> A refrigerator with food and drinks for the needy has been put up in front of a shop in Jalan Salim, Segamat, reported Oriental Daily.

Businessman Tee Piaw Tian said he wanted to help the needy around the area and that his friend gave him a second-hand refrigerator for that purpose.

Since the fridge was put up a month ago, a few homeless people and those in need had helped themselves to the donated food.

Some people had also called Tee to express their wish to donate food to keep the project going.

“There is a man in his 50s who will come every day to check whether there is food in the fridge. He will then bring some food like fried eggs or biscuits to put inside,” said Tee.
