A group of volunteers gave out care packs to Malaysian workers stranded in Singapore due to the lockdown in Malaysia in front of King George's Building on Mar 31.

Stomper Sukur was one of the volunteers involved and alerted Stomp to the kind initiative started by social service organisation Ideal Services.

"We gave out curry chicken and rice to the workers as well as necessities like clothes, hand sanitisers, shavers, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste, combs and Salonpas plasters," he said.

"Some volunteers even went out of their way to find places to stay for some of the workers."

Sukur said he worked with six others to give out 60 packs to the workers. They plan on making this a weekly affair.

"We asked them to register via a Google document so as to prevent any food wastage," he said.

"There are hundreds, even thousands of Malaysians stranded with nothing in their possession.

"Some are even without clothes.

"This movement was initiated with us realising their efforts and sacrifices that help keep Singapore running.

"We are happy to add on to their cause by gathering volunteers and donors to pitch in and do what they can to help those in need."
