Building a better Malaysia starts with our concern for our fellow community members who are struggling.

One great example of this is the concern a standard two student had for her classmate when she found out that the girl didn’t have the necessary electronics to attend online classes.

Bukit Mertajam MP, Steven Sim, took to his Facebook page to showcase how Ashley, a standard two student, had come to him to ask for help for her fellow classmate, Nur, who has been absent from online classes because she didn’t have any electronic gadgets to attend class.

Sim wrote, “Ashley and Nur are classmates. They are both standard two students at a Chinese vernacular school in Bukit Mertajam. It’s been quite some time since Ashley noticed that Nur was not attending their online classes. Recently, she asked her mother to ask Nur’s mother as to why.”

The sweet girl had then found out that Nur and her family could not afford the necessary gadgets to attend online classes.

“When Ashley found out that Nur didn’t have any devices to follow online classes, she felt sad. She then remembered that her mother had told her of an ‘uncle’ who was giving complimentary devices to students, and asked her mother to get help from this ‘uncle’,”

“Earlier, Ashley came to my office to report on Nur’s situation. Ashley asked Uncle Steven Sim to help.”

Nur’s father is a security guard that earns RM1,200 a month. With two schooling children and another child on the way, Nur’s parents also felt saddened that Nur could not attend online classes.

“Truth be told, due to limited resources, the Asal Cek Mau Pi Sekolah programme does not include students below standard four. But, how can I reject the request of an 8-year-old who wants to help her friend? I was touched to see how Ashley cared for Nur. I was not willing to reject Ashley’s request,” he added.

Hence, Sim forked up the money from his personal funds and purchased a tablet for Nur.

“Today, Ashley brought me to Nur’s house. The two classmates met again after such a long time of not seeing each other,”

“Be happy, children. You have made us realise that the hatred for other skin colours is not human nature. Today, compassion wins.”

We should follow Ashley’s lead by showing concern for our fellow Malaysians, especially now during these tough times. If these children are the future of a better Malaysia, then we are clearly on the right path.

What do you think about this? Let us know in the comment section.
