"Thank you, ONE HOPE CHARITY, for assisting my son with a special wheelchair, making it easier for him to enter and exit the hospital. Thank you."

Navinraj A/L Rajagopal, a 22-year-old man from Sungai Petani, Kedah, has been diagnosed with Myelomeningocele With Hydrocephalus (spina bifida with hydrocephalus) since birth. He underwent brain shunt surgery at the age of 2.

Now at the age of 22, he has been living with inherited diabetes from a young age, and his legs have been malformed since birth, preventing him from walking or being self-reliant. He attended a special school for two years but subsequently stopped attending. At the age of 17, diabetes caused catheter blockage, leading to multiple organ problems, including a significant loss of vision in both eyes, with only 20% remaining.

Despite wearing a urinary bag, he needs to wear two adult diapers daily, change the urinary bag at the clinic every two weeks, and undergo regular check-ups at the neurology and nephrology departments every six months.

His 69-year-old father, Rajagopal, has been his primary caregiver for many years. His father had diabetes 30 years ago and had both legs amputated in 2014 and 2017. Currently, he uses a prosthetic right leg and sits in a wheelchair. They barely make ends meet every month with the assistance from the Welfare Department and kind-hearted individuals. The prosthetic leg was also provided with support from a social insurance institution.

After One Hope Charity received their request for assistance, One Hope Charity sent representatives to home visit. One Hope Charity decided to provide a special wheelchair and also offered food assistance to help them through their difficult times.
