Baby in dire need of help to stay alive

2009/11/20

KUALA LUMPUR: After 10 years of trying to conceive and four miscarriages later, Wan Suriyana Wan Aziz was finally blessed with her bundle of joy.

However, her month-old daughter, Nur Ayunie Damia Aisyah Mohd Zuki, has been diagnosed with transposition of the great arteries — a congenital heart defect.

Nur Ayunie is in a life threatening situation and needs urgent arterial-switch operation which is estimated to cost about RM30,000.

The 30-year-old mother is a homemaker and suffers from severe diabetes.

She needs two insulin jabs per day while her rubber-tapper husband, Mohd Zaki Jusoh, 32, earns a meagre income of only RM300 per month.

“When I was told she was sick, I was so disheartened that I could not stop crying,” Wan Suriyana said in between tears.

She added that due to the rainy weather in Kelantan, her husband had to stop tapping rubber for the time being.
“I am only hoping for my daughter to get well because she is still a baby,” Wan Suriyana said.

“There were days when I felt really hopeless but my husband rallies me on with his strength and prayers,” she added.

Those who wish to help, please send a cheque payable to New Straits Times Sdn Bhd with the child’s name written on the back to Cashier/Charity Unit, New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd, Balai Berita, 31, Jalan Riong, 59100 Kuala Lumpur.

Last year, when my father had a surgery at a hospital. I went to the hospital everyday. So everyday I saw many scenes that made me wanna cry. Not because some touching scenes but because they weren’t noticed by us. Plus we don’t even care. So now we have the chance to care and make the world a better place.

Let’s beat them

It was spectacular. I’ve wrote before about ‘Jelajah Malaysia 2008’ and how i envied their mental and physical strength. But this is even more than that, here is the article I took from NST.

A showcase of special talent

2009/11/09

KUALA LUMPUR: It was no ordinary marathon when about 400 disabled people took part in the 16th Annual Charity Walk, Jog or Wheel-a-thon at Dataran Merdeka here yesterday.

The event, organised by the Spastic Children’s Association of Selangor and Federal Territory (SCAS & FT), was held in conjunction with its golden jubilee celebrations.

A percussion band, comprising members with cerebral palsy, showed off their mettle, while children with CP participated in a race that demonstrated routine exercises, such as walking with a walker and crawling through a cardboard box.

“These exercises may be easy for most children, but they are a challenge for those with cerebral palsy. However, the children do them with a smile,” said SCAS & FT president Datuk Dr Lam Peng Chong.

The highlight of the event was a dance performance by Reizo Zen, dubbed Malaysia’s Michael Jackson. Zen mimed and danced to three songs from the HIStory album.

Lam said 30 non-governmental organisations and sponsors raised RM350,000 for the charity walk. Part of the funds will go towards the association’s redevelopment programme.

“The redevelopment programme involves replacing our 50-year-old building with a six-storey block, at a cost of between RM12 million and RM16 million.

“We will be able to enrol more children into therapy programmes and provide better training facilities, a dormitory, an auditorium and an exhibition hall,” Lam said.

Women, Family and Community Development Minister Senator Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil pledged RM50,000 in aid after launching the event yesterday.

Winners to one of the disabled=We have normal bodies and such, sometimes don’t bother about charity marathon. So I think we should take them as exemplary.

Play golf, save an orphan – Raja Nong Chik

Raja Nong Chik attended a charity golf tournament at the Tasik Putri Golf & Country Club on last Saturday. Well, actually I think it is not a bad idea. And the tournament managed to raise RM30,000? Wow! Indeed, it’s much more valuable than a normal RM30,000 to the orphans in Rumah Ilham Yayasan Anak Yatim, an orphanage in Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

Charity Golf Tournament, Creative Idea To Raise Funds For Orphans – Raja Nong Chik

Direct giving away money is not the only way to help people in need, but with this kind of activity, many things can be archieved. Sometimes we heard about celebrities attended charity conserts, and that’s their way to show their concerns. And the rich people can show their concerns thru this activity.
