Dr. G’s daughter, Siti, remains the sole caretaker for him within and outside of the prison walls since he was first arrested in 2017. 4 years down the road, Siti currently struggles to make ends meet with her job as a clerk in the remote town of Kuala Pilah, Seremban.
The bulk of Siti’s expenses and savings goes to the caretaking of Dr. G's expenses such as food and pocket money within the prison walls, and towards extensive travel costs to and fro court and prison located within Klang Valley and her home in Seremban. Also to note, Dr. G’s health has rapidly deteriorated since his arrest in 2017, which calls for medical expenses on top of the logistical and welfare fees that they are currently faced with. To paint a picture, ⅔ of Siti’s monthly income goes to the aforementioned expenses , leaving her barely enough to get by among rising costs while also battling extraneous pandemic and work related pressures.
We have managed to meet our goal with special thanks to Tengku Chanela Jamidah who hosted and organised a "Free Dr. G!" fundraising event in conjunction with her birthday on the 26th of May 2021 in the US. Tengku Chanela Jamidah's efforts has helped us raise 5000 USD overnight which has helped us to meet the crowdfunding goal for Dr. G and Siti. We will still be accepting donations until our collection period is over next year, so do continue to contribute and show your advocacy towards Dr. G and the #KajiBukanKeji cause as every little cent will help to alleviate financial pressures that are still faced by Dr. G and Siti until the day when they can finally be reunited outside of prison.
Help Siti and Dr. G today in acquiring the funds needed to support them through Dr. G's incarceration. If you would like to contact the fundraising team directly, please email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
