They say that a little kindness goes a long way.

For a couple in Singapore, they showed this by rescuing a baby bat, which had been attacked by birds.

Meet Mabo

The couple posted a 35-second TikTok video (@new_to_singapore) on Apr. 2 showing how they stumbled across the bat.

Amandine and her boyfriend were on their way to breakfast when they spotted something "moving in the grass".

After checking it out, they realised that it was a baby bat.

They immediately called National Parks (NParks), who advised them to keep it in a container and informed them that they would come by to pick it up.

Amandine then carefully wrapped the bat in a jacket and carried it back home.

Back home, the couple made a makeshift home out of a takeaway container and a satay stick which they felt the bat would be more comfortable hanging from.

Amandine also said, "I'm sure he had a good time with us, but it's better that he goes where he belongs".

They also named the bat "Mabo", inspired by the takeaway container that the bat was kept in.

Shortly after NParks arrived and confirmed that Mabo was a "healthy baby"

Amandine then bid the bat goodbye.
