Whither the Plan to overcome Deprivations
Posted October 10, 2007on:
This is Aini.
She is due to be operated on a week after Hari Raya. Her stomach has grown to a huge ball of about one foot in radius. All the time she can only lie on her side.
The illness began more than a year ago.
The fear of not being able to pay the medical bills shun her from pursuing a medical treatment and resort to bomohs and other kampung remedies. Such thinking is not uncommon among rural folks and the haves-not. Some of them go blind in old age, developed other incapacities and suffered illnesses without receiving proper medical treatment.
Let us pray in that her operation will be successful and Aini will once again lead a normal life.
