NPC Donates To Ailing Retired Bernama Journalist Ali Mamat
NPC president Mokhtar Hussain presented a cheque to Ali, 63, at the Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital here.
"It is hoped that the donation from the Journalist Welfare Fund set up by the NPC will help meet part of the cost of medication of Ali who has contributed a great deal to journalism in the country," he said.
Mokhtar said Ali, who was at one time Bernama's bureau chief in Terengganu, also suffered from diabetes and hypertension.
Ali said he appreciated the donation from the NPC, and was thankful that Mokhtar had travelled all the way from Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Terengganu to hand over the donation.
Ali, whose wives Maimu Yahaya, 55, and Aini Abdullah, 40, were with him, was cheerful and chatting with visitors once again.
He retired from Bernama in February 2007 and spends much of his time with his family in his village in Dungun.
