Who says there is no poverty in Malaysia?

Maybe for most city folk, they do not realise the plight of many others, but in reality, poverty is still rife in our country.

Take for example, this family of three who has nothing more than a makeshift hut to stay in.

This family lives along Jalan Lombong in Kota Tinggi in front of a temple, next to a water tank.

Their plight was highlighted by a Facebook user who invited anyone to drop by and lend them a helping hand.

I am not sure what their story is, but the reality of the situation is that many Malaysians are still in need.

It is pointless for us to go about helping neighbouring countries, when our own people need us.
