A local disabled woman in Penang was evicted from her home and left Rm50 in her pocket after her husband has left her and returned to his home, while her six adult children refused to care for her. Machang Bubuk assemblyman, Lee Khai Loon said that when Kak Ida came to their service centre for help, her eyes were full of tears as she was very sad and worried.

Her earlier business of selling clothes by the roadside didn’t work out and she was evicted from her RM800 a month flat with only RM50 in her pocket. Lee got a housing unit for Kak Ida and he got help from friends to help Kak Ida move to the housing unit and he notices that an old, broken car in front of her flat and found that the car was meant to be a vehicle for her to make living in the past. He has asked a foreman to repair the car so Kak Ida can move around and run her business and he also got her a new pair of spectacles as her old one was broken and she couldn’t afford to replace it.
