British-based BPSDC said the donation followed the appeal from Sahrom’s family to pay for the medical bill and bring him home to Malaysia following the stroke.
Sahrom, a Tenaga Nasional Bhd retiree from Penang, suffered a stroke a day after arriving in London on Dec 12.
Following a brain haemorrhage and subsequent operation, his family now faces a £70,000 bill plus the cost of flying Sahrom back to Malaysia with a medical team and accompanying medical equipment.
The medical bill requires payment before Sahrom is able to claim from his insurance company, hence the reason for raising these funds. Once the money has been claimed back from the insurance company, Sahrom’s family will be donating it all to charity.
Chairman of Battersea Project Holding Company Ltd Datuk Ahmad Pardas Senin said: “We would like to extend our thoughts to Sahrom and his family at this difficult time and wish him a very speedy recovery.
“We hope this donation will help them to reach their target and ensures Sahrom returns back home to Malaysia as soon as possible.”
Battersea Power Station is owned by a consortium of Malaysian investors comprising S P Setia, Sime Darby Property and the Employees’ Provident Fund. BPSDC manages the development of the project.
