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.  

SEEKING HELP: Lee (second from right) and his assistant Alex Chan (right) will raise funds for U Fatt's operation. Looking on are (from left) his aunt Jennifer Tham, uncle Loh Gar Leong and Tan.

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.
