The truck driver has severe diabetes, both feet have been amputated, his wife needs to care for him and cannot work, and they have a 15-year-old daughter. The three-person family lives in poverty, relying on the welfare department and the social insurance agency to make ends meet.

ONE HOPE CHARITY dispatched a team to the home after receiving a call for assistance. Tan Swee Kiat, 58, of Butterworth, was diagnosed with diabetes nine years ago and was on medication to control his condition. He quit his job and lived on government assistance after his left foot was amputated in 2014.

His wife took care of him at home and cleaned his wound after his right foot was amputated in the middle of this year. They have a 15-year-old daughter as well. Last year, ONE HOPE CHARITY gave her a tablet computer, allowing her to take online classes from home during the epidemic.

Following a home visit and review, ONE HOPE CHARITY decided to assist him in cleaning the wound medicine, diapers and food to help reduce the family's financial burden.
