Time for TRE community to help their own

In Uncategorized on 25/09/2017 at 4:39 am

And show how much they appreciate TeamTRE’s efforts.

TeamTRE has been made an appeal (see below) for funds to help Andrew (its techie) who has been around since the relaunch in late 2012, I think. He’s the last Jedi left standing since the other Jedi retired honourably after GE 2015.

His wife is undergoing cancer treatment (details below) and the monthly bill “amounts to about RMB 300 a day or RMB 9,000 a month (SGD 1,839).”

If TRE readers really appreciate what TRE is doing, they should make a donation, the most convenient way is into a POSB account

Singapore POSB Account

Payee: Ten Leu-Jiun

A/C No: 193-69702-0

Post Office Savings Bank

(The last day of payment to this account is 30 September.)

As I like to say, “Money talks, BS walks”. If TRE readers and posters don’t bother to help Andrew, I advise TeamTRE to close shop. The failure shows that regular readers and posters are ingrates that deserve to be oppressed by the PAP. In fact the PAP should be praised for oppressing such a bunch of losers.

Btw, TeamTRE had already given up sometime back appealing for donations to keep it’s operations going, saying it was va waste of time.

Whatever, TRE readers should remember “A friend in need is a friend indeed” and help Andrew.


TRE’s appeal

TR Emeritus’s (TRE) in-house techie, Andrew is currently in a difficult situation and is in need of assistance from our readers, if possible.

Our techie, who has been with TRE since the Temasek Review days is currently in a situation whereby he has to fork out a hefty sum monthly in medical bills for his sick wife, whom he married in 2012.

His 35-year-old wife, Ivy was diagnosed with a medical condition called “Lumbar disc herniation” (腰间盘突出) about 3 months ago and have been receiving treatment at a local government hospital on a daily basis. While it is quite a common illness in China, his wife’s condition is  serious as she was unable to sit up during the initial stage for 3 weeks and even after 3 months of treatment, cannot sit or walk for more than an hour without feeling intense pain.

According to the specialist attending to his wife, what she is suffering from cannot be treated once-off and she has to continue to receive treatment for about 12 months or more via acupuncture, stretching and medication. In the worst case scenario, she would have to undergo surgery.

As our techie is a foreigner in China and his wife being unemployed, they have no medical insurance (医保) and have to fork out the entire medical bill in cash, which amounts to about RMB 300 a day or RMB 9,000 a month (SGD 1,839).

Back in the Temasek Review days, this would not have been a problem for Andrew as he was drawing about US$4,000 a month with his modest hosting business and doing part-time system administration for Data Centers. However, due to the rapid advancement in hosting technology, our techie was unable to keep up with the growth and has since terminated his hosting business.

He is currently limiting himself to doing part-time system administration for a few hosting companies and helping out with the chores in his wife’s family farm. As such, an additional un-planned medical expense of RMB 9,000 a month is a significant stretch on his income, which has almost halved since he closed his hosting business.

Clearly, to continue to fork out RMB 9,000 for his wife’s medical expenses every month for a year or so would be very taxing for our techie considering his current income. It is estimated that he would need about RMB 100,000 (SGD 20,485) for the medical bills in the months ahead, more if a surgery is required (touch wood).

As such, TRE is making an appeal on his behalf to our readers for assistance, be it financial or advice.

1. If you know of a competent doctor, hospital in China or Hong Kong which is renowned for treating “Lumbar disc herniation”, please follow-up in this thread with the relevant information. His wife is currently undergoing treatment in a small government hospital about 250km from WuHan, which may not have the necessary facilities to adequately and effectively treat her.

2. If you wish to make a goodwill donation to help Andrew defray his wife’s medical cost, please use the donation form located here. From now till end September 2017, TRE will forward all donations received via our PayPal account to him.

For those who may not have a PayPal account or would prefer to donate in cash, you may (more troublesome) drop by any money remittance service (common in China Town – Singapore) to make a manual remittance to the following bank account in China.
