Supporting My Son

3 years before I decided to work in Malaysia, my husband suddenly had a stroke.

“I’ve been here for 6 years and will definitely start crying everytime I remember the main reason I came to Malaysia. 3 years before I decided to work in Malaysia, my husband suddenly had a stroke. All our savings were used for my husband’s medical treatment. My son who was still in school had to work and support our family. My son is a very wise man and I am so proud of him. After graduating from high school, he received a place at the local university. However, due to my husband’s condition, he didn’t attend the school. He started to work and help the family a little bit, and in 2010 my husband passed away.

We’re still grieving and sad. However, I support my son’s dream to continue his study. A year later I decided to find extra money in Malaysia for our family savings. My son has now completed his study. I’ve never been more proud of my son because he works while studying to support our family. “
