Realising the hardship others are going through during these difficult times, a family in Kuala Lumpur has set up a charity kiosk to assist those in need.
According to Nur Hasha, who took to Twitter recently shared that the kiosk was opened by her mother to give away food and essentials to the needy.
She said the kiosk was in honour of her grandparents who were also very charitable.
“If you know anyone staying around Keramat or Kampung Baru and in need of essentials, do drop by,” she tweeted.
She said the kiosk is called Pondok Sedekah Omar Zabedah.

Hasha said her mother was interviewing some people for a position when she realised how many of them were laid off and needed help.
“My mum realised many were fired and had kids to feed back home. Following that, she decided to start the kiosk,” she said.
Since her Tweet, others have also come forward to donate cash and kind to the kiosk.
Yesterday my brother and our team went and distributed essential packages to 25 families. To think that it all started from a small pondok, thank you all so much for the support! ?? pic.twitter.com/AM7MhdPFnW
