Because of these massive floods that have affected so many people, rescuers have been working hard day and night to get these people to safe areas.
A photo posted on Facebook shows rescuers sitting on wet floors, gobbling down their food before they have to get back to work again.
The caption reads, “What we don’t see behind the scenes”.
According to Sin Chew Daily, these workers don’t even have time to change their clothes and often don’t have enough time to even eat!
They then urged netizens to think twice before making any negative comments on these disaster relief workers. If they are slow in giving assistance, don’t blame them as as they have been swamped day and night rescuing flood victims.
Many netizens filled the comments with encouraging messages and thanked the workers for their hard work and sacrifice.
Without these workers, many victims would not have survived. They truly are our heroes!
