IPOH: Perak MCA will help to raise funds for 11-year-old burn victim Loh U Fatt to undergo skin-grafting operations.
U Fatt, his father Kah Soon, 43, and eight-year-old sister Pui Ling were seriously burnt in a flash-fire due to a gas leak at their home last Monday.
Perak MCA Public Services and Complaints Bureau chief Lee Kon Yin said U Fatt had been warded at the International Burn Unit of the Singapore General Hospital.
He said the complete treatment cost about RM500,000.
U Fatt, who sustained 50% burns, underwent the first surgery on Monday.
Lee appealed for public donations as the family could not foot the bill.
He said the donations should be made to U Fatt's mother Tan Siew Geok and addressed to the Perak MCA, 90-92, Jalan Sultan Idris Shah, 30000 Ipoh, Perak Darul Ridzuan.
Kah Soon who sustained 80% burns was reported to be still in critical condition while Pui Ling, who had 18% burns, underwent her first skin grafting operation at the Ipoh Hospital yesterday.
