KUCHING: Hope Place Kuching recently provided relief to a stroke patient longing for assistance.

The charitable non-governmental organisation (NGO) said Ting Keong Sieng had a stroke in April this year which left half of his body paralyzed and rendering him unable to support his family.

The 38-year-old is living in Batu Kawa with his wife, four children and his elderly mother.

“His eldest child has learning disability and is a people with disability (OKU) card holder receiving RM150 monthly from the Social Welfare Department.

“According to Ting, although his son is an OKU, he has helped a lot during his crucial recovery in the past few months,” it said in a statement yesterday.

Hope Place said Ting informed a week before his stroke, he received a job offer to work as a chef in Singapore.

Ting was so excited that he had prepared and paid for everything including air tickets, passport, and accommodation rent there.

“Unfortunately, all his dreams went down the drain when he had the stroke. Ting still often has epilepsy every now and again, but he continues with his physiotherapy and can walk without a cane,” it said.

Hope Place said Ting’s wife currently operates a hawker stall selling noodles to keep the family afloat.

However, she has to juggle between taking care of her children and husband.

“We are supporting the family with basic food aid until Ting is fully recovered and is able to find a stable job,” it added.
