Chew Hoong Ling ~ A Malaysian Heroine who gave a part of herself literally!



I had heard of this selfless woman who had given away a part of her liver to help a cancer stricken young teenager, 14 year old Lee An Qi, who despite getting 60% of Chew Hoong Ling's healthy liver, failed to survive due to other complications!


I was pleasantly surprised to come across this true life Malaysian heroine in the flesh when we were all together at a dialogue which YB Dato Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil held at the Le Meridien Hotel, KL Sentral with us bloggers and social media practitioners this afternoon.


At first I didn't realize that this was the very same woman who had once caught the attention of the entire nation with her having done something that not that many people have done in the world ~ which is to be a live organ donor!

Hoong Ling had stood up to ask Dato Seri Shahrizat as to why there seems to be segregation in the Malaysian orphanages separating the orphans according to their race and religion?


Later on when the dialogue was over, we got to exchange our contact details and I was interested to learn more about this seemingly quite confident young Chinese lady who spoke in such fluent Malay when she addressed the audience earlier.


After getting to know one another and stayed on for me to do a video interview of her speaking about the subject, I came to learn that this was her, the selfless young Malaysian heroine who had done such a great humanitarian gesture!
Something that I really truly so admire her for her goodheartedness and the way she handled herself so well, so goodnaturedly exchanging pleasantries with each and every member of the dialogue and befriending the blogging fraternity who were present. I'll be sharing some photos and a video interview which I recorded of her later once it is processed.


I was really very impressed and admire Hoong Ling for her courage and kindness. She is truly someone whom all Malaysians can be proud of and deserves to be celebrated for her selflessness. Click here to learn more about this living legend of our nation.


In my heart, she is our heroine. A true Malaysian Srikandi. 


May you be blessed dear Hoong Ling!

tuan,

kalau tak silap pada tahun 1999 seorang anak muda telah mendermakan sebahagian hatinya kepada seorang budak kecil yang tiada pertalian darah lansung. itu juga merupakan kes pertama seumpamanya. mungkin ramai yang dah lupa mengenai hafizam dan adik afiq.

usabukata,
Memang tidak disanggah hakikat itu.

Tahun 1999, Mahaguru58 belum menjadi blogger, makanya tak ada kesempatan meraikan seorang manusia berhati dan berjiwa mulia seperti Chew Hoong Ling.

Saya memang amat kagum dan hormat kepada wanita ini.

Walau ia seorang yang belum Muslim namun peribadinya amat baik sekali dan saya berdoa agar Allahu Rabbul Alamin akan memberikan Hoong Ling Taufik dan HidayahNya agar Hoong Ling akan menjadi seperti Cikgu Nur Aliya Yeoh, seorang lagi sahabat saya yang aktif membimbing manusia ke jalan Ar Rahman.

Bersama samalah kita mendoakan mereka semua.

Amin.

Betul, sebenarnya Hafizam lebih berani daripada saya kerana beliau penderma pertama di Malaysia, pada masa yang tiada orang tahu apa akan berlaku pada masa yang akan datang. Risiko amat tinggi dan amat sukar untuk dihadapi pada masa itu. Saya juga mendengar berita bahawa beliau tidak sihat sekarang tetapi tidak dapat pula saya jejaki beliau. Saya betul-betul ingin melawat beliau dan anugerah belia negara yang saya terima sepatutnya milik beliau.

Saya sihat..dan aktif seperti org lain...terima kasih dan tahniah kerana anda jugak salah seorang penderma hati yg berjaya.
