About this campaign



Our first crowdfunding campaign that was to fund for our national basketball player Tong Wen Keong’s medical expenses after he got involved in a car accident. Tong Wen Keongs’ elbow was fractured and his family decided to send him to Singapore for treatment, the medical fees reach as high as RM150k. Therefore to reduce the financial burden of Wen Keong’s family and to help him to get back on track, CRSM has decided to crowd fund an amount of RM150k through GoCare online charity crowdfunding website and host a charity basketball match with the collaboration of Malaysia Basketball Association, Johor Basketball Association and NBL ASIA. The campaign was very successful and we have accumulated an amount of RM 91355 as of 29th of January 2016.

 

The Story :

After the first campaign, this time we have decided to help Sim Ming Huey, which is an ex-national basketball player that was involved in a car accident in 2012 and had her lower body paralysed forever. She cannot feel anything below her shoulder, her vocal cord is affected and her legs experience continuous atrophy. Every month, she will have to return to the hospital and private medical institution because of the failure of her organs to function properly which inhibits the excretion of waste from her body. She also experience urethra inflammation frequently and bloating due to slow digestion. She cannot function as a normal human being as she can only lie on a bed and requires her parent’s care.

 

She has said that her friends and family had spent their time to support her, they also took her out by carrying her on their backs. She also said that she met a lot of people like her which showed her a way of living by using her only pair of hand.

 

After the rehabilitation from 2012 to 2015, she found a company which was willing to give her a chance to step out to society. She got a job as an admin clerk and can start earning her own living. But due to her health, she quit her job and rest at home as her doctor had advised her to because the job was taking a toll on her health as she always needed to take sick leave to visit the doctor and the salary was only enough for her living cost.

 

Amidst the hardships she is facing, Ming Huey still remained positive and tough. She plan to learn some survival technique for the disabled at the medical centre and especially learn to drive so that she can travel around independently.

 

GoCare hopes that an donation target of RM20,000 can be achieved, the funds accumulated will be given to Sim Ming Huey to fund her medical fees and a new wheelchair.

 

 

 

 

To date, Crisis Relief Squad of MCA (CRSM) has participated in many local disaster relief activities such as the flood in west and east coast of Malaysia and assisting in the MH370 incident. In order to improve and increase the efficiency in disaster relieving, Crisis Relief Squad of MCA has released GoCare which is an online charity crowdfunding website (GoCare.org.my). This is the first online crowdfunding platform in Malaysia that is targeted at raising money for humanitarian cause. The public can help by their generous donation to help people in need and spread the positivity out using social media.

 

We hope that through GoCare online charity crowdfunding platform, we can assist people or groups that require help by crowdfunding from the public. We also seek to provide a transparent, efficient and easy-to-use donation platform to the public. Any enquires regarding about GoCare can be made at gocare.org.my@gmail.com or call 2203 3979.

 

 

 

继为现役篮球国手唐文强筹募15万令吉手术费后,马华志工团旗下的GoCare慈善众筹将展开第二项计划,即为我国一名前国家篮球青年队代表沈茗卉筹募医药费。

 

马华志工团全国团长拿督赖俊瀚披露,GoCare首个众筹活动是为马来西亚现役篮球国手唐文强筹募15万令吉的手术费,并透过与马来西亚篮球总会、柔佛州篮球总会,NBL ASIA于2016年1月29日假新山拉庆室内体育馆联合举办一场慈善篮球挑战赛。截止今天共筹获91,355令吉。

 

故事 :

 

继唐文强后,Gocare也将开始为我国一名前国家篮球青年队代表沈茗卉筹募医药费。2012年沈茗卉在一次意外发生严重车祸,导致半身终身瘫痪。肩膀以下已经瘫痪毫无知觉,声带也受损,腿部也会逐渐的萎缩。因为这次的意外,她因为身体器官无法正常运作,导致大小便失禁,需要尿管才能顺利排尿,而尿道也因此常常出现发炎的症状。胃部的消化能力也比常人缓慢,经常出现胃胀风的状况,每个月都需要出入医院和私人诊所复诊。种种的车祸后遗症,让她无法像以前一样生活,事事都必须依靠父母的帮忙与照顾,心里觉得十分沮丧。

 

经过3年时间,她在朋友和亲人耐心的陪伴和开导下,逐渐抛开车祸带来的阴影,放开心胸出外走动,并认识了很多志同道合的残障人士的朋友,教导她如何残而不废,运用自己的双手过生活。目前她在一间批发公司上班,担任行政秘书赚取生活费,但因为身体不适,每个月都需要请假看医生,由于她需要终身使用轮椅,所以他必须选择一台量身定制的轮椅,以支撑他的脊椎坐正骨头,以便不容易歪曲。目前她所领的薪水只是足以应付日常开销,然而在身体的健康频频出状况下,她无奈听取医生的意见,决定在农历新年后,辞职以在家休养。

 

虽然在面对经济困难的情况下,沈茗卉依然坚强地面对前面的道路,并计划到医院学习残障人士日常所需的生活技能,特别是驾驶,让她可以更独立的踏入社会的生活。

 

GoCare希望能够为沈茗卉筹募2万令吉作为她的医药复诊及轮椅费,以减轻她的负担。

 

赖俊瀚表示,马华志工团2005成立至今,参与了多项在我国发生的大灾难援助,包括,南马、北马、东海岸大水灾、MH370援助等。为了让赈灾和提供人道援助的工作更加完善和有效地进行,我们希望透过Go Care慈善众筹凝聚公众力量,通过众筹的方式,协助有需要的群体或单位,协助他们度过难关。

 

希望透过GoCare众筹网的推出,可为公众提供一个透明、快捷、方便的公益捐助平台.

 

Risks & Challenges



Many are asking why are we doing this. Simple, we believe in love is everywhere. Quoting the famous Cambodian activist Somaly Mam, we strongly believe that love is the answer and that it can mend even the deepest unseen wounds. Love can heal, love can console, love can strengthen, and yes, love can make change. Giving love and being loved are equally important to us. Love gives us strength and courage to tackle just anything that may threaten to delay our charity project. Putting asides anything that is beyond our control, or so-called act-of-god, we do not think anything like equipment, event schedule, permits or any other problem that arise will not be resolved by our incredibly loving team.
