Malay Mail In time of need, compassion can be a rare commodity.
But this was not the case with the staff of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital (HUKM) who went beyond the call of duty to help the wife of a Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) security guard who was injured in a sub-station explosion on Jan 22.
Wan Affendi Wan Ali, 25, suffered 50 per cent burns when the sub-station exploded in Bukit Changgang.
His wife, Fauziah Arbangi, 25, said nurses and doctors from the burns unit passed the hat around to help her. Fauziah, who has been sleeping at the burns unit the past five nights, said the staff would chip in daily to buy her breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“The nurses also brought me some change of clothes from their homes. I want to go home and see my kids but I don’t have the money for transportation,” said the homemaker as she fought back tears.
She said her parents were taking care of her two children, aged three and five, at their family home in Banting.
Fauziah is also three months pregnant.
Her spirits were lifted when she received a RM2,000 donation from the American International Assurance (AIA) yesterday.
Its vice-president of corporate communications department, Mala Patmarajah, told The Malay Mail that the donation was for the family’s immediate expenses.
