The pandemic has left many vulnerable to financial hardships in its wake. If life was tough before for the under privileged, it’s even more strenuous now as lesser opportunities are available.
Recently, a video posted by Samuel Lee on Facebook of his girlfriend passing money and food from KFC to two less fortunate children, went viral on social media. According to Foodie KL, the children were sitting outside a KFC branch in Sabah when Samuel and his girlfriend met them.
In the video, we can see the shocked yet happy faces of the children when they got their special KFC package, with the elder child giving a thumbs up to Samuel with a faint smile.
Many netizens on social media were touched by Samuel and his girlfriend’s act of kindness and thanked both of them for their support.
As of now, Sabah remains the state with the highest number of COVID-19 cases, with over 15,692 infected. There are many organisations, including individuals from Borneo Komrad, who have been helping the less fortunate people of Sabah with donations and daily essentials.
Syukur, tinggal 73 buah keluarga lagi yang memerlukan dana bagi pek makanan. Selebihnya, seramai 227 keluarga sudah pun ditaja oleh kalian semua, penderma yang budiman. Alhamdulillah.
Bantu sebarkan kempen ini. Peruntukan RM 80 per keluarga diperlukan. pic.twitter.com/s55w7m57IL

Our Rakyat Jaga Rakyat spirit is needed now more than ever. We hope that these children, and the rest of us, will see the end of this pandemic soon enough.
