CELEBRITY chef, Datuk Redzuawan Ismail or Chef Wan, has lashed out at people who are greedily taking donations or food aid without considering others who may need it more.
Chef Wan, in an Instagram post, described these acts as disgusting and embarrassing, Utusan Malaysia reported.
“I have been involved in fundraising and handing out donations to the less fortunate. I have seen for myself how some individuals misuse these donations.
“If the person is greedy and selfish, they won’t be ashamed and embarrassed to grab as much as they can.
“This is disgusting and embarrassing,” he wrote.
Chef Wan added that it was even more upsetting when irresponsible people took donations in large quantities to resell.
“What exactly has happened? I cannot imagine if a war broke out or a worse catastrophe would happen. How do the people of this country want to live?
“Just look at how many people are greedy and selfish in this world.
“Let us all try to be people who give rather than beg,” he said.
