A simple ceremony, held at the Ipoh General Hospital (Hospital Raja Permaisuri Bainun) on Wednesday, June 7, saw Tenby Schools Ipoh Interact Club presenting medical equipment worth RM30,000 as part of its initiative to fight cancer in children.

Funds to purchase the equipment were raised during a charity dinner held in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Greentown Ipoh in March.

The equipment, purchased from B. Braun, the world’s leading provider and manufacture of healthcare solutions, will allow for a safer infusion of chemo drugs to children.

“We from the paediatric department are truly grateful to students and parents of Tenby Schools Ipoh and the Rotary Club of Greentown Ipoh for making an effort to help children who suffer from cancer,” said Dr Aisyah Rivaii, the head of oncology.

Present to witness the presentation were Praenaay Bharadwaj, president of Tenby Schools Interact Club, Julia Halsperger and Khor Wan Wei, organising chairpersons, Bernie Victor and Siti Mariam, teacher advisors.

Representing Rotary Club of Greentown Ipoh was its president, Joe Anbalagan.
