Manama: An Indian national living in Saudi Arabia was on Monday offered a car for his dedication to serving a senior Saudi citizen for two years for free.
The Indian who said he was born in Madinah 22 years ago drove the Saudi woman to hospital for dialysis three times a week, waited for her and then took her home without getting paid for his services.
The expatriate who speaks a fluent Saudi dialect did not have a car and borrowed one from his friends in order to be able to drive the Saudi woman or to get her breakfast in the morning.
The report was posted by a relative of the woman on Monday morning and within hours, businessman Saud Al Hajed, the head of Omyinitiative, a local NGO that promotes volunteer work, offered the car to the Indian national in recognition of his dedication and devotion.
The gift was announced by Saudi artist Fayez Al Malki who said he would go to Madinah to deliver the car personally to the Indian expatriate.
Social media users heaped praise on the Indian man for his act of charity and lauding his dedication to serving the old woman.
They also thanked Al Hajed for his compassionate thoughtfulness and generous act.
