MyCare MyPrihatin Hargai Wira Negara Initiative
In mid Aug 2023, MACVA was approached by MyCare informing their intention to help some of our unfortunate members who need medical care and food stuff.
MyCare or Humanitarian Care Malaysia Bhd is a Non-Profit Org registered with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM No 729288-P since 2017. MyCare has been providing humanitarian aid mostly overseas until 2021 when the pandemic hit world wide. However, after 2021, MyCare started to look inwards helping the unfortunate Malaysians, veterans included.
For 2023, their objective is to provide medical assistance to three selected MACVA Veterans in conjuction with Hari Kemerdekaan and Hari Malaysia.
We have provided two names to MyCare. They are:
1. SSjn Lee Bok Kar RMAF who had one of his leg amputated below his knee due to infection. He has requested for a motorised wheelchair.
2. Mrs Mah Yew Khean, wife of the late WO2 Mah who left us on 2 Sep 23. She had two of her toes amputated due to chronic diabetic. She is also under dialysis three times a week, currently she is still under medical treated for her sore foot. She has requested for adult diaper, special milk powder, and other medical aid for her wound dressing.
Both the candidates were submitted by VP Army to MyCare for the board members' approval.
On 11 Sep 23, the MyCare team headed by the Senior Manager, En Kamarul Halim bin Sakrani and his Executive, En Muhamad Afiq Zharif together with the President of MACVA, Dato' Lee, VP Army, Carol Loo, Hon Sec, Tony Ho, Hon Treasurer, Mary Koh and CM Pui visited Lee Bok Kar at his home to witness the presentation. The cost of the wheelchair is closed to Rm3k. This wheelchair is on loan basis and shall return to MyCare if not in use.
On 24 Sep 23. The same team together with MACVA President and Hon Sec, visited Mrs Mah at her daughter's house to hand over the stuff requested and also presented cash of RM500.
On behalf of the President and members of MACVA, we, thank MyCare and it's team for the support given and hope this humanitarian efforts will continue to provide to the unfortunate veterans in the near future.
