Dear Friend,

Mr Chen Jun Liang was just like any other regular person. Upon graduation, he started working and was contributing to the family.

Unfortunately, tragedy struck in 2009. He started feeling weak and lethargic constantly. His condition got much worse and he had to stop working in 2010. It wasn't until 2011 that he was finally diagnosed with Wilson's Disease - a disorder that prevents the body from getting rid of excess copper.

By this point, Jun Liang had lost the ability to walk, talk or care for himself, and was confined to a wheelchair. Mdm Lee initially ferried him to and from medical appointments via taxi, but found it troublesome and even discouraging as "the taxi drivers were generally unhelpful".

Thankfully, a social worker then referred mother and son to the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) TransportAid programme in March 2012. Mdm Lee now pays $25 per round trip for this service compared to around $18 each way previously by taxi.

While this does not create huge monetary savings, Mdm Lee is heartened by the interaction they now have with the ambulance responders, who praise Jun Liang for every improvement in his condition. It provides great encouragement for both mother and son.

For many patients like Jun Liang, getting to and from their medical appointments can be challenging because of their limited mobility.

You can help them today with your gift of a donation to TransportAid.

On behalf of our beneficiaries, thank you.
