Baby Needs Help

If you own New Straits Times newspaper, please go to the page 20 (Cross-country section) and read the article titled "Heart Baby Seeks Funds"
(source : News Straits Times, Friday, October 1, 2010)

Heng Wang Yi-Wu's birth on April 27 was a blessing as his parents had wanted a boy after two daughters.
But the joy was shortlived as doctors discovered soon after that he had a heart problem that needed URGENT surgery besides suffering from Down's syndrome.
Heng, who was born two months pre-mature suffers from large Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) also known as a hole-in-the-heart.
His mother, Fong Kwai Kung, 46, said she and her husband, Kiang Seng, 43, needed financial help to send their son for Gleneagles Intan Medical Centre in Ampang.
She said her family could not raise the RM35,000 needed for the operation.
Kiang Seng, 43, earns RM2000 a month as a stationary storekeeper.
Fong said she had been giving full attention to her son since his problem was detected by doctors.
"He is also suffering from pneumonia. He has always had breathing difficulty"

Donors can send cheques payable to The New Straits Times Press (M) Bhd
with Heng's name (Heng Wang Yi-Wu) written on the reverse side to the Cashier, Finance Department/Donation Unit,
New Straits Times Press, Balai Berita,
31, Jalan Riong,
59100, Kuala Lumpur.

Do help the poor baby.
