Kind-hearted Malaysians have come to the rescue of a family of three which was driven to live in their beat-up car after being evicted from their rented home.
Grace Edward, 37, and her family can now breathe a sigh of relief as the money raised have enabled them to rent a flat in Sri Cempaka in Puchong, pay outstanding debts, and purchase basic necessities.
"Now we can sleep soundly knowing there is a roof over our heads.
"I never imagined that we would receive so much help. I am overwhelmed by the support," she told news portal Free Malaysia Today (FMT), which first highlighted her predicament earlier this week.
The family's predicament began when Edward, her husband Kumar Subramaniam, also 37, and their six-year-old son, were evicted from their rented home in Puchong on June 29 for failing to make rent, and forced to move into their beat-up Proton Iswara.
Kumar had faced difficulties securing a job after his motorycle accident two years ago, and the meagre RM100 he earned a month from doing auto repairs, was spent on petrol and food.
In addition, Edward also had to consistently be at the hospital to attend to her aged mother who suffered from a series of medical complications, including long Covid symptoms.
However, they can now put their sufferings behind, as the money raised from well-wishers have not only enabled them to pay outstanding rent at the old home, as well as the deposit and first month rent for the new house, but also buy furniture and necessities.
Edward also has enough funds now to look after her mother, send her son to school, and to realise her dream of starting a nasi lemak business.
Several MPs and NGOs have also reportedly visited them, and Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo has promised to find Kumar a job, and a school for the boy.
A very good news indeed. Kudos Malaysians for your timely assistance!
