Baby Sam is an 11-month-old, Sri Lankan Tamil child who is registered as a Recognized Refugee under UNHCR. He experiences a global developmental delay, as verified by a paediatrician at Damai Service Hospital back in February 2020.
Since then, several investigations have been performed to identify the cause of the delay which includes a blood test, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and genetic molecular blood test.
Doctors now recommend that he undergo appointments with three departments, namely; Occupational Therapy, Ophthalmology and Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) for assessments on swallowing, sight and hearing respectively. The cost for each visit to the respective departments would be RM 60.00, after a 50% discount.
Unfortunately, his parents are unable to afford this medical bill.
Baby Sam's father is the sole breadwinner of the family, and he works part-time as a construction worker. He earns RM 70/day and works an average of three to four days a week. His mother is unable to work as she herself is diagnosed with psychiatric illnesses and chronic asthama.
Yayasan Chow Kit wants to help Baby Sam and his family so that they can provide the necessary medical attention and baby care for his condition. Therefore we are fundraising a total of RM 3,037.50. The breakdown of the fundraiser is as follows:
