Recently, a young boy showed how one’s age isn’t a barrier to helping others too.

Twitter user @nurassyaheera uploaded several pictures showing volunteers helping flood victims. She even highlighted the youngest volunteer to chip in.

Age is not a barrier. Kudos to the youngest volunteer.

Twitter user @nurassyaheera wrote in the caption.

The photo showed a young boy wearing a red t-shirt belonging to a volunteer group and yellow rubber boots.

In the other photos, he could be seen cleaning and shovelling mud into a wheelbarrow from the houses of flood victims.

Twitter user @nurassyaheera told World of Buzz that the boy is a friend’s nephew who initially posted the photos on Facebook.

Netizens sang praises but also voiced their concerns

Netizens praised the boy and his parents for raising him well. A few even asked for parenting tips from his parents.

Despite all the praises, there are some who expressed their worries too. They’re worried that the boy is exposed to all the filth in the floodwater.

Netizens also advised him to take precautions and to be careful. They also reminded him to ask for help from the adults if the tasks are difficult.

Although it’s great to see the young boy wanting to help, another netizen said it’s also child labour.

According to a tweet, the young boy has been following his dad to do volunteering work since he was young.

His father wants him to learn how to give back to society when he grows up.

Keep up the good work, young man!
