MUHAMMADIYAH.OR.ID, YOGYAKARTA – Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah always contribute to this nation, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
President of ‘Aisyiyah Siri Noordjannah Djohantini said Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah will always help this nation in the crisis without being asked.
It’s unnecessary to provoke Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah to give help because it has become the culture of this movement. The culture becomes the contentedness of the people.
Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah have synergized to take humanitarian actions and give contributions. Nevertheless, humanitarian work and charity organization management aren’t easy.
Muhammadiyah as the main organization to manage and establish charity bodies isn’t arrogant but provides ‘Aisyiyah opportunities to develop its own charity bodies. ‘
“It’s unnecessary to distinguish between Muhamamdiyah and ‘Aisyiyah because we synergize and work together. Indeed, when this nation needs us, ‘Aisyiyah will always be there,” Noordjannah said in the preaching of the Muhammadiyah Council for Public Health on Tuesday (10/8).
Many parties appreciated Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah health services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
March 2020, the beginning of the pandemic in Indonesia, after meeting President Joko Widodo, Muhammadiyah became one of the non-governmental organizations or perhaps the first organization that’s ready to tackle the pandemic.
The commitment isn’t nonsense because Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah have thousands of healthcare services in Indonesia which can also be used when this nation faces a crisis.
“Without doubt, we said we’ll help this nation, and we can finally work on it,” Noordjannah said.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, 15 Muhammadiyah hospitals have committed to help the government to deal with this pandemic. After it’s more than a year, we have provided 83 healthcare services for the COVID-19.
The hospitals are now helping the government to do preventive actions such as conducting vaccinations. Noordjannah hoped what Muhammadiyah and ‘Aisyiyah have done inspires others.
“May what we do raise other parties’ sense of togetherness and inspire them provide healthcare for this nation, not to take advantage,” Noordjannah said.
