Penang Man Who Spends Half His Salary Feeding Stray Animals Gifted With New Motorcycle
The 30-year-old has been using his brother's motorcycle as he could not afford to fix his own.
In May, the story of an animal lover who spends half his salary feeding stray cats and dogs in Bukit Mertajam, Penang went viral
It was discovered that Anfalazie Anuar, better known as Ann, has been sacrificing his salary in order to feed the stray animals twice a day.
When interviewed by mStar, the man revealed that he earns a monthly salary of RM850 from his cleaning job and RM30 a day from parking cars.
The 30-year-old has been using his brother's motorcycle to get around as he could not afford to fix his own, which needed repairing.
Many netizens were touched by Ann's selflessness, and some even expressed a desire to help.
Among them was the CEO of Motosikal dan Enjin Nasional Sdn Bhd (Modenas), a subsidiary of DRB-Hicom Berhad.
To make the surprise more special, the motorcycle was given to Ann in the presence of Azman Ali, the netizen who shared his story on Facebook
Azman took to Facebook to share a video of representatives from Modenas gifting Ann with the motorcycle.
"Allah will always give back to those who are genuine," he wrote.
In addition to the motorcycle, which was the first brand new bike owned by Ann, he also received duit raya from Modenas to ease his burden for his family's Aidilfitri celebrations, mStar reported.
"I have never gotten a gift before, let alone a surprise. Only God knows how surprised I was, I was actually trembling," the 30-year-old said
"Thank you Modenas for the gift, it gives me strength and support to continue to take care of the strays, and hopefully it means I can go to more locations after this," Ann told mStar.
"I would also like to thank Azman for sharing my story, as well as all Malaysians who supported and helped me, directly or indirectly. Only God can repay all you’ve done," he added.
Ann has been feeding stray cats and dogs rain or shine for nearly a decade. Read more about the good Samaritan here:
