The head of the household used to support his wife and child with meager income as a lorry driver. However, unexpectedly severe diabetes forced him to have both legs amputated, rendering him incapable of work. The family of three now relies on social insurance and assistance from the Welfare Department to make ends meet.

Tan Swee Kiat (59 years old) from Butterworth had worn a prosthetic leg after the amputation of one leg. His friends even fundraised to buy a three-wheeled OKU motorcycle for him, hoping he could find alternative work with it. Unfortunately, his other leg later had to be amputated due to worsening diabetes.

His wife is a homemaker, and they have a 16-year-old daughter. The family's livelihood depends solely on the assistance they receive.

Upon receiving their plea for help, our foundation sent representatives for a home visit and assessment. Afterward, a decision was made to provide them with food supplies and diapers to alleviate their burden.
