Volunteer teacher Hartina Bulating Arssid has a steady supply of sea snails and seafood. Whenever she teaches her students at Pulau Mumiang in Sandakan, Sabah, parents will make sure she goes home with their fresh catch.

Before the current conditional movement control order, every weekend Hartina would teach English to about 60 students, and their parents want her to know they appreciate her services.
