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.
Good Job Sushil. Nepalese have been known around the world for their honesty, bravery and hard-work. Hats off to you.
Is this the only article for the day?
It is a very quiet summer in Qatar. Probably time for another QAWS story or 2022 bribery.
Make sure you do such action for Name and Fame.
If done you will get no reward from God.
What rewards does God normally hand out? A new iPhone perhaps?
‘God’ hands out the ‘right to live’ waiver. Apparently.
never existed before 100 years nor will exist after 100 years . I have no time to waste time in debates, vain talks and disputes, nor
indulging in luxury. But I help the poor and do good to my parents. Allah is
not the God of Muslims only but all
people, all that exists, existed and will exist. Quran is from God and
God’s Intelligence, not written by Muhammed (Peace and Blessings of Allah be
upon our Beloved Prophet). The prophet was sent as a mercy to mankind. I am thankful to God, He gave me
free, the air I breathe, the water I drink, fruits and vegetables I eat, most
importantly my Life that I enjoy. To God belongs the Heavens and the Earth. My life is a continuos exam until you meet my Creator when he Questions my actions. If I did good things to show people, I fail. I see many People reject God
but can they escape Death. Dont forget you are nearing your grave every second. Be wise and be Thankful.
By all means, keep your faith in your God. I have absolutely no issue with that. But also, I would appreciate if you did not try to ‘convert’ others to do the same. I understand that you do so in good faith, but I am sure that you are able to understand if other people are not inclined to subscribe to your personal beliefs. Thank you.
Apparently he hands out the good stuff and if you have been bad in his eyes he damns you to burn in excruciating pain for eternity. Hardly the most merciful and loving of Gods….

Only your first sentence is correct but don’t argue that you God is mine. He doesn’t respresent me or billions on this planet.
New to DN? Don’t reply to the MIHM’s. Ever. They jump on a host and then multiply like flesh-eating bacteriae. Do not lower your standards to it. You cannot teach an old troll new tricks.
Jesus H Christ. Just stop. Go rustle someone else’s jimmies.

Why is a Nepalese man working at the Filipino Embassy? Is the job beneath Filipinos now?
Why do you have an issue with that? Is it causing an itch in your a*se?
It just seems strange, why wouldn’t they employ one of their own? Does the Indian embassy have Pakistani cleaners? I doubt it very much.
Not strange at all. There was a vacancy. This man applied or the company he works for provided him for the job. End of story.
But please, choo choo, all aboard the casual racism train!
I don’t know how you consider it racism, must be a funny dictionary you use.
Anyway, isn’t the Filipino Embassy here to support the Filipino population? I would have thought offering them jobs would be one good way to help, as there are plenty of Filipinos cleaning toilets in Qatar so they clearly have the right experience.
Your comment is quite offensive.
First assuming that they feel the job is beneath them with no basis for your assumption.
Then claiming that they have the “right experience”, you don’t need to have experience to clean toilets anyone has the ability to clean toilets if they need to.
Your comment is condescending as if you feel you need to put Filipinos in their place or something?!
Maybe it is simply cheaper and more convenient to outsource a cleaner here than to bring someone from the Phillipines and pay for all the fees and allowances that come with sponsorship.You don’t see male Filipinos as cleaners in Qatar because that would require paying them more.
Likewise most if not all embassies hire non-essential staff locally. Secretaries, security and other admin aren’t bought from the homecountry.
I get (from your previous comments) that you have something against the Phillipines’ government /politicians/embassy but you are grasping at straws this time.
That’s the point, you don’t need experience for this job and they’re literally millions of Filipinos who want work. The Phil embassy should look after their own first. It’s not as if Qatar wants nationals to fill positions cleaning toilets and embassies.
Lonely man, nice try with the bait there. Next…
Thank you very much Sushil, Andnet and Hezron… honesty, a good heart brings honor to our job no matter what work we are in.
Ah, fixed it (thanks for reading to the end of the story, btw :D)
i’m not sure this latest story or the returning of the two diamond rings were selfless act, or random acts of kindness?!?!
I would suggest these should be congratulated on their honesty and integrity. ‘Surprising acts of honesty’ would be a more accurate tagline as a lot of people would assume the easier option would be to keep the articles and benefit off them in some way.
