A housewife is urgently seeking funds for an operation for her husband's who suffering from chronic pancreatitis.

According to Malaysiakini, the surgery for C. Tinesh Kumar, 39, at the Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC), is expected to cost RM75,000.

Tinesh's wife R. Devasundari, also 29, told the portal that her husband first sought treatment for the condition at the Selayang Hospital in Kuala Lumpur, after which they were referred to a semi-government hospital to perform a surgery costing about RM35,000.

She managed to raise the said fund, but unfortunately, the semi-government hospital could not perform the much-needed surgery due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.

"In this situation, I had no choice but to seek treatment for my husband at a private hospital because he has been sufffering for a long time," the housewife, who does part-time food catering to make ends meet, told the portal.

The couple have three children aged between nine and 13.

Devasundari said the surgery at SJMC had to be performed the soonest possible as her husband's condition has worsened to the point that his body weight has dropped to 40kg.

She is now at wit's end on how to collect the RM75,000 needed for the surgery, which is more than the amount she had collected before.

"I appeal to the public to help save my husband. I am truly helpless at this point."
