Lumbung Swadaya Desa is an empowerment program in collecting and distributing zakat and/or alms from the Laznas Djalaluddin Pane Foundation (DPF) institution. DPF empowers its fostered farmers by providing capital from the collection of zakat and/or alms which then distributes the farmers' crops in the form of rice to poor people in need. On April 12, 2022, DPF collaborate with student government (PEMA) Faculty of Psychology, USU to help find and distribute the results of collecting zakat and/or alms in the form of 10 sacks of rice weighing 5 kg per each bag which is intended for gravediggers around Medan.
student government (PEMA) Faculty of Psychology USU, represented by the Department of Community Service, then distributed zakat and/or alms on April 18, 2022 to grave diggers and bilal mayyit at TPU Waqaf II Pinang Baris, Jln. TB. Simatupang, Lalang, District. The 10 sacks of rice were given 1 sack each to 10 people who had been previously recorded. With this gift, the recipients expressed their gratitude and thanks to the USU Psychology Pema and DPF Laznas for the distribution of rice that had been given.
It is hoped that the program for distributing zakat and/or alms help the underprivileged in meeting their rice (food) needs. This program is also expected to improve the welfare of the fostered farmers in planting and distributing their rice yields. In addition, the cooperation that was built between the student government (PEMA) Faculty of Psychology USU and DPF through this activity could enhance the existing good relations between the two institutions.
