"It is carried out by collaborating and educating residents. Therefore, we will also collaborate with individuals and communities to prepare 1,000 sacrificial animals," he conveyed, Monday (6/27).
According to him, the Indonesian President Joko 'Jokowi' Widodo was even scheduled to hand the sacrificial animals to residents through the Jakarta Baznas Bazis at JIS.
"We are about to distribute the sacrificial meats in the form of canned meat, live animals, and fresh meat," he mentioned.
Meanwhile, 'The More Special Sacrifice' Program Committee Head TB Fadillah asserted that the JIS area was only used for the symbolic handing over of sacrificial animals, not for slaughtering sacrificial animals.
His side targeted to get funds of Rp 14 billion in order to achieve the target of 1,000 sacrificial animals. The fund obtained from the general public was targeted to reach Rp 6.5 billion, while Rp 6.5 billion from collaborators and Rp 1 billion from alms and infaq funds from Eid al-Adha were held at JIS.
"We distribute meats to all regions of Jakarta, including Thousand Islands. Even, the canned meat will be distributed to disaster victims since it lasts longer," he mentioned.
Previously, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan urged ASN, BUMD employees, and residents in Jakarta to distribute sacrificial animals through Jakarta Baznas Bazis.
"We also have installed backdrops and banners in strategic places to make it easier for residents who want to distribute sacrificial animals," he stated.
