The story of 17-year-old Mohammad Aqil Khairan, which was published in the Ipoh Echo (issue 273), caught Econsave’s attention.
Econsave North 2 Operations Manager, Chua Yong Chiang said that help has been channeled to Mohammad Aqil Khairan via the Econsave Care (Econsave Prihatin) Programme aimed at helping families in need.
“Upon reading Mohammad Shakirin Abdul Rahman’s (Aqil’s father) heart-wrenching story published in Ipoh Echo recently, we decided to contribute daily necessities such as Ensure milk powder, Pampers products and groceries. The items are worth over RM1000.
“We hope this will lighten the burden of Mohammad Shakirin in taking care of his son who is in pain,” Chua told Ipoh Echo.
Mohammad Aqil Khairan is a Form 5 student sitting for SPM examination this year. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with bacterial infection in the brain six months ago and has since undergone seven surgeries at General Hospital Ipoh.
Mohammad Shakirin said the contribution would help reduce the monthly expenses of his family.
“I’m grateful to Econsave and all those who have donated money to my bank account,” he expressed.
Contributions can be channeled to MayBank account 1582 7503 7879 Fairull Hayati Khairul Anuwar (wife of Mohamad Shakirin) or to their home at: 15 Laluan Sentosa 3, Halaman Pengkalan Sentosa, 31500 Lahat, Perak.
