Two weeks ago, two Malaysian daredevils, Keow Wee Loong and Fatin Ilani received overwhelming attention from Malaysians over their attempt to promote the "Save Gaza Campaign" on top of a building in KL

The two risked their lives and climbed the facade of a building in KL with an important message to share with Malaysians. However, Fatin Ilani was criticised for doing this act.

On 11 August, The New York Daily News caught wind of the pair's endeavours

"When Fatin asked me if I could bring a "Save Gaza" poster with me on my next climb, I asked if she would like to join, and she said 'Yes.' I do this and it feels right because I have a message to promote," said Keow Wee Loong.

The message that Keow and Fatin Ilani were sending has also touched the hearts of roofers in Hong Kong. They scaled to the top of one of the tallest towers in Hong Kong in support of the campaign.

At the peak of the building, roofers Airin Tse and Daniel Lau were photographed holding a "Save Gaza" message similar to the one Fatin Ilani had carried

Based on photos uploaded on Instagram, Airin Tse and Daniel Lau appear to be active roofers in Hong Kong. See some of their amazing photos HERE:
