RM40 Left In His Account, Actor Aaron Aziz Asks Netizens For Help With Food

today5 November 2020

Background

There’s no doubt about it – everyone is feeling the pinch in some way, shape, or form as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Not too long ago, iconic Malaysian actress and singer Adibah Noor shared how she was having a hard time herself and thus, couldn’t respond to those who had contacted her for help during the movement control order and subsequent conditional movement control order. The actress shared how she had to sell her house and pawn her jewellery to make ends meet and thus, the 50-year-old was apologetic for being unable to help others.

 

 

And most recently, Singaporean actorΒ Dato’ Aaron Aziz, took to his own social media to highlight how artists aren’t exactly living in the lap of luxury. In his post, he quipped:

 

“Many people like to show off luxury. I want to share with you the flip side of luxury. Artists are also normal human beings… looking for the same livelihood as well. Give me a few tips, what can you order to eat with RM40 for 4 people?”

The ‘Evolusi KL Drift’ actor went on to include the hashtags:

 

“#Jgnkecamye #Abgcumanakbagisemangat #AbgtakkayatapiALHAMDULILLAH #AbgbankinkatOreo #Abgbagikatanak #AbgbagikatMakygtengahsakit #Kocetkosongtapitanganberisiyedontplayplay”

 

Expressing his wish to merely give strength and highlight the difficulties present in the economy at the moment, many fans who have followed the actors progress through the industry expressed that they understood the meaning behind his post. Many left comments expressing their support for the ‘Ombak Rindu’ actor who has been actively helping out the underprivileged communities around Malaysia through hisΒ charitable organisation, Journey To Insyirah. The charitable organisation had helped to provide lodging and clean water, as well as a van for a tahfiz centre in Langkawi, Kedah.

 

On top of that, earlier this year (during the first Movement Control Order),Β media outlets picked up the 44-year-old actors good deed as he helped almost 1,000Β individuals and families withΒ about RM50,000 worth of essential supplies. According to Aziz, the items were distributed toΒ various communities in Pahang, Melaka, Johor, Perlis, Kedah, Selangor and Kuala Lumpur. At the time, he shared:

 

“Praise be to God, we have received a lot of funds from people ever since this organisation started two years ago.. When the Covid-19 pandemic happened and the MCO was enforced, many people messaged my wife and I for help. So we were able to channel the donations to those who really need it. I hope that whatever we do will be of help to the needy at this moment,”Β
