A video of a woman digging through trash in search for recyclable items recently made its rounds on the internet.
According to Malay Mail, the incident happened somewhere in Tumpat, Kelantan. The woman reportedly did so to find items to sell in order to raise money to take care of her children.
In a video posted by TikTok user @nadyazaira92, the woman could be seen scouring through a large dumpster while her three children sat on a motorcycle.
“When I thought my life was hard enough, apparently there are others who have it worse than me,” said the TikTok user, identified as Nadya Zaira on Facebook, expressing her sadness over the woman’s life condition.
Ms Nadya’s husband was seen pulling over and handed some cash for food to the woman’s children.
The woman, apparently touched by the kind act, expressed her gratitude before resuming to dig through the trash again.
Ms Nadya’s video has garnered over 20,000 likes on TikTok at the time of writing.
The TikTok user managed to track down the woman and donated some food to help ease the woman’s burden.
Ms Nadya on her Facebook account also thanked all the people who extended a helping hand and said that only God can repay everyone’s kindness.
Over on Facebook, netizens also expressed their sympathy towards the woman and her family.
They also lauded the young couple’s move to help the woman and her family.
Many also questioned the ministers’ whereabouts when they should be helping their people, with one netizen labeling them as “greedy leaders”.
