At least nine houses were burnt down in the fire in Pematang Rahim Village, Mendahara Ulu District, East Tanjung Jabung Regency (Tanjabtim), on Tuesday (25/8/2020). Although the disaster did not take any lives, but many fires burned the homes of the residents, because most of the houses there were made of wood so the fire quickly spread and grew.
Similar actions have often been carried out by IMM UM Jambi. In the year 2019, they have also contributed clean water, oxygen, face mask, as well as medical personnel to the victims of the fire disaster in Kumpe. And in the month of Ramadan, they work together with Lazizmu to provide groceries as well 1000 free iftar menu.
The tragedy that befell the residents of Pematang Rahim Village is enough to touch our human side. Hopefully these noble actions carried out by students of the Muhammadiyah Jambi University can be an example and a reminder for all of us, that as fellow human beings we should help each other.
