It’s heartbreaking whenever you come across a homeless person on the street. It makes you wonder what happened in their life for them to end up begging for money and doing whatever they can to survive. Many have offered help by donating clothes, food, and money whenever they can afford to.
Some have provided shelter for homeless people so that they can live more comfortably and away from any danger on the streets. Now many are willing to help this senior citizen who has apparently been living on the stairs at KLCC for a few months. Here’s his story:
semoga Allah mempermudahkn segala urusan pakcik,sdah berape bulan tidur ditangga jer..sebak rasa aty,terus teringat org tua dikampung…ada yg lebih susah…#fyp#ebitlew#mohonbantuan#klcclrtstation#jkm#NGO#sedih#bersamamu#agensibantuan#fypbantuanviral@ustazebitlew
TikTok user who goes by @aishahramly96 or Aishah posted a video of her encounter with an old man sitting on the stairs nearby KLCC. According to the Coway worker employee, she and her colleagues saw the man sitting there when they arrived at KLCC for a programme. On their way home after the event was over, they saw that the old man had not moved from his original spot and thus leading them to ask about his well-being.
It was then discovered that the senior citizen is apparently homeless and had been living on the staircase for a few months. It was understood that his wife and his children have passed away so he had no one to rely on for help. Happily chatting with the group, as seen in the video, the man told them that he hopes to find a comfortable place to live in soon.
“He told us he’d still be grateful regardless if it’s a Retirement Home or a homeless shelter,” said Aishah. The TikTok video quickly went viral with now over 775k views and 4.9k comments at the time of writing. Netizens flooded the comments section with many offering their help to the old man. One netizen, in particular, offered to rent a room for him and that she’ll pay for it.
Some netizens also tagged entrepreneur Ebit Lew so that he can provide his help to the old man as well. At the time of writing, there is currently no update from Aishah nor does anyone know the homeless man’s current whereabouts as some commented that he left the area.
