A little help goes a long way, especially for our medical frontliners who are stretched to the limit with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ahmad Syafiq Syahmi Baharudin wanted to play his part to help our frontliners, so he decided to help sweep and collect rubbish at the quarantine centre, that he was staying at.
According to Facebook user, Xuanxuan Lim, 28-year-old Ahmad Syafiq pitched in to help his bunkmates and frontliners at the Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC), which is a Covid-19 Low Risk Treatment Centre (PKRC).
He was admitted there for treatment since May 21.
Though he found the conditions at the centre comfortable, he could not sit still and decided to help out.
So, he picked up a broom and began cleaning the area around his bed, dining room and prayer area.
He said the number of patients were increasing at the PKRC and he also felt sorry for the two children and their uncle who were in the beds next to his.
“They were young and I wanted them to feel comfortable during their quarantine,” he said.
The assistant restaurant manager said his deed earned him the nickname “cleaner” at the PKRC – something which did not bother him at all.
“I was thankful that I was able to help out in a small way,” he said.
