Representatives from Sin Chew Jit Poh visited NASAM JB on 22 July 2008 and came out impressed by the strokees who informed them that they first came to NASAM in wheelchairs and can now walk without any aid while one strokee even returned to driving on his own.
Attending to the reporters were members of NASAM JB Committee led by Mr Phoon Chee Yap, the Chairman. The reporters witnessed strokees doing hand therapy and group exercise. They also interviewed strokee Ang Meng Seng and photographed strokee Victor Tan driving his car. Among others, Mr Phoon high- lighted NASAM’s role in helping strokees recover and return to society, our fundraising efforts, the types of therapy we provide, our outreach programme, motivation/counselling for carers, outings for strokees. He also urged volunteers to offer their services at NASAM JB.  


Physio Qamer & Rehab Assistant Nalini led 15 strokees and carers to Kukup, a well-known fishing village about 80 km from JB, on the morning of 23 July 2008. The strokees headed to the temple to pray before walking to the nearby market. This was followed by lunch, after which everyone did some shopping for dried and fresh seafood.
The outing ended at about 4pm Everyone enjoyed the outing so much that they have already started planning next month’s trip.
