A Foodpanda delivery boy in Kota Bahru, Malaysia, who had to borrow a bicycle from his friend to deliver food during the Covid-19 crisis, can now do so riding a motorbike, thanks to a philanthropists generosity, according to a video posted by TikTok user ‘amrandoloh77’ on Friday.

The teen delivery boy's story had been shared earlier this month via social media in both Thailand and Malaysia. The 19-year-old hails from Kelantan and was struggling to earn money for his family after the city went on full lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19.

A man who saw a shared post recently contacted the delivery boy, treated him to a pizza meal, and bought him a motorcycle to use for food delivery. Their photos were later shared on social media. Netizens praised the philanthropist for helping another human being in times of need, while encouraging the young man to keep fighting amid the crisis.
