The nasty Covid-19 may have grabbed the world’s attention and crippled it, but these genuine souls have definitely won our hearts!
M. Ganesan was only working for five months as an assistant head chef at a restaurant in Beach Lane, Penang when the Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented in all the states. Hence, his employer had to deduct his salary and hourly wages which only left him crippled for a moment.
Rather than dwelling in sorrow, the 23-year-old took a leap of faith and started selling home-cooked meals to make ends meet, highly making use of his cooking skills by selling local favourites such as Nasi Lemak.
Hailing from Datuk Keramat, Ganesan has priced all his meals for a very affordable deal of RM2.50, while customers within a 10-kilometre range can enjoy a RM1 distribution fee. What a deal, ain’t it?
The young lad is also skilled in preparing western dishes but at the moment he can’t market those delectables because he doesn’t have the supply of ingredients required for a western menu.
The distribution will start from 9 am and those who are craving home cooked food, don’t forget to leave a message or call Ganesan at 013-5681517 or 016-2574302.
Tamil Ilakkiya Ravichandran, a 10-year-old has been making tiny toys and selling them at only RM5 at a petrol station in Nusa Bestari, Johor.
According to her father S. Ravichandran, the young student from SJKT Taman Tun Aminah had come across many stories of hardship within the community that has only been intensified due to the raging effects brought about by the pandemic.
Hence, the year four pupil decided to collect funds by selling tiny dolls and donating the money she has made so far to a Covid-19 relief box she had prepared. The money collected will be distributed to those that have been severely impacted by the pandemic.
So far, Ilakkiya has collected RM115.90.0 in total. At the same time, the kind-hearted girl is also feeding a stray dog with a fractured leg near her home.
Her generous heart is something that we all could admire upon and perhaps learn a little thing or two from this selfless girl.
May God bless both Ganesan and Ilakkiya for their magnanimous heart, and may they be rewarded for all the good deeds that they do!
