Many Singaporeans are stepping up to help one another following the outbreak of Covid-19.
Yet again, another heartwarming story hits us in the feels, reminding us to be kind to the people around us during this crucial period.
Jun Yuan House Of Fish, a hawker stall at Old Airport Road, is on an endeavour to help an unemployed man recover his source of income.
The hawker will be giving S$1 from each order to Ah Guai who will deliver your food to you by bike.
Hawker engages help of regular customer to deliver food
According to Jun Yuan House Of Fish’s Facebook post, Ah Guai, a regular customer of theirs, lost his job amid the virus outbreak.
They explain that the Singaporean will find it hard to obtain a new livelihood considering his age and lack of skills.
As such, the food stall decided to help him out by engaging his help to make deliveries.
The reason? He has a bicycle, and can make deliveries as a result.
Hawker will deliver up to 1km away from Old Airport Road
With the introduction of this new initiative, Ah Guai can put his cycling skills to good use and earn at least enough to feed himself.
Jun Yuan House Of Fish is charging an additional fee of S$1 that will go entirely to Ah Guai.
They are extending this service to customers living up to 1km away from their Old Airport Road Branch.
This includes Singaporeans working at Mountbatten Square.
