His story sparked an outpouring of sympathy which apparently hasn’t ceased to this day.

Most recently, the hawker shared that a kind customer has come forward to sponsor free meals for seniors.

To carry out the good cause, the stall will be hosting a giveaway between 2pm and 5pm today (17 Mar).

They’ll be giving out the complimentary bowls of laksa on a first-come-first-served basis, so do head down early to not miss a chance.

Only seniors are invited to enjoy the giveaway so share this with any elderly folks you know who may benefit from the free meal.

Here’s the address they should go to:

88 Katong Laksa
Address:  79 Circuit Rd, #01-49, Singapore 370079
Date & Time: Friday (17 Mar), 2pm-5pm

Hope free meals will benefit seniors

While such kind gestures aren’t exactly rare, they always restore our faith in humanity and remind us that good people do exist in our society.

Kudos to the anonymous donor who sponsored the free meals for seniors. We’re sure the recipients will be deeply appreciative of the thought and effort.

Kudos to the hawker stall too, for taking up the offer and cooking up the meals for seniors in the community.

Here’s hoping that we’ll see more of such wholesome incidents in Singapore that uplift our society and help people in need.
