Food delivery riders pound the road daily to deliver food to us so that we could avoid making unnecessary trips outdoors where we might contract or spread the coronavirus.

Beside dealing with dangers of being on the road, they also face high risk of being infected with the coronavirus through each contact that they come into.

I captured photographs of them going through the scorching heat and some of the challenging situation in their daily hustles as a form of salute to these silent heroes.

We are safer due to their selflessness contributions :)
