KUCHING: Hope Place has come forward to provide basic necessities to a middle-aged man who suffered physical injury after getting into a car accident.
According to the non-governmental organisation (NGO), Timothy Richard Augustine, 41, had a car accident at Jalan Bau in September and had lost some of his memory including injuries on his right arm and is now disabled and unable to work.
“Timothy does not have any immediate family. He used to live with his mother for years and had an ordinary life working as a salesman, selling sports and gym equipment but ever since the accident and his mother’s passing last year, everything changed.
“He is now unable to speak cohesively or answer questions properly. He has totally forgotten what exactly happened on that fateful day,” it said in the statement.
It added that because of Timothy’s serious condition, his aunty, Chan who lives quite far away, had to quit her job and moved in with Timothy in Jalan Semeba to take care of him.
“It is unsure whether Timothy’s memory loss will be permanent or not, however, his aunt is hoping for the best,” it said.
Hope Place is helping because both Timothy and his aunty do not have any income now. It is supplying them with basic food aid and some household necessities.
