Being a working parent is never easy, especially when you have no one to help you look after your kids when you’re off to work; resulting in parents having to bring their kids along to their workplace.
If the workplace is air-conditioned, and comfortable for the kids to be at, it’s fine. But imagine working as a hard labour, and having to bring your child along. That’s exactly what this foodpanda rider is facing.
Recently, a TikTok video from a user Zanethnasha (@mamayayahumarsoleh), went viral all over social media for getting netizens all teary eyed. She had secretly took a video of a female foodpanda rider at a gas station somewhere in Kuala Lumpur. The female rider can be seen carrying an infant along with her on the front side of, with a delivery bag propped at the back of her motorcycle.
Upon seeing this situation, Zanethnasha was moved and tried to hold back tears. She urged her husband to get down from the car and help the woman out. Despite that, she was reluctant and declined the help given, but the couple insisted. Zanethnasha did not only sympathise with the woman, but she also empathetically stated in her video, “I am tearing up. My kids are sitting comfortably in an air-conditioned car, while (she) and her child are under the scorching hot sun trying to earn a living.”
She captioned the TikTok video with a simple, “let us all help out.” The video has gained more than 30K views, and more than 200 comments at the time this article was written. The comments vary from empathetic ones that shared the same experience previously, to those asking how can they help by alleviating her woes.
There were two users who explained the situation of the rider, and at the same time shared her location to make it easy for those who would like to lend a helping hand. A user that goes by the name of Bunga, shared that the rider is her mother’s neighbour, living in the Abdullah Hukum’s Apartment block 88 and that she is often around Pantai Dalam and Bangsar. While another user who is also a rider mentioned how the child that she brings along on jobs, is fully blind.
Jom sama2 bantu..
We hope that the internet is doing its job in spreading the news so that the woman’s burden can be relieved.
