MACVA AND MPMA BROUGHT COMFORT TO LT COL SOMAN SULAIMAN (RETIRED) RRD

MACVA's Welfare outfit MACVA Patient Mobility Assistance (MPMA) lead by its Founder SSgt Richard Lye Wah transported a double crank hospital bed from the MPMA warehouse located at the Charity Food Basket Society Klang to Lt Col Soman Sulaiman's house at Taman Melwati at 1.30pm today 4 August 2020.

Lt Col Soman Sulaiman (Retired) is bedridden and looks after by his wife, Puan Noorlina. Col Soman's plight was made known to MACVA on Saturday 1 August 2020 by Maj Gen Datuk Toh Choon Siang (Retired) and requested MACVA to assist in providing a hospital bed from MPMA.

MACVA discussed the request with Richard Lye on Monday 3 August 2020. In the evening Richard Lye confirmed the hospital bed will be delivered to the house of Col Soman today Tuesday 4 August 2020 at 2.00pm. The speed (less than 24 hours) in getting the appropriate bed suitable for the use of Col Soman by MPMA for delivery is highly commendable. MACVA would like to thank Datuk Toh for his generosity in picking up the transportation cost from Klang to Taman Melawati.

MACVA would also like to thank Maj Lasahi Laiji and Capt Mohd Amiruddin Mohd Nor from the Infantry Directorate and Deputy Director JHEV Selangor & KL present at the house to assist the delivery and installation of the bed. Also present to lend the helping hands are former colleagues of Col Soman and MACVA members.

This is the second welfare assistance carried out by MACVA in a week for veterans who are non-MACVA members. The motorised wheelchair for OKU Veteran Perang Cpl Abu Bakar Bin Abdul Manan was carried out on Friday 31 July 2020 at Sekinchan, Selangor.

MACVA is very pleased to be able to assist JHEV in extending its welfare service to veterans of the Malaysian Armed Forces.

MACVA would like to extend a special thank you to the MPMA team headed by Richard Lye and Mr Chew Song Kong, Founder/President of the Charity Food Basket Society Klang who took time off from his busy schedule to personally drive the delivery van. Their commitment to the welfare of veterans is a shining example for us to emulate.

MALAYSIAN ARMED FORCES CHINESE VETERANS ASSOCIATION (MACVA) AND MACVA PATIENT MOBILITY ASSISTANCE (MPMA) BROUGHT JOY TO OKU PERANG KPL ABU BAKAR BIN ABDUL MANAN ON THE HARI RAYA HAJI DAY 31 JULY 2020 AT SEKINCHAN, SELANGOR

How it started
The appeal by OKU Perang Kpl Abu Bakar Bin Abdul Manan, 66 years old, for a wheelchair was picked up from the JHEV chatgp around April 2020. When contacted, Abu Bakar said he already received a normal wheelchair from JHEV. He needs an motorised wheelchair which is beyond his means with his small pension. The reason for a motorised wheelchair is that he has to undergo dialysis thrice(3X) a week and his wife who is suffering from knee problems is not able to assist him.

Background of Abu Bakar and the incident
Abu Bakar passed out from Recruit Training Centre in 1973 and posted to 13 RAMD. While attending the Recruit Cadre Course in the Regiment in 1974 he along with 24 others trainees were tasked to deploy immediately to be the cut off party following a contact. He was the leading scout. His Platoon Commander who was immediately behind him stepped on a land mine (booby trap) and Abu Bakar’s two legs were injured by the splinters. He pleaded with the doctor to save his right leg which was severely injured.

The doctor told him his right leg might suffer from gangrene in the later years and may have to be amputated. He took the risk. He retired in 1995 became a fisherman. His right leg began to have severe pain and he started taking the pain killer which eventually damaged his kidneys and had to undergo dialysis. In 2011, he underwent the amputation on his right leg due to the gangrene. The doctor had to carry out a couple of surgeries to finally stop the gangrene from spreading. His right leg left only 6 inches from the torso after the final amputation.

He was given an artificial limb but due to the shortness of the right leg after the amputation, the artificial limb caused discomfort and created blisters. His movement became very restrictive and he started to gain weight.

The hunt for a second hand motorised wheelchair
Abu Bakar requested not to pursue with the motorised wheelchair if it is too costly but was told that I will try my best to assists him. Help was I seek from SSgt Richard Lye of MPMA to source for a second hand motorised wheelchair. Luck was with us, in a short period of less than a week Richard Lye managed to find one few months old used motorised wheelchair which is in excellent condition.

A private donation drive was launched on 28 July 2020 to raise the fund to purchase the motorised wheelchair. A sum of RM5,400.00 was raised in four (4) days from caring MACVA members and their civilian friends. The sum was sufficient to purchase the second hand motorised wheelchair.

Delivery of the motorised wheelchair to Abu Bakar
We decided to give Abu Bakar a surprise by informing him that we are visiting him on the Hari Raya Haji Day 31 July 2020 without informing that his dream motorised wheelchair will be presented to him.

The journey to Sekinchan was quite eventful. We were in two vehicles, a van and a car. On the way to Kuala Selangor, we encounter a flash flood and only vehicle with two feet clearance was able to cross. The van managed to cross the flooded stretch but we had to detour which took nearly one extra hour to reach Sekinchan.

The joy of seeing an OKU Perang receiving his dream motorised wheelchair
Abu Bakar and family members were extremely happy to receive us. It was like meeting old friends. Abu Bakar told us about the visits by the RAMD senior officers including his Company Commander who became a Brig Gen. The caring visits took place in between the donation drive.

Abu Bakar and his family members were overwhelmed with joy when the motorised wheelchair was brought into the house. The family members were shown how to operate the motorised wheelchair by Mr Chew Song Kong, Founder/President of the Charity Food Basket Society Klang, Selangor.

The joy of seeing Abu Bakar trying out the motorised wheelchair was something we will always remember.

Abu Bakar was told the motorised wheelchair is the property of MPMA and is on loan to him for use. The motorised wheelchair is to be returned to MPMA when no more in use.

Appreciation
The President and all members of MACVA would like to extend our profound gratitude and ribuan terima kasih to the following people for making the dream of OKU Perang Abu Bakar a reality:
1. 34 donors (List attached)
2. Mr Chew Song Kong - Founder/President Charity Food Basket Society Klang, Selangor
