KLFT MIC Youth donated wheelchairs Gerakan Batu arranged two poor families to be benefited from the goodwill Press statement by Gerakan Youth Secretary General Dr. Dominic Lau

Last Sunday (30 September), Kuala Lumpur Federal Territory MIC Youth (MIC Putera) organised an activity in Kuala Lumpur to donate wheelchairs to the disadvantaged groups, under the arrangement by Gerakan Batu Division, 2 poor families from Batu area were benefited in this activity.

Gerakan Youth Secretary General Dr. Dominic Lau who attended the activity said that one of the benefited families which is a hardcore poor Chinese family living in the Sri Kelantan PPR flat at Sentul has been constantly helped by Gerakan Batu Division. They live in an abject poverty, there are 4 children including a newborn baby in the family. The father is an odd-job worker, while the mother earns a living through the selling of lottery tickets, moreover there is an elderly grandmother in the family, at times it would even be difficult for them to have ordinary 3 meals per day, their eldest son has since forced to drop out of school.

“During our visit to the familiy, we found out that the electricity has been cut off for months, because the electricity bills have not been paid. The situation not just caused a lot of inconveniences but also affected the children’s academic revision. So far, Gerakan Batu Division managed to solve the electricity problem for this family and helped them to apply for welfare assistance in order to improve their living at the present, while the elderly grandmother was given a free wheelchair. At the same time, we also managed to help the eldest son to return to school and continue his studies,” said Dr. Dominic Lau.

Besides, Dr. Dominic Lau also added that these are the follow-up works by Gerakan Batu Division pertaining to the livelihood problems faced by the residents. Gerakan will continue to serve the residents of Batu parliamentary constituency, take care of the disadvantaged groups, solve their livelihood problems and improve their quality of life.
