Home alone: Ibrahim inside his self made house where he has llived without electricity and water supply for the past four years.
PASIR MAS: Over the past four years, octogenarian Ibrahim Muda has lived alone in a dilapidated hut.
However, his hut at Kampung Jebak Puyuh, Lubuk Tapah, here is on the verge of collapse and he has sought help to repair it.
Ibrahim, 80, who has four children, who are staying in Pahang started his lonely life after a divorce several years ago. He is now staying in a hut that has no basic amenities like water or electricity supply not to mention a toilet.
”I am used to a hard life and do not mind living without water or electricity because I have small needs but the hut shakes a lot especially when there is heavy rain and winds.
“I do not mind staying in this hut as long as it gives shelter from the rain and sun but I appeal to the generous people to help me repair my house. Otherwise I have nowhere else to stay,” said Ibrahim who moved here in 2010 after staying in Pahang since 1956.
Ibrahim, who is an odd job labourer, survives on monthly RM300 from the Welfare Department, built the hut with used wooden planks and bamboo and tattered canvas.
Ibrahim said he still cooks rice and boils water using firewood and has a bed to sleep on. “But lately I have been unwell and depend on rain water although the well is situated not far from here,” he said.
