许萱小妹妹要“有声”世界的新闻见报后,短短6天后便筹得11万6千892令吉,距离筹款目标不远,恢复听力在望! 砂人工耳蜗协会主席拿督陈超耀昨日指出,上述11万令吉的善款包括5万令吉由许家亲戚、朋友所捐献,余下则是来自社会大众。“许萱小妹妹的遭遇见报后,黄慧君(许萱母亲)、砂人联党美里支部及砂人工耳蜗协会便接到许多热心人士的来电,纷纷表示欲捐助许小妹妹。” 他说,大部分捐款者都是来自本市的市民,部分则来自外海,他们是通过网络媒体、面书的知道许小妹妹的遭遇,也通过汇款的方式将款项汇入砂人工耳蜗协会。 他指出,许小妹妹两耳植入人工耳蜗协会的费用高达14万令吉,目前还欠缺2万3千108令吉。他有信心近期内便可以筹取足够的善款。 他称,在砂人工耳蜗协会的安排下,许小妹妹预料将在下个月进行手术,相信她很快便可以恢复听觉,在“有声”世界下生活。 天生没有耳蜗许萱刚满2岁,她是在出生后不久被美里中央医院医生证实有先天听觉障碍,必须施手术植入人工耳蜗,才能与正常人般能听、能讲。 由于人造耳蜗经常高昂,需大约14万令吉,使到其母亲黄慧君在不得已之下,于本月18日向砂人联党美里支部主席兼砂人工耳蜗协会主席拿督陈超耀律师求助,透过他的力量向公众求救。 黄慧君透露,其丈夫(许萱父亲)目前正在澳洲半工半读,尽管省吃省用但每月只剩澳币千余元,而本身则担任德士无线电接听员,但每个月也仅有900令吉收入,只足以负担4个孩子的生活及教育费。 她说,她及丈夫的收入非常有限,实在无能力负担小女儿的庞大医药费,所以需要希望社会人士的帮忙。 陈超耀吁请有欲捐款的公众,可将款项汇入砂人工耳蜗协会(Sarawak Cochlear Implant Society)在大众银行(Public Bank)户口,或移步砂人联党美里支部与方秋琴联络,电话为085-423399。

陈超耀:联邦不应阻碍砂注重英文

砂拉越人民联合党中央秘书长拿督陈超耀律师认为,联邦政府不应阻碍砂拉越政府落实有助于推动砂人民朝向世界级水准的决策。 他对于联邦政府社会与文化事务顾问丹斯里莱士雅丁日前以维护东西马团结为由,希望砂州政府重新检讨英文为官方语言的决定,感到失望和惊讶。 莱士雅丁声称,砂州政府此举恐将分离东西马人民,影响团结气氛。 陈超耀今日透过文告表示,自从首席部长拿督巴丁宜丹斯里阿德南沙登上任以来,他对于人民的各项决策,都是带来更好的影响,绝对不会是为了分离人民,或影响团结。 他说,莱士雅丁的言论是令人失望的,漠视砂拉越人追求进步的愿望,在无疆界的时代,掌握更多语文是在世界立足的重要基础。况且,首长从来不曾表明马来文不重要,而是强调英文和马来文并重的重要。 他表示,英文一直以来都被政府机构和私人界广泛使用,而首长宣布英文为官方语文,是为了加强英文的使用,让砂州人民更加重视英文。 “莱士雅丁本身是个执业律师,而且还曾经担任外交部长,理应懂得英文的重要性。” 他强调,砂拉越具有独特的历史与文化背景,与西马不尽相同,因为,若砂拉越政府重视英文,并非是一项课题。而且,相信全体砂拉越人都会认同首长重视英文的决策,这对于未来下一代具有好处。 因此,他呼吁砂拉越人成为首长的后盾,支持其政策与理念,为更好的未来而努力。
