His wife was deaf-mute and he was involved in a car accident. For many years, One Hope Charity had been helping the hapless family. But now, the deaf-mute wife has passed away due to cancer. One Hope Charity has followed her wishes and religious belief during her lifetime to provide funeral and burial assistances to the family.
Chin Kam On from Kedah was amputated after he met in an accident in 2000. Unfortunately, his deaf-mute wife, Khor Chai Ang was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2011. The couple finished all their savings on their medical treatment.
After the amputation, he was once become a beggar, but later he felt that it was not right to live by begging for money, so with the help of a friend, he started to sell ice creams in Kulim, Bukit Mertajam and also Selama in Perak.
Although his leg was amputated and his wife suffered from cancer, but he did not give up. The inspirational story of Kam On was reported by the media and it had attracted attention from the public. Therefore, One Hope Charity went for a home visit and decided to sponsor his prosthetic limb, so that he could move around more conveniently.
At the same time, as Kam On’s wife Chai Ang was diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and she had to use an ostomy bag for excretion. One Hope Charity also sponsored her ostomy, as well as several months of living expenses to reduce their financial burden.
Over the years, One Hope Charity had been continuously showing care to the Chin family. Their Indian adoptive son always got in touch with One Hope Charity and conveyed the couple’s need to One Hope Charity, especially the medical aids needed by his adoptive mother.
