Heart of gold: Kelvin leading the students to deliver goods to Uncle Hee’s house.

KUCHING: Three varsity students have “adopted” a local non-governmental organisation (NGO) as case study for their project.

Myrrah Shaima, Leong Lai San and Nur Ethika from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (Unimas) recently met the Hope Place founder Kelvin Wan to know more about the body.

The three undergraduates even joined him to deliver food items to need families near Bau, about half-an-hour’s drive from here.

“We visited Uncle Hee Jet Sin, 66, and his wife Voon Kim Siang, 63, who could not not walk after a fall recently.

“Their house did not have electricity and clean water supply.

“They had to rely on collected rainwater for drinking, cooking and cleaning,” Kelvin said. Moreover Uncle Hee’s house was located at quite a distance from the main road.

“The car could not reach there. We had to traverse through a small jungle from the main road, which roughly took us some 15 minutes to reach Uncle Hee’s house.

“Even the road condition was bad, which I think could be worse during rainy season,” he said.

“We would very much welcome any help or contribution from the public to help the needy.

“Hope Place can be contacted at 013-567 2775 from 8.30am to 12.30pm Mondays to Fridays.

“They can also call me on 016-866 0711.

“Should the public be interested to make donations, please request for receipts from our staff,” Kelvin added.
