Uncle Wai, who loves sports, is a private swimming instructor and has taught swimming for over 10 years. A few years ago, he started to feel chest pains and numbness in his arms and legs. Once, he lost consciousness and fainted at the pool.

After a doctor's diagnosis, Uncle Wai was found to be suffering from blood vessel blockage and needed to undergo PCI surgery. However, due to COVID, Uncle Wai's income dropped drastically, and he could not afford private hospital fees.

Fortunately, through BOG-TW's Medical Fund, he completed the surgery at Hong Kong Adventist Hospital - Tsuen Wan. He is now recovering and teaching his students to swim as per usual. He is grateful to BOG-TW for helping him recover.
