It has been scorching hot these days and such unforgiving weather can make life harder for those who work outdoors.

After noticing migrant workers toiling under the hot sun while doing reroofing work at his block, one resident decided to send some appreciation to them.

In a Facebook post on May 26, one Kelvin Tan wrote that he bought the workers a hearty meal.

Prior to that, Tan had also attempted to get to know the team better despite some language barrier as they would walk past his unit to get to the rooftop.

From the photos Tan shared on Facebook, he took away some food from an Indian Muslim stall, and placed chilled bottles of Coke and slices of watermelon in a styrofoam box filled with ice for the workers.

This was to thank them for "making [his] life here better" with this small token of appreciation.

Tan said:

"It didn’t take me a lot of effort or money to do this (i.e. no big deal), and it’s really just a small token of my appreciation for these migrant workers who make my life here better."
