Giving her all despite her disability.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been really tough on a lot of people, but there is a silver lining to it.

We've read a lot of stories about how Malaysians come together regardless of age and religion to support each other, especially the frontliners who are keeping us safe.

These stories, like the one we're about to share with you, bring tears to our eyes.

A big heart

No hands, no problem!
A Malaysian girl recently became the internet's latest darling when she was seen sewing personal protective equipment (PPE) gowns for medical frontliners in a clip that has gone viral on social media.

She managed to do that despite being born with no hands.

According to a report by Sinar Harian, the girl named Norfarrah Syahirah Shaari is part of the Teluk Intan Community College staff team that's hard at work sewing PPE gowns for our medical frontliners.

In the one-minute, 59-second video she posted up on her Facebook page, Norfarrah made sewing with her feet look so effortless:

Norfarrah, who is also a motivational speaker, wrote: "A lot of people wanted to see how I sew using my feet. Let me show you my skills".

She also revealed that she's part of a charity and social responsibility project called #CommunityToCommunity, which is made up of ten members from the Teluk Intan Community College.

"This is the best I can do with the Teluk Intant Community College team and a few volunteers around Teluk Intan, who are very eager to help," she further wrote.

Making it look so effortless.
According to the Malay daily, around 30 seamstresses, as well as the volunteers from the Community College team, have been working day and night to produce PPE gowns for the frontliners stationed at Hospital Teluk Intan dan the Klinik Kesihatan Teluk Intan.

To date, the team has cut more than 400 meters of cloth and distributed to the seamstresses for them to sew at home.

Thank you so much for helping out, you guys!
