As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to rage on, more caring Malaysians are going out of their way to help others in need.
Among them is Normah Ibrahim, 63, from Kampung Gelung Bubu in Kepala Batas.
Hearing that some of villagers had run out of food, she decided to initiate a food pack proramme with the help of some neighbours.
“I felt bad when I heard some of them don’t even have food on the table for their family.
“It is so painful to see them living in such conditions,” said the single mother.
According to reports in The Star, Normah ised her Cost of Living Allowance payments and some donations to purchase food packs which were distributed to about 20 families.
So far, she said she had spent about RM2,000 on the food items and will help continue helping needy villagers.
Normah, who lost her husband two years ago, said Hari Raya Aidiladha would only be meaningful if all the villagers were able to enjoy a higher quality of life.
For now, all Normah wishes for is the vaccination exercise to be expedited, so that everyone in her village can return to their normal life.
