Ms. R. Rajeswary (16 years old), a form five student
February 8, may be a good day for everybody...but not for R. Rajeswary. At about 10:15 on that fateful morning, her brother went to fetch her on his motorcycle. Unfortunately her jacket was got in the wheel and her left arm was dragged into the motorcycle wheel and crushed. She was immediately rushed to hospital. However, after 6 hours struggling with pain at the emergency ward of Kuala Lumpur General Hospital, her crushed hand could not be saved and had to be amputated.

Her life is incomplete with only one arm.




Mohamad Sha'ari Bin Kulop Maarof, a 54 years old bachelor from Taman Rimba, Ampang.

En. Sha'ari, a  cook by profession, is a diabetic.

Due to the progressive degenerative nature of the disease, on August 7, , his right leg was amputated below the knee.

He is currently unemployed but he is hoping to work again with the prosthetic leg.
