KOTA BHARU, Nov 5 -- Sultan Muhammad V of Kelantan visited a tumour patient, Kamareeah Arwae, 36, who is in a coma since last year at Kampung Badang, near Pantai Cahaya Bulan here today.
Sultan Muhammad V, who personally drove to the house, arrived at about 3.40 pm before handing over his personal contribution and that from the Kelantan Islamic Religious and Malay Customs Council (MAIK).
Also present were the Tengku Temenggong of Kelantan Tan Sri Tengku Mohamad Rizam Tengku Abdul Aziz and Kijang State Assemblyman, Dr Izani Husin.
It is understood, Sultan Muhammad spent about 30 minutes at the house and even recited a doa for Kamareeah’s recovery.
Meanwhile, Kamareeah’s husband, Fairol Haziri Rahim, 44, said he did not expect the sufferings of his wife to attract the attention of Sultan Muhammad V.
He said MAIK’s representatives had visited the house prior to this to give a cash contribution to his wife for expenditure including for buying milk and disposable diapers.
‘’I am very proud of Tuanku’s willingness to visit my family and handing over his private contribution.
‘’At least this contribution can help alleviate the burden of my family. I was most excited when Tuanku himself prayed for my wife’s recovery,’’ said Fairol Haziri who had two children, Farah Hanis, five months, and Farras Hazim, two.
Fairol Haziri said his wife was detected with tumour after experiencing fits when treated at the Universiti Sains Malaysia (HUSM) Hospital.
‘’Prior to this, my wife had undergone two operations to remove part of her skull and take out a tumour in her head.
‘’However, despite a little change in my wife’s condition, she is still in a coma and must always be looked after,’’ said Fairol Haziri, who also received a monthly aid of RM200 from the Social Welfare Department.
He said his wife’s condition had been highlighted in the media when she delivered Farah Hanis via surgery when she was in a coma.
He said his daughter was now five months old and being breast-fed by a nursing mother who was also a doctor at the Wakaf Che Yeh Health Clinic, here.
