A Nepali man working for the Philippines embassy in Doha has received a certificate of commendation after turning in a lost diamond ring.
According to a post on the embassy’s Facebook page, the ring belonged to a Filipina woman who accidentally left it in the building last week.
A member of the embassy’s cleaning crew, Sushil Kumar Thakur found the ring and handed it in.
“You are an inspiration to all the officers and staff of the Philippine Embassy in Doha,” the mission said.
The embassy did not specify how much the ring was worth, and whether Thakur was given a cash reward for turning in the jewelry.
A representative was not immediately available for comment.
Other selfless acts
This is not the first time residents in Qatar have been honored for random acts of kindness.
In April, an Ethiopian woman who worked as a cleaner for the Qatar National Convention Center was rewarded after turning in two diamond rings worth QR470,000 (US$129,000) that were left behind in a bathroom at the venue.
Andnet Zelekew, 32, received a cash award from convention center management for her honesty.
And last year, a Kenyan expat working as a laundry attendant at the InterContinental Doha The City was commended after quietly donating his entire month’s salary to support colleagues affected by a devastating typhoon in the Philippines.
Word spread about Hezron Jeremiah Onyango’s act of kindness and the 24-year-old was honored with an Unsung Hero award by the hotel chain.
