One of the things Malaysians can undoubtedly take pride in is our spirit of helping one another, regardless of occupation or race.
In this heartening video, @mpv_shah is seen approaching an elderly woman who was collecting recycled items. The abang polis engages in a thoughtful conversation with her, seeking to gain a deeper understanding of her situation.
The elderly woman shares that she collects and sells recycled items as a means to make ends meet. She also reveals that her husband has passed away, and rather than burdening her children, she prefers to manage on her own.
Touched by the elderly woman’s story, the abang polis then decides to extend a helping hand. He donates some cash to assist her in her daily struggles, showcasing the genuine kindness that still exists within the community.
The act of kindness did not go unnoticed, as netizens flooded the comments section with heartfelt responses.
“This is so sad. A mother can take care of 10 kids, but it seems that 10 kids can’t even take care of one mother.”
“Much respect for this abang polis. Let’s have a drink together if we ever bump into each other.”
“Thank you, abang polis. I pray that you always stay in good health.”

Lending a helping hand doesn’t always require grand gestures. Sometimes, even the smallest acts of kindness can leave a lasting impact on those in need.
It’s heartening to see Malaysians coming together to make a positive difference in each other’s lives!
