Singapore – The dedication of a wheelchair-bound courier to his job sparked respect and admiration from a client and the public.

Shah Ismail took to Facebook on Thursday (Sept 2) to share his experience with “Ayeed the Courier.”

Mr Shah recently engaged a courier service through Telegram, his parcel to be delivered to Tampines Hub at 11:30 am.

The client was surprised to see Ayeed, who arrived at his doorstep an hour early.

“In my mind, I thought it was some door to door sale,” said Mr Shah.

After asking if he could help the man with anything, Ayeed replied that he was the delivery rider for the Tampines Hub order.

“I was speechless. I asked a lot of questions to him,” said Mr Shah.

He asked if Ayeed was alone and how he was going to reach his destination.

“He told me he was alone and (would take) public transport.”

Ayeed assured Mr Shah not to worry because his parcel would reach Tampines Hub by 11:30 am.

“Just so you know, it was from Woodlands to Tampines Hub. And furthermore, the weather today was gloomy and was drizzling and the thought of him taking public transport to reach his destination. Gosh. I could not imagine,” wrote Mr Shah.

He admitted that meeting Ayeed was an eye-opener as he was someone with reduced mobility yet still willing to work hard during these challenging times.

“Thank you, Abang; I really appreciate your help. It definitely made an impact in my life,” said Mr Shah.

He provided an update that the order was delivered successfully and hoped others could support Ayeed as their courier.

Members from the online community extended their respect for Ayeed and said they would remember to book his service in the future.
