Last Sunday, when I met Meng-Hong, he told me about a tragedy happened in a family whom he and his parents know for long. The news was published in the Sin Chew Daily last week. Then Meng-Hong did the favor of explaining the family’s situation and gave me a copy of the paper with the news. The previous post in Chinese published here was the news about the tragedy and I did a simple summary:
Two months ago, a 37 year old mother, Wang Yue-Fang collapsed during feeding her 5 month-old baby. She then felt in to a coma and the family was worry about her. Since then the scene of the happy family bacame to sorrow.
Before the tragedy happened, Wang was a responsible and hardworking housewife who took good care of her three children and household. She was in good health without any serious illness and the family lived a happy life until the sudden tragedy happened which turned everything the other way round.
Wang was admitted to the hospital immediately for emergency treatment after she had collapsed and was nearly died during the treatment. However she survived and remained unconscious in intensive care unit for 5-6 days and eventually lying in coma.
According to the doctor, Fang suffered from cerebral anoxia, and the condition wasn’t optimistic as the chance of recovery was low. The bill for the treatment before Fang discharged from the hospital hit RM130,000. This turned to be a big problem for Xue who worked as chicken rice seller in a night market. He could not afford to pay the full sum so the only thing he could do was to borrow money from relatives and friends in order to pay the bill.
Now the Wang’s familystaying in Taman Muzaffar Shah is facing a hard time. Dealing with family crisis is one of the hardest things, yet her husband Xue Shun-An (38 year-old) never gave in to the cruel fate. He continued to seek for help and take care of the ill wife and three children.
On the other hand, Xue has to take care of the wife everyday, doing mucus suction at least 10 times a day, and tube-feeding of liquid food for Wang who couldn’t devour any food. The medicine and medical equipment for daily usage are costly. Taking care of Wang however, affects Xue’s working hours and making the living of their family even tougher.
Although the welfare officer, Wang Shi-Niang visited the family and assisted them to apply for monthly welfare support of RM300, it’s still insufficient and more aids are needed. The MCA Bukit Katil Division Chairman, Yang Huan-Yuan said that they had opened a joint name account of three names to receive donation and funding from public, and one of the names is Wang’s husbang, Xue Shun-An. The MCA Melaka State Legal Bureau Chairman, Wang Miao-Xia said MCA will continue monitor the account to ensure its transparency and proper use for Wang’s medical and living expenses.
Donation of public can be made to the joint name account for helping Wang:
Bank: Public Bank
Account name: Seet Soon Ann
Account number: 3164127807
