Thankful for party’s help

AFTER more than three years of appealing for a transfer back to Penang, a teacher had his wish granted — thanks to the MCA.

Chiam Ming Jeng, 27, who was posted to a school in Subang Jaya, Selangor, had applied to come back to Penang to teach as his mother was suffering from cancer at the time.

His father had passed away in 2009.

After appealing to the party for assistance, Chiam had his wish granted in January when he was transferred to SMJK (C) Chung Hwa, Butterworth.

As a token of appreciation, his sister Wei Ping, 29, presented MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek with a ‘thank you’ plaque to express the family’s gratitude during the state party convention on Saturday.

“My brother, sister and myself are all teachers.

“My brother and I were posted to other states to teach when my mother was ill, so he requested to come back to take care of her.

“Thanks to MCA, the transfer application was finally approved,” she said.

Their mother succumbed to the illness two months ago.
