KUALA LUMPUR, May 17 — A social media influencer managed to raise US$230,000 (RM1.01 million) for an Uber driver who helped her.The two sides met outside Paris as part of the Trade and Technology Council, a forum created last year aimed partially at countering China’s increasingly powerful position in the technology sector.Becca Moore started a GoFundMe to help Raul Torres pay family medical bills and other expenses after Torres sacrificed his day to help her, USA Today reported.Analysts are of the view that Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob voicing Malaysia’s firm stand on the Ukraine-Russia conflict, as well as issues involving Palestine, Myanmar and the South China Sea during the Asean-US Special Summit chaired by President Joe Biden in Washington DC recently, was the right move.The 23-year-old Moore from Ohio was visiting California for the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival where she lost her mobile phone, credit card and rental car keys.In its final statement, the council accused Russia of an “all-out assault on the truth” in Ukraine and promised an “early response framework” to tackle disinformation in future crises.The next day, Moore got into an Uber ride driven by Torres, who noticed the woman’s distraught look.

He stopped driving Uber for the day and offered to wait for Moore while she got a new phone at a shop.“We see the damage from the Russian invasion spreading across the world,” said Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition.He also helped Moore to look for her phone which contained her credit card after successfully tracking the device down.Before leaving, Moore had dinner with Torres where it was revealed his 18-year-old daughter was diagnosed with cancer which made Moore decide to help him.The council said its work had already been instrumental in limiting exports of advanced technology in aerospace and cyber-surveillance to undermine Russia’s war effort.Since starting the GoFundMe on April 28 with a modest target of US$1,000 (RM4,391), the fund has since reached US$233,000.“It hit US$1,000 in one hour and then US$100,000 (RM439,100) in 24 hours,” Moore said.“Companies from the European Union and the United States do not have prominent positions in the supply chain,” said the final statement on rare earth magnets, vital for tech products including electric vehicles.

“That was the most insane thing ever.I still can’t believe it.” The forum pledged to give the chip industry the maximum possible subsidies.” Torres’ father also had cancer and passed away the day after the fundraiser went live, Moore said.Torres reportedly said he almost did not accept the ride.The forum also announced an “early warning system” for disruptions in the supply of semiconductors, substances used to make chips, hoping to avoid excessive competition between Western powers.He was looking to make some extra money for his daughter’s treatment.

The money raised by Moore will help the family cover outstanding medical bills and other expenses.The aim is that “as both Washington and Brussels look to encourage semiconductor investment in our respective countries, we do so in a coordinated fashion and don’t simply encourage a subsidy race”, a US official said separately, speaking on condition of anonymity.You May Also Like.
