Malaysian cafe donated 1,000 chickens during FMCO


Every now and then, we see Malaysians engaging in charitable acts to help out the underprivileged members of society. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, these kind acts are even more crucial as many more Malaysians see a loss in income brought on by the lockdowns, with some of them even being pushed into poverty.

In trying times like these, looking out for each other is especially important and that is what a Malaysian cafe did recently. They donated tonnes of poultry to people who are stranded in their homes during the Movement Control Order (MCO).

A Penang-based cafe called Pak Mat Western has been keeping themselves busy with donations during the MCO 3.0. On Monday, 21st June 2021, they uploaded a video capturing one of their recent charitable works.

In it, they can be seen donating up to 1,000 raw chicken to people who are in need of the food. The video, which is 1 minute and 14 seconds long, includes snippets of the cafe staff sourcing, preparing and delivering poultry to a place.

Bags full of raw chicken can be seen piled up in front of the donation location as the video ends. Since its posting, the viral video has racked up over 300,000 views and 22,000 reactions from Malaysians.

It’s always heartwarming to see Malaysians looking out for each other during these difficult times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many more people out there who are in need of help, especially those who live in secluded, rural areas with little to no access to essential items.

We hope that Pak Mat Western’s charitable act will inspire more Malaysians to come forward to help those who are struggling to put food on the table. A kind gesture such as this one should become a daily habit for all of us.
