Sporting events have been cancelled everywhere due to the Covid-19 pandemic but Hasree Khaw and his family are hoping that the Asean Autism Games will go on as scheduled in December.

Hasree, 53, and his wife Nor Royahati Ramli, 45, have been actively involved in helping their two children Mifzal Khaw, 14, and Misha Khaw, 12, train in bowling. They are excited that their children will have a chance to represent Malaysia in a sports competition.
