Generous donors raise RM23,000 for ailing mum cared for by 2 children


V Themoli suffers from a blood clot disorder.

PETALING JAYA: V Thenmoli, who suffers from a blood clot disorder that affects her breathing, can now pay for her medical treatment and outstanding bills, thanks to the generosity of the public.

A total of RM23,000 has been raised as of May 11, according to her cousin, Maneesha Purushothaman.

FMT published an article on May 10 about Thenmoli’s struggle to provide for her five-year-old daughter and seven-year-old son, who try their best to care for their mother.

Maneesha, 26, expressed her gratitude to FMT for highlighting Thenmoli’s plight and said the money raised had alleviated the family’s financial burden.

“We are grateful to everyone for their donations and will not forget their help,” she said.

She said they had managed to settle a year’s rent and the utility bills, and pay for a month’s supply of oxygen tanks.

Maneesha said she and Thenmoli were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and financial donations.

“Many have called to ask for Thenmoli’s address so they can visit her this week to donate groceries and clothes,” she said, adding that there were many Good Samaritans who were willing to sponsor the children’s school transport fares and kindergarten fees.

She also said several MPs from both sides of the political divide and NGOs had reached out to provide financial and healthcare assistance to Thenmoli.

“A representative from the Welfare Department (JKM) called and said they will look into increasing her monthly allowance,” she said.

She said they had set aside some of the cash to pay for Thenmoli’s treatment, which costs between RM6,000 and RM8,000.

“I am hoping the treatment will ease her pain and let her live a good life,” she said.

Thenmoli said she was grateful to those who helped. “I don’t have to worry about my children and whether I will be able to feed them, so thank you very much,” she told FMT.
