Republic Polytechnic shared a post on LinkedIn about one of their students, Phoebe Lim, who was awarded the Caring Commuter Award.
She had noticed an elderly commuter who was having issues with his wheelchair and accompanied him home, even buying food for the elderly man.
She even visited him two days later to make sure that the elderly man was alright.
Republic Poly’s statement
How far would you go to help those in need?
When School of Sports, Health and Leisure student Phoebe Lim noticed an elderly commuter with mobility issues, she did not hesitate to help find him a wheelchair.
She then accompanied him to a place where he could sit and rest.
Phoebe even went the extra mile and bought food for the elderly before sending him home as she was worried to leave him alone.
The Diploma in Sport & Exercise student also visited the elderly two days later to ensure that he was alright.
For her initiative and act of kindness towards a fellow commuter in need, Phoebe was recognised as one of the eight winners of the Caring Commuter Award, now into its fourth edition.
Congratulations and well done, Phoebe! You’re truly a role model to all of us.
