It’s a difficult time for many as Malaysia still battles an unemployment rate of 4.6% as of April 2021, and a record of 468 suicide cases between January to May this year. Until the national COVID-19 vaccination programme has covered a significant number of the population or concluded, it’s hard to say that the situation will improve soon.

Therefore, those of us who are more privileged can also afford to help in our own ways. As individuals, we can keep an eye out for our neighbours and reach out with donations if we see homes with white flags displayed, for example.
