Lam Thye is a man who defines public service

StarMetro's article on July 7, 2023.

TAN Sri Lee Lam Thye has once again established beyond doubt that he is not only a man of the people but one who is passionate about helping deserving causes.

I read with keen interest the news, “Social activist donates RM90,000 to three charity groups” on July 7 in StarMetro.

After the book was launched in June 2022, he announced that the proceeds from his biography Call Lee Lam Thye: Recalling a Lifetime of Service will be donated to charity.

Lam Thye kept to his word by donating the proceeds to Pure Life Society, Malaysian Association for the Blind and Kasih Hospice Foundation, with each receiving RM30,000.

He is a man of his word and a man of principle. I have read the book, which talks about different phases in his life, all to uplift the downtrodden in society.

He has written about how an elected representative has to serve to win the hearts and minds of the people.

I am glad that he has set a good example during those challenging days to serve the people through his commitment to public service.

While many leaders tend to retire once they no longer hold positions, Lam Thye at 76 years old continues to serve the people.

I believe Lam Thye will continue to live in the hearts of Malaysians as a man of the people and will live in history as an iconic figure in the area of service to the nation. I am sure many will emulate the fine example he has set.
