Delivery rider carrying baby during work touches hearts of Malaysians

PETALING JAYA: The determination of a young man who carried along his baby on a motorcycle while trying to make ends meet as a food delivery rider has touched the hearts of Malaysians.

A video of the unnamed man was posted on Thursday (June 16) on Instagram by celebrity preacher Ebit Lew.

"Brother, you are a great man, I can see that you are sincere in taking care of your child," said Facebook user Aminur Fathi.

Another Facebook user, Muhamad Khairi Kassim said the man proved that a loving father would do anything for his family.

"This is a father's love... he's willing to sacrifice whatever it takes to gain a bit of happiness for his family," he said.

Liew, on his Facebook post, said the father had to borrow his in-law's motorbike to work as a food delivery rider while the wife was working at a clothing store.

"I felt sad when I saw a video of this brother carrying his child while working as a food delivery rider.

"They don't have enough money, he was crying when we met earlier today; I’m happy to be able to meet him," Lew said.

Lew bought the man a motorcycle and told him to look for a nanny. He offered to pay for the nanny’s monthly fee.

"At the point when we think we are struggling, others might have it worse.

"When he was given a motorbike, we can see his tears and it makes us feel more grateful," he said.
