Remember the Panjabi baby that was badly scalded in a hot water accident at her home in Kuala Lumpur last year? Back then, Malaysians gallantly came forward to raise close to RM127,000 to provide her the medical assistance she required.

So, what had happened to Ravneet Kaur who was 11 months old when the accident took place in incident in February 2018?

On Sunday (22 Sept 2019), Ravneet and her mother finally returned to Punjab, India, to continue the next phase of their life. Baby Ravneet will seek the next stage of her medical needs in Punjab.

“Baby Ravneet and the mother will be staying with a family member in Amritsar. We will liase direct with the hospital where she will undertake her next surgery before disbursing the funds,” Sikh Welfare Society Malaysia (SWSM) secretary Charanbir Singh told Asia Samachar.

The society is holding some RM85,000 from the balance of the funds raised in a fund raising drive held along with Santana Riderz Mc and Asia Samachar. Within 48 hours, the Sanggat had raised close to RM127,000.

“We will continue to monitor her progress and pay the medical bills accordingly,” he said.

Ravneet and her mother visited the SWSM members who were holding their annual general meeting in Kuala Lumpur.

The baby underwent a number of surgeries, including a couple of rounds of round of skin grafting.
