Kamisah, who works as a security officer, said she too had been separated from her four children who are in Malaysia since the border between the two countries was closed due to Covid-19 in March.

"I have a rented house in Kampung Melayu Majidee in Johor Baru. Every week, we will go to JB. At the moment, my youngest child lives there.

"Every three months, I will visit my three other children who are in Kota Baru in Kelantan, Kulim, Kedah and Kota Tinggi, Johor.

"So I really understand the feeling of being separated from family. I also miss my children and grandchildren, ” said Kamisah. - Bernama
