Great Heart Online Helping Hand – Case 5:
Lim Chin Gee is a 49-year-old father with kidney disease and heart failure. His wife and 24-year-old daughter are waiters in Big mouth Restaurant, Bandar Botanic. Working for about 12 hours a day, they only earn RM1,200 and RM1,700 respectively. He also has a younger daughter who is 16-year-old. With a good grade, she managed to get a scholarship for her study in an independent secondary school.
Currently, they are living above shop lots. The family used to run a small mobile shop 10 years ago, but it was closed down due unprofitable months of business. After Lim was diagnosed with kidney failure, he is unable to work since then to support the family. Fortunately, Lim has subsidy from SOCSO, in which the cost of his dialysis treatment was reduced to RM160 a month. However, the family is still facing difficulties in supporting their household expenses such as rent, transportation, transportation and daily necessities.
Great Heart Charity Association decided to help Lim with RM160 in dialysis subsidy every month and will be assigning social worker to purchase RM300 worth groceries for the family every month. This support will be lasted for a year, from September 2018 until August 2019. As such, Great Heart Charity Association hopes to fund raise RM5,520 (RM460 x 12 months) to support and to reduce the financial burden of the family.
