I am sure for those familiar with the Damansara Uptown area, you would have noticed a man selling soft toys near the HSBC bank.

This man is Uncle David and he has been there for the last two to three years as I recall.

He is suffering from cancer and his only source of income to pay for his treatment is by selling these soft toys.

Okay, fine, maybe he does not have a licence to sell his toys, but who has he ever bothered and what traffic did he disrupt?

Yesterday, Uncle David had his entire stock taken away by the Petaling Jaya City Council enforcement.

According to him, a total of 107 of his soft toys were confiscated (RM642); 43 luggage tags (RM129), which added up to RM771.

Uncle David concluded his post with this:

"My items has been raised by MPPJ. I need cash to get stocks to earn an honest living. I need rm 750 urgently. Those in the position to help please help. Even rm 10; 50 or 100 will go along to helping me. David 016 2622 1701."

Seriously, why does the council have to go after this poor man when there are so many other serious law breakers around?

So, for those of you who want to help out this man, just give him a call.
