“This gripped my heart. A foreign worker who has no income, scooping up some rice from the road. The packet had a hole and some rice spilt from it,” the caption reads.

The poor man seemed desperate as he tried to justify his actions by saying, “it’s okay, I can go back and wash it. It (the rice) is still edible.”

“Foreign worker or citizen, rich or poor, hunger hits us the same way. Let’s look out for each other to make sure no one is left behind. #KitaJagaKita”

Many netizens shared their pity for the poor man’s plight. One Facebook user even pointed out how many locals are also suffering from unemployment.
