Give beggars in kind, and not cash, generous Malaysians told

PETALING JAYA: Malaysians are a generous lot with many quick to give some cash to beggars but more often than not, such kindness is being taken advantage of.

Recently, there was an incident in Pahang where a beggar was found to have collected up to RM500 daily through public donations to the point of even owning a Proton X70, raising questions on whether they should be given cash.

Social activists say instead of cash donations, the public should offer assistance in kind to prevent the money from being misused.

Suriana Welfare Society chairman Dr James Nayagam said the public could donate goods based on what was requested.
