A Place To Call Home At Last For Elderly Wheelchair User
THE KUALA LUMPUR CITY HALL (DBKL) has just handed over the keys of a low cost flat unit to a wheelchair user after an staggering two-year wait for the facility.
V Karuppanan, 60, who was foced to squat in his car at the flat's car park all this while, was thrilled to get his home at last which was promised to him by the council since early 2011.
His new home is in Taman Intan Baiduri in Selayang, Kuala Lumpur.
Last Thursday, about 30-people in wheelchairs led by PETPOSITIVE and the Independent Living and Training Centre organised a demonstration in the DBKL condemning the council's apathy over the matter.
They threatened that they would not go away until the elderly gentleman was temporarily housed at the DBKL's expense until his promised lot was sorted out.
This prompted the head of housing and community development to provide the victim with his unit within 48 hours.
The handing over of the unit today is the result of last week's demonstration.
DBKL is also looking into making Karuppanan's new home wheelchair friendly - something they promised to do within a fortnight.
"We are also very disappointed with the Welfare Department, which despite us approaching them for help, has done nothing to get our member a decent place to stay," said Francis Siva, president of Independent Living and Training Centre in Rawang, Selangor to PET+BLOGSPOT last week.
"(The) media event (was) to bring urgent attention to his plight," added Francis who is also a committee member of PETPOSITIVE.
V Karuppanan is also a member of Petpositive.
