Amidst the rising cases of Covid-19, the demand for items such as sanitisers and face masks has increased ten-fold. The constant demand for these items has turned them into essential commodities.
Often people who rush to places such as pharmacies and convenience stores have to return empty handed because these items fly off the shelves in the blink of an eye.
Sometimes tough situations can bring out the best in a human being. This was proven true for a housewife who did not forget her roots.
During this tense situation, Haidah Abdullah, a housewife from Gua Musang, has taken the initiative to stitch and create her own home-made face masks to help out those who are in need of the masks during the Movement Control Order (MCO).
According to Harian Metro, she had stitched 200 masks and is intending to distribute them to the public free of charge.
This heart-warming act of kindness was carried out last Saturday (21st of March 2020) after Haidah heard the frustrations and needs of public through social media in regards to obtaining face masks.
“I have done 100 masks. And there are another 100 masks still in the process of being completed, before being distributed for free,” said Haidah. According to Haidah, her noble deed is an act of paying it forward to the community who once had helped her when she was struggling in poverty.
Prior to this, she was living in a small rundown space with her 5 children in Kampung Bukit Gajah, Jalan Industri, Gua Musang. It was the community and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO) who helped her by providing a sewing machine and helped her to regain her footing.
Following in Haidah’s footsteps, we hope that everyone will look after each other at this critical time and go through this together. What do you think of this article? Share your thoughts down below.
