers. In Cotabato City, income for these drivers has plummeted because of lack of passengers due to the community quarantine in place.
