The story of two siblings who suffer from a chronic illness, which was published in Ipoh Echo Issue 235 (May 16 to 31), got the attention of local supermarket chain, Econsave Ipoh.
Zamzuri Mansor, Econsave’s Northern Region Manager said that Econsave’s Care Programme 2016 caters for those who face hardship. Assistance in the form of food products amounting to RM1000 will be given to the selected recipient.
“Ipoh Echo’s article on Rohfizan Abd Karim and his two kids touched our hearts so we picked him to be the recipient,” said Zamzuri. “This is Econsave’s sixteenth donation using the programme funds. Hopefully, our gifts will help lighten the burden of those in need,” he added.
Rohfizan’s second child, Nur Iman Nasuha, five, suffers from leukemia but is at an early stage while his youngest son, Fitri Firdaus, who is just five months old, has problems with his spinal cord since birth. Due to this, his right leg is disabled.
As a father who wants nothing but the best for his children, Rohfizan expressed his gratitude to Econsave Ipoh for the assistance. “I wish to thank Econsave for coming to our aid. I am glad that there are many good people around who care for their fellow beings,” he added.
