A 9-year-old primary school student wrote to Malaysia’s Health Director-General Dr. Noor Hisham Abdullah with a heartfelt message to commend him on his efforts against the spread of Covid-19. She offered as a gift, a loom band rendered in shades of blue.
In her letter, Lara Khadijah McAfee said she made the LoomBands as a sign of friendship and it was made a gesture of thanks to Dr. Noor Hisham and all the frontliners working in the healthcare services to help keep the people of Malaysia safe and healthy.
In response, Dr. Noor Hisham wrote an equally heart-warming response, encouraging the girl to study hard because,”One day, it will be your turn to help Malaysia.”
It was, to say the least, a meeting of minds.
