Donation made to KASIH // 捐献爱滋病援助协会(KASIH)


The KK MP Office handed over a sum of RM3,000 to the Sabah Aids Support Service Association (KASIH) in their shelter home in Kapayan, and to receive the money was Madam Agnes Khaw, the Vice president of the association.

The money was raised by the DAP members together with the staffs of the Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament office, during the night market just before the eve of the Chinese New Year. The goods on sale were all donated by kind hearted people who like to help and support the Aids victims which are unfortunate people of various ages. Some very young children are also victims to the deadly virus.

MP Hiew thanked those who had donated to the sale in cash and kinds, and he said although it is not a big sum collected but it is the gesture that counts. Our society needs more people who have a kind heart to care for others especially for those in need. He said the KASIH home is self supporting and they really need public donation and support. Agnes expressed her great appreciation to DAP and KK MP Office for raising the money for them. She said this money can help them very much. She said if any one who wish to make kind donation to their home, they can contact KASIH at 088-712914 or call Agnes at 016-8441248.

MP Hiew also hopes that the Ministry of Health should look into making more facilities to help those Aids victims by providing them with the lodgings, transportation and medical care while they have to travel far from their kampong to Kota Kinabalu hospitals for treatment. This people can not afford all this expenses and they have to seek help from KASIH. The KASIH centre is a temporary home for them while they are in KK.

邱国会议员非常感谢所有捐出现金及各种物品的善心人士,他说,虽然这不是一笔很大的数目,最主要的是大家乐意付出一点心意和关心。我们的社会需要更多这样的人去关心有需要帮助的病人,特别是贫困的爱滋病患者。他说KASIH之家是私立中心,因此他们非常需要善心人士的捐赠和支持。爱妮丝说,她非常感谢沙行动党和亚庇国会议员办事处为他们筹款。她说这笔钱可以帮助病人。 她说,如果任何人想要捐钱给他们,可以联络KASIH办事处088-712914,或致电给爱妮丝的手机016-8441248

邱国会议员也希望卫生部应该考虑设立更多设施来帮助有需要的病患,以提供他们住宿,交通和医疗,尤其是那些从内陆甘榜长途跋涉前往亚庇医院接受治疗的爱滋病患者。由于这些人无法支付费用,因此他们寻求KASIH的帮助。 当他们前来亚庇进行治疗期间,KASIH之家提供他们临时的住宿和膳食。
