Ailing elderly couple gets help
By:News Desk

KUCHING: A sick elderly couple who lived at Jalan Stephen Yong received immediate assistance from Hope Place with essential supplies.

The NGO received a call to help the elderly couple, Muniyandi Naransamy, 68, and his wife Rajeslosana, 63, who both have serious health problems.

According to Hope Place, Muniyandi is a retired fireman who had a stroke which left him bedridden and he also has diabetes.

His wife is a heart patient at the Sarawak Heart Centre, where she recently had a metal inserted in her broken leg and is still limping. The couple’s two adult children are currently working in the peninsula.

However, Rajeslosana is grateful to her cousin who helps with food and other necessities, as well as provide transportation for her husband to go to hospital.

She told Hope Place that their children seldom contact them. Her husband’s pension of only RM600 is insufficient for the couple to survive, with rent and medical expenses to pay.

The NGO is supplying adult disposable diapers for Rajeslosana’s husband. The couple is still waiting for the Social Welfare Department’s approval for financial aid which they had submitted earlier this year.

For more information, Hope Place or Persatuan Kebajikan Harapan Kuching (PKHK) can be reached at 082-505987. 

Its opening hours are from 8am to 5pm from Mondays till Fridays and 8am to 12pm on Saturdays.

All donations are welcome and receipts will be given upon request. Donations can be done directly to their bank account MBB: 511289001160 or go to their Facebook page to get the Sarawak Pay / S PAY GLOBAL QR code.
