Standing by Our Fallen Heroine’s Family

Standing by Our Fallen Heroine’s Family

 

We have to stand by our medical front-liners who fight the Covid-19 outbreak with their lives.

 

The tragic demise of Nadila Rahmat, the nurse in Sultanah Fatimah Specialist Hospital, Muar, Johor, has taken away the eldest daughter from her parents, the eldest sister from her four siblings and the sole breadwinner for her family. We are called to fill the void economically as much as we can, as if her family is our own.

 

Her demise is a great loss to society and the nation: for her hospital, a dedicated staff member with 10-year experience; for her patients, a nurse who would attend to their pain at any time; for Malaysia, a heroine who loyally answered the call to fight the pandemic on the front-lines.

 

We cannot replace such a noble soul. We can only mourn with tears. In the wake of the shattering pain of loss, we can reach within our means to do what we can, to honour her contribution and sacrifice and provide some encouragement for her family. The smile of a nurse can lighten the pain of her patients. We pray that similarly this little donation we have collected will lighten the burden of her family. 

 

We, United Chinese School Committees' Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong) and the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (KLSCAH) have collected RM 65,000 in donations and transferred it to the late Nadila Rahmat’s family.

 

We thank Dr Musa Mohd Nordin from KPJ Damansara Specialist Hospital for connecting us with her family. Friends who would like to contribute may do so by banking into the family’s account: Maybank, 151089316135, RODIAH BINTI MOHD DON and informing her family by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
