Passing of a Champion of the Disabled

It is with deep regrets that we learn of the passing of a Christian leader who is a passionate supporter of the disabled people. The late Mr. Edward Lee died from colon cancer as reported HERE. His contact with us was in July 2008 when he attended the thanksgiving dinner of the 10th anniversary of Pusat Berdikari Seremban on the invitation of Mr. Tony Wong, a personal friend. The picture below was taken during that function (Edward was seated left).

THIS is Edward's blog and extracted from his profile is the following information.

Lee was involved in the following achievements, done without financial funding from any political party, corporations or individuals but through cooperation and consultation with the public and working together with the municipality.

1) Malaysian Care
Lee started out voluntary work with Malaysian Care in 1985 driving children with learning disabilities to camps and outdoor activities. He was also their teacher and friend.

Through introductions by churches and friends, he later also helped people with mental illnesses, eg schizophrenia, suicidal cases and depression, by being their friend and carer.

Our condolence goes to his family on his untimely death.
