Singapore – The GrabFood driver received a shipping order to find out later that the customer's address is too far from his location. Mr Nur Mamat intended to discard food when he decided to give it to an old man.
Nur Mamat initially called Grab about a mistake in the title after it became clear that the customer had typed in the wrong address 15 kilometers away from his location. Then they told him that the order was canceled.
Without knowing what to do with an order that was a big bag of McDonald's meals, he asked Grab about the company's policy in dealing with these cases.
Grab ordered him to remove food. But, Nur Mamat thought it would be unnecessary to discard perfectly good food. As it was a coincidence, he already saw an old man in the street near Serangoon Central.
So Nur Mamat turned to the old man, who was called "uncle" colloquially, and handed him a McDonald's food bag.
The 76-year-old uncle was surprised at what he received and said: "So much good food, ah, I do not hope to buy this expensive food."
Indededent asked Nur Mamat if he was worried about what Grab would do because he did not put food in line with the company's policy.
Nur Mamat says he was not worried about the consequences: "I know that what I do is a good thing. Even if Grab stopped me, I'm fine. I do not mind. "
People have expressed admiration for the good work of Nur Mamat. However, he said that it is more important for him to inspire people to help a less fortunate person than to be known on the Internet.
"I did all this not because of fame, but to creating awareness for all Singaporeans, because delivery lads will not often have this opportunity to help those needed," he said.
