Pasir Mas: “Sister, I do not want to bother you, just send it to the welfare home and you do not have to bother washing and defecating and bathing my brother,” was the expression often expressed by Mohd Nazipu Ismail, 39, to his sister, Nor Hafiza Ismail, 33.
Nor Hafiza takes care of her brother who is paralyzed and can only lie down due to a stroke for the past two years even though his life with his own family is like having breakfast, eating dinner.
According to him, on the basis of responsibility and love for his brother, he never complained to take care of Mohd Nazipu, even more touching when his brother always cried and apologized for considering himself troublesome.
“I always whispered to my brother not to give up and promised to continue to take care of him as long as life is in his body. There is no reason for me to ‘throw’ or send him to a welfare center because he is my own flesh and blood.
“It is my daily routine to get up as early as 5 am to prepare my brother and feed and drink, before going to work as a sweeper at Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Bukit Perah here.
“I have only been working for four months to help my husband, Aziz Salem, 39, who works as a laborer.
“However, I will go home every break to visit my brother at home as well as give him lunch, before returning to work until 4 pm,” he said at his house in Kampung Cabang Empat, Tok Darat here, yesterday.
Nor Hafiza, who is also the mother of three, said her brother received assistance from the Social Welfare Department (JKM) RM400 a month but it was not enough to spend on disposable diapers and special milk every month.
According to her, because of that reason, she decided to work as her three children are still in school apart from her husband’s low income.
“Currently the room I have is my brother’s place while we five children sleep in the living room.
“It doesn’t matter, I sacrificed for my brother because he has no one to depend on and my husband also understands and allows me to take care of my brother in this house.
“The chopped water will not break, as will my relationship with my brother. No matter what, I will take care of him as long as I can,” he said, who received a visit from the Raja Shamri Foundation, yesterday.
