How one Facebook post changed a family’s life

Just a few months ago, S Sukumarah and his family were struggling to survive on the meagre income the former security guard earned from washing cars. Then a Good Samaritan, Adi W Kamal, highlighted their plight on social media, and support came pouring in. Now, the family says their life has changed for the better, and they want nothing more than to thank the man who made it all possible.
