Read this on Mothership. Feel good to share it here as it is a very touching act by the young men. Kudos to the pair, especially Khairul Anwar who fed the tissue seller! 

There is still warmth in the society. 人间有温情!👍

He did this after he realised the man could not partake of the food properly by himself.

Two friends having supper in Bedok one night turned into Good Samaritans, after one of them bought food and helped feed a person with disabilities who had trouble partaking of the meal by himself.

The kind actions of one of the Good Samaritans was captured on video and uploaded to the @sgfollowsall Instagram page.

According to the video's caption, the man who had trouble eating by himself is a tissue seller.

The incident occurred at an eatery in Simpang Bedok.

Man who bought food and fed tissue seller identified

The man who was feeding the tissue seller is Khairul Anwar, 24.

Khairul said in response to media queries that he and his friend noticed the tissue seller looking at patrons consuming their food.

At that moment, they could tell that the man was hungry.

So, they decided to buy him a meal.

Could not feed himself

However, when the tissue seller was trying to consume the food, Khairul realised that the man could not feed himself properly.

Khairul was still having supper at that time.

Wanting to do something about it, Khairul approached and asked the tissue seller if he needed help, but did not get a response.

Khairul then realised the man could not speak, but could nod and smile affirmatively.

Khairul then kept the man company and fed him until he finished his meal.

The video on Instagram has since been watched more than 113,000 times in two days.

I am more concern on how would the tissue man eat his meals daily?

The world will be an amazing place if we have more people like him. Silent workers around us who do more quietly like anonymous donors, blood donors, volunteers..

He's a real motivation.

Young man was well brought up to have empathy, and it's even more rare to take action besides being compassionate.

It is true that in a society there is a spectrum of people with different personalities and hold different moral fabrics.

Why is this so prevalent in Singapore? Every year we have increasing number of NGOs (excluding churches / temples / Mosques) all trying to elevate the difficulties or suffering of Singaporeans from most basic needs such as food, shelter.

Most are deserving of help. But there are some who despite being helped will still remain in the same situation eg money given instead of purchasing basic necessities would use for gambling / cigarettes / electronic games / etc. Others would sell their donated rice cooker / bed / etc for cash.

Singapore isn't poor by any standard but we do have a very large portion of people still struggling to have 3 square meals on their table.

We need to ask why are all these happening and why is it on an increase? Fair to say we can't eliminate them completely but we do have an increased in numbers.

 

Alot of times we like and quickly blame the government solely for all our social woes. However, we quickly forget too that it takes two hands to clap.

As a society, before it is too late, need to re-visit, collectively, plot our future and determine what is our collective priorities?  

To start the ball rolling: Do we still want to pursue to be No.1 at all cost? Do we need prudence in how our country spend her money - eg $100 billion was used for the Covid in less than a year and more is needed? Why build places of interests when the average Singaporean family cannot afford to visit? etc.

 

Go figure out what each of us can bring to table to contribute to make Singapore a great place for ourselves and children. Radx is banned from contributing, he will bring furnace to the table.
