Urged others to be understanding of riders

The passer-by shared that he experience delivering goods before, and understood the rider’s fatigue and exhaustion all too well.

He asked Singaporeans to be more empathetic of riders and deliverymen, especially now that times are tough with lots of orders to complete.

Lastly, he reminded riders to take care of their own health, as health always comes first. If riders are feeling unwell, they should take some time off rest and recuperate before returning into work.

Be kind to others who are struggling

Going in to Phase 1 and reopening the economy will bring a whole new set of challenges for many of us.

It’s important that we stick together as a community, and be kind to each other as we overcome those challenges together.

Whether they’re struggling or not, be considerate and empathetic to others during this period of uncertainty. After all, we’re all in this together.
