63岁的 Gopal a/l Sinnthamby 老先生被诊断出患有末期肾病，也患了很严重的糖尿病，导致他右脚的截肢。他的妻子在这4年内用了自己的公积金来支撑家庭开销。
Great Heart Online Helping Hand – Case 17:
Gopal a/l Sinnthamby is a 63-years old man who is not only diagnosed with end stage renal failure (ESRF), but also suffers from severe diabetes that has forced his right leg to be amputated.
During the last 4 years, his wife’s EPF savings were spent completely to support their daily expenses. The senior couple has no children. Due to the fact that Gopal worked as a contract lorry driver when he was young, he is not eligible to receive any SOCSO or EPF benefits.
Currently, they are relying on Department of Social Welfare (JKM) monthly allowance of RM300 to cover their daily food expenses. Other government welfare subsidies for which he is eligible are not enough to fully cover his dialysis fee that requires more than RM 1600 monthly.
As a compassionate and responsible charity organisation, Great Heart Charity Association has decided to reduce Gopal’s financial burden by giving a subsidy of RM1,000 per month for 6 months to cover part of his dialysis treatment expenses, beginning from September 2019 to February 2020.
Total fundraising target: RM6,000
