Chun Higgins recounts an incident where he gives a lift in his car to an older woman who seemed to need help. It turned out that the woman was sick and needed $100 for medical treatment, but her daughter would not give it to her.
“I was washing the car at the (Multi Storey Car Park) MSCP at about 5am when an old lady approached me and asked what time is the first bus over here. I never had the chance to took first bus rides near my home place, thus I gave her an estimation of 6 to 630am. She then replied ‘OK’, and carried a number of bags with her as she walked away.
When I’m done with the car, I took a peep at the bus stop and realize she was still waiting there. I have no idea why but I just felt that this old lady is in real need of help. So I decided to give it a shot and approached her as I drove the car out. Indeed, this old lady is currently suffering from illness.
I did not bring enough cash with me nor had I brought my card out (I can’t offer her any cash to take the taxi), so I offered a free ride to her desired destination.
Throughout the journey I realized she (a Chinese Indonesian) was actually begging for $100 from her daughter just for medical fees as she was ill for TWO WEEKS without medication help. It was so heartbreaking to then realize that this strong lady had once supported the whole family alone given her husband who left the family at the age of 42. Now that she is back to just ask for the $100, but failed to get it for two weeks long and still pending. I usually don’t like to care about other people affairs but this time I really think it’s really too much.
To the daughter, please take good care of your mom. She is in serious need of your concern and love. If this video means nothing to you at all, I really have nothing to say.”
