A 65-year-old Chinese man was found weak near the roadside of Jalan Residensi in Penang Island during this year's Chinese New Year. An ambulance was called to take him to the hospital for treatment, but he died of pneumonia a few days later.

According to the hospital, the old man had no documents with him when he was sent to the hospital, and the hospital failed to compare the database due to the old man’s fingerprints were damaged, so it was impossible to notify the old man's family to come over and deal with his aftermath. The body remained in the hospital mortuary for more than three months.

The hospital then searched for the family members of the old man through media. This news was known by his homeless mate, so he informed the hospital of the identity of the old man through the undertaker.

The old man's name is Eng Ah Kaw, born in 1955, and his last address was in ​​the Love Lane area, Penang Island. However, since the family members could not be found, and his homeless mate was unable to deal with his death, ONE HOPE CHARITY gathered donations from 'Funeral & Burial Assistance Fund' to donate the coffin and funeral for him, and his ashes were later placed in the columbarium in Bukit Mertajam.
