Photo of wheelchair-bound woman taking the MRT and delivering for GrabFood goes viral

Photo: Facebook

A photo of a woman taking the MRT to deliver for GrabFood while being wheelchair-bound has gone viral. Earlier today, netizen Karen took to Facebook to share the photo of a Muslim woman seated on her wheelchair on the MRT train.

What attracted the support and praises for the woman was the fact that she was dressed in the outfit meant for GrabFood delivery drivers, meaning that she was delivering food via public transport even while being confined to a wheelchair.

In about three hours, the photo went viral and attracted almost 1000 reactions and 400 shares. The photo was captioned, “There are always lazy people who complain even though they are in a good place. Look at this woman doing GrabFood delivery despite her disability! Those lazy people should just shut up their excuses already”.

Despite being on a crowded train, the woman also had the GrabFood bag strapped to the back of her wheelchair, just like any other food delivery rider.

Netizens who commented on the post not only sang praises for the woman, but also for GrabFood for partnering with her.

Netizens also shared a second photo of a wheelchair-bound man with the GrabFood cooler bag attached to his wheelchair. However, it is unclear if the man delivers for GrabFood as he was not seen to be wearing the uniform.
