IPOH, March 1 — No one knows how long octogenarian Choo Ken Tong has been making the five-foot way his home.

He was living on the side of the road until Pertubuhan Amal Ai Xin Fan Tong Ipoh advisor Kat W. Wong came upon him when she was delivering food to vagabonds at Jalan Toh Puan Chah in December.

“The shop owners asked us to help the 81-year-old as he had been staying there for quite some time,” she said.

Speaking to Malay Mail, Wong said she decided to bring Choo to a half-way house run by the organisation for shelter.
