after they received a donation of RM15,000 raised by teachers and students
of SJK (C) Sin Kang in Air Itam.
As a result of the treatment, Lau is no longer able to attend school.
Her plight drew the attention of her school SJK(C) Sin Kang in Air Itam, and the teachers and students raised RM15,000 within 10 days for her.
“I feel thankful for the generosity as we are facing hardship with the family expenses,” said Lim at a press conference at the school premises here yesterday.
The teachers and students also raised another RM15,000 during the same period for another student Kelly Au Hoey Min’s father, Au Kong Soon, 49, who was diagnosed with nose and throat cancer in January.
Au’s wife Gan Mimi, 35, expressed relief with the donation as they had four young children to support.
“My husband can’t work as he is now hospitalised and undergoing treatment,” she said.
State Town and Country Planning, Housing and Arts Committee chairman Wong Hon Wai also donated RM1,500 from his Air Itam state constituency fund to each family.
