Wheelchair-Bound Man Had Difficulties Going Uphill
With their unparalleled convenience and variety, food delivery services like foodpanda are popular dining options for busy Singaporeans.
Yet very often, little thought is spared for delivery personnel who work day in and out dispatching meals from door to door.
On 5 Mar, one Twitter user named Joanna Cockle tweeted a screenshot of a Facebook post by an unnamed user.
Attached to the tweet was a picture of a wheelchair-bound food delivery man seen at Cairnhill Circle.
Delivering order at Cairnhill Circle
According to the Facebook post, the foodpanda delivery man was seen at Cairnhill Circle completing a delivery order.
Attached to his wheelchair was foodpanda’s signature pink and grey delivery bag.
Given his disability, the delivery man allegedly faced difficulties travelling up the elevated terrain.
Sensing his struggles, the Facebook user helped to push him up but was only able to do so for the length of “one traffic light’, as she was accompanied by her newborn baby.
The Facebook user’s kind gesture presumably inspired others, as passersby later took turns to extend a helping hand.
In retrospect, the encounter reminded the Facebook user to be kind to those around as we never know the difficulties each one of us may be facing.
Inspiration to all
Just last week, an image of another wheelchair-bound food delivery man made rounds on social media.
The picture clearly inspired many Singaporeans and has gone viral with over 8,100 shares at the time of writing.
While we may not be aware of their backstories, all of us can surely learn a thing a two from their determination and grit.
Additionally, food delivery companies like GrabFood and foodpanda also deserve praise for their inclusive employment policies.
