Celebrity preacher Ustaz Ebit Lew’s good deeds and kindess to people from all walks of life is well known in Malaysia.
Now, Ebit and his team have spread their wings to help those in need.
According to a report by Malay Mail
, the 36-year-old preacher is now in South Africa with a humanitarian mission in mind.
On Wednesday (24 March), Ebit shared via a post on his Facebook post that he and his team have successfully touched down in South Africa.
They were welcomed by the Malaysian Ambassador in South Africa, Mohamad Nizan, along with South African representatives.
“Am grateful to have arrived in South Africa. We were invited for a lunch session at the Malaysian ambassador’s home, who previously was the Malaysian ambassador in North Korea.
“The Malaysian embassy here is really helpful, as well as the South African people, who are also kind hearted,” Ebit shared in the post.
Ebit shared that they are planning a spiritual development programme and a dinner with Malaysian students in the country.
However, he made no mention on the humanitarian mission he is on, but we have a feeling that he's going to be doing what he does best: helping those in need.
We wish you and your team all the best, Ustaz Ebit Lew!
Heart of gold
Ustaz Ebit Lew is no stranger to helping those in need.
Over the past few years, the 36-year-old has selflessly put all his time and effort into making sure that those who need help get it, regardless of age and race.
Here are some of his most notable contributions to the society:
Opening a chain of convenience stores
In June 2020, Lew opened a chain of convenience stores called ElewsMart as a way to "give back to the community". On top of making sure that the prices of the items in ElewsMart are reasonably priced, Lew revealed that he also plans to open up food banks in his convenience stores to help those in need.

2020 is also known as the year of unscheduled water cuts, but thankfully, we have Ebit Lew. He bought two water tankers in October and worked the entire night to make sure that residents in Batu Caves and its surrounding areas get clean water supply during an emergency water cut.
Sending a plane-load of supplies to Sabah
When frontliners in COVID-19-hit Sabah appealed for help, who else but Ebit Lew to the rescue? The preacher rented a cargo plan and sent 10 tonnes of supplies consisting of basic food items from his very own Elews Mart warehouse to aid people in Sabah who are experiencing escalated number of COVID-19 cases.
Offering free hotel stays for families
Hotel stays can be expensive, especially when you're waiting for a family member to get well after a surgery. Ebit Lew, in November, offered free hotel stays for family members whose kin are being treated at Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) or the National Heart Institute (IJN).
Donating food to Zoo Negara
Ebit Lew doesn't just help his fellow brethens, he takes care of animals too. When Zoo Negara called for help from the public to feed its animals, Lew was one of the first to answer the call. He sent food supplies consisting of 200kg of cow meat and 500kg of fruits and vegetables to Zoo Negara on the same day the plight was made.
Helping an aunty service her car
When the plight of an old aunty who works as a FoodPanda delivery driver in her trusty old Perodua Kancil went viral, Ebit Lew volunteered to pay for the service of her car, as well as absorbing the cost of changing all four of its tyres. He also promised to visit her house soon to fix leaking pipes and whatever’s broken.
Offering accomodation to a family in need
Recently, Ebit Lew came to the rescue of a family of five who was forced to live in their car for eight months after their house burned down back in April. Lew rented a three-bedroom house for the family so that they have a comfortable place to stay while waiting for government aid.
