Since 2007, Y’s Men’s Club of Ipoh has been contributing a monthly allowance of RM400 to two brothers in Taman Buntong Jaya, Ipoh. The siblings are Patrick, 44, and Lourdes, 34, who were born with cerebral palsy.
Their plight was first highlighted by former Buntong state assemblyman, Dato’ Yik Phooi Hong in 2007. Patrick moves around in a wheelchair while Lourdes has to be spoon-fed and carried about, including trips to the toilet. Their mother passed away last year.
Readers who wish to assist the family, kindly contact their caretaker, Jean Antonie Francis at 016 427 9052.
Y’s Men’s Club of Ipoh will co-organise a blood-donation drive with Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital at Aeon Kinta City Shopping Centre, Ipoh in March. Members of the public are urged to donate their blood for a worthy cause. For details call the club’s honorary secretary, K. Letchimanan at 012 538 1939.
