Cerita tentang Pak Sahzan

Ada  pesan WhatsApp masuk. Saya buka, seketika ada hati yang rindu melihat swafoto yang dikirimkan. Swafoto saya berdua bersama Pak Sahzan. Pak Sahzan, begitu kami relawan IBU memanggil beliau. Pak Sahzan, salah satu relawan lokal IBU dari Desa Lombonga, Kabupaten Donggala.

Ketika pertama kami mau foto bersama beliau berkata bahwa foto itu yang akan disimpannya baik-baik jika rindu katanya. “Uh, Pak Sahzan bisa saja.”

“Foto bersama bang Awan, kalau rindu bisa lihat-lihat.”

Tidak saya sendiri. Semua para relawan IBU yang lain, beliau ajak foto bersama. Didatangi satu persatu “Boleh foto bersama?” “cekkrekk” hampir semua relawan IBU swafoto bersama beliau. Hehe.

Waktu itu adalah hari terakhir Lokakarya Dukungan Psikososial Terstruktur yang dilaksanakan selama empat hari untuk peserta relawan lokal di Kota Palu. Pak Sahzan menyempatkan diri untuk membeli baju baru. Saya kira buat oleh-oleh. Nyatanya, baju buat ditandatangani.

“Baju ini untuk minta semua tanda tangan relawan IBU Foundation. Akan saya simpan buat kenang-kenangan.”

Saya mengenal beliau pertama kali pada hari penutupan lomba tim anak dan remaja di Desa Lombonga. Pada pagi hari, beliau datang ke rumah Ibu Asliani (relawan lokal Lombonga). Dengan kaki dan seluruh tangan penuh sisa-sisa potongan rumput-rumput hijau.

“Loh, dari mana Pak Sahzan?” Tanya bang Iwan (relawan IBU).

“Habis bersihkan rumput. Biar rapi sedikit, Bang Iwan. Karena entar malam, bapak Wakil Bupati itu akan hadir pas penutupan lomba. Kasih rapilah sedikit kita punya lapangan.”

Sendirian, beliau membersihkan rumput-rumput tinggi di lapangan Desa Lombonga. Sambil sesekali Pak Sahzan “menutup” kotoran-kotoran sapi dengan pasir yang ada di belakang stadion. Maklum, disana sapi-sapi ternak itu dibiarkan berkeliaran.

“Setelah subuh tadi saya langsung kerjakan. Ini hanya sedikit.”

Pak Sahzan. Pak Sahzan.

Bahkan ketika acara Learning Event (serah terima kegiatan IBU kepada relawan lokal di desa dampingan), beliau pun datang. Acara itu dilakukan di enam desa, dari Sigi sampai Donggala. Desa yang paling jauh adalah Lombonga, asal desa Pak Sahzan. Tiga jam lama perjalanan dengan mobil dari Kota Palu. Di Sigi, desa paling ujung adalah Desa Bangga, lama perjalanan memakan hampir dua jam dari Kota Palu. Tidak kenal jauhnya jarak Desa Lombonga ke Desa Bangga, beliau tetap datang mengendarai sepeda motornya.

Di wilayah Donggala lain yaitu Desa Loli tasiburi beliau hadir. Di Desa Beka, datang. Di Desa Sibalaya utara, beliau tidak ketinggalan. Hanya di Desa Karawana beliau tidak datang, karena waktu pelaksanaannya tepat sehari setelah kegiatan dilakukan di Desa Lombonga.

“Ini menyambung silaturahmi bersama relawan lokal yang lain. Biar panjang umur.” Ujar beliau dengan senyum khasnya.

Minggu (31/3), peresmian dan penutupan Rumah Kencana di Desa Lombonga. Konon, ada air mata Pak Sahzan yang ditahan untuk tidak jatuh di pipinya. Air mata yang beliau sembunyikan untuk tidak terlihat sedih di depan teman-teman relawan IBU, karena perpisahan.

Setelah mengambil foto bersama, beliau tersenyum kembali. Tetap dengan air mata yang tidak jatuh di pipi.

Terima kasih Pak Sahzan. Doa baik kami, sehat-sehat, pak.

Sekotak Awan.

Relawan IBU


A notification from WhatsApp pops up. When I opened, my heart melts. A wefie picture of me and Pak Sahzan. We (IBU’s volunteers) called him Pak Sahzan. He is a middle-aged man, a father, and one of IBU’s local volunteers from Lombonga Village, Donggala District.

When we took a picture together, he said that he will save the picture carefully for him if he missed me. “Uh, I am flattered.”

“I want to take a picture with Awan, so I can see it if I am longing.”

Not only me, but all the team and IBU’s volunteers also took a picture with him. By his request one by one be asked “Can we take a picture together?” then “click”

It was the last day of the Structured Psychosocial Support Workshop which was conducted in four days for local volunteer participants in Palu City. Pak Sahzan took time to buy new clothes. I think for souvenirs. In fact, the clothes are to be signed.

“This shirt is signed by IBU Foundation volunteers. I will keep it for a memento.”

I knew him for the first time on the closing day of the children’s and youth team competitions in Lombonga Village. In the morning, he came to the house of Ibu Asliani (Lombonga local volunteer). With his legs and hands full of remnants of grasses.

“What you’ve done Pak Sahzan?” Asked Bang Iwan (IBU volunteer).

“Done trimmed the grass. Trim it a bit, Bang Iwan. Because in the evening, Mister Deputy Regent’s will be present at the closing. So, we trimmed grass in the field.”

By himself, he trimmed the tall grass in the Lombonga Village field. While occasionally Pak Sahzan “hide” cow dirt with sand behind the stadium. Understandably, there are cows left around in the field.

“After dawn I immediately did it. It’s just a little.”

Pak Sahzan. Pak Sahzan.

Even during the Learning Event (the handover of IBU activity to local volunteers in the assisted village), he came. The program was held in six villages, In Sigi and Donggala. The farthest village is Lombonga, the village of Pak Sahzan came from. Three hours long by car from Palu City. In Sigi, the endpoint is Bangga Village, which takes almost two hours from Palu City. Didn’t see the far distance between Lombonga and Bangga Village, he still came with his motorcycle.

In another Donggala area, Loli Tasiburi village he was present. In Beka Village, he came. In Sibalaya Utara village, he did not miss. Only in Karawana Village he didn’t came, because the time of the event was exactly one day after the activities were conducted in Lombonga Village.

“This correlates friendship with other local volunteers. So I can live much longer.” He said with his typical smile.

Sunday (31/3), the inauguration and closing of Rumah Kencana in Lombonga Village. It is said that there was a tear from Pak Sahzan who was detained for not falling on his cheek. The tears he hid and not to look sad in front of IBU’s volunteer, because of farewell with them.

After taking a photo together, he smiled again. Stay with tears that don’t fall on the cheeks.

Thank you, Mr. Sahzan. Our prayers are to keep your good health.

Awan
