When asked why he choose to help the prisoners when he was a struggling hawker, Jeremiah said, “I gave the prisoners money out of pity, Though I am very poor and sell pure water, I still have my Freedom, I can eat whatever I want to eat and go anywhere I want to go, but the prisoners do not have that freedom.” Watch here
