Here’s the translated post:

“Peace be upon you…

Today many people laughed at me because I washed the playground around the Bukit Jelutong U8 area.

Do you know why I washed the children’s playground?

The coronavirus has attacked thousands of people in so many countries including ours and taken hundreds of lives. In order to prevent our children from being infected by the coronavirus, I washed the playground.

I became a volunteer with the intention to help the community in the Bukit Jelutong area so we should not lower our guard against the coronavirus.”

Kind man wanted to help community by washing playground

Mr Mustaqim, the man behind the post, said that he wanted to be a volunteer to help his community.

This was no easy feat, considering that the playground is hard to navigate for an adult.

Armed with only what looks like a rag, he wiped down every surface with the soapy water.
