The recent shortage of certain foods, soaring costs as well as the country’s ongoing recovery from the spread of the Covid-19 virus have has made life very difficult for many Malaysians.
This applies even more to people in difficulty such as The B40 community and students.
However, it seems that the goodwill of the Malaysians has remained strong despite the difficult times.
Recently a food stall owner at Kafe N24 Streetcafe UTM, Skudai, Johor went viral as the stall the owner had left a goodwill notice about how struggling university students can eat there for free.
