“I HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE LIVES TODAY BECAUSE 20 YEARS AGO, YTL FOUNDATION EXTENDED A HELPING HAND TO A YOUNG BOY WITH BIG DREAMS.”

Dr Narasimman Sathiamurthy

Surgeon, Penang General Hospital

I am among the very first few students who are proud to be called a YTL Scholar. YTL Foundation strives to be the catalyst in building this nation through education, and I firmly stand behind this belief. 20 years ago, I was just a young school boy in Teluk Intan, Perak with a big dream of saving lives and wearing a doctor’s white coat. My mother, who is the true protagonist in this story, single-handedly raised me since the passing of my father, deserves a standing ovation. Her perseverance inspired me, and with YTL Foundation’s help, I am fulfilling my dream as a practicing surgeon at Penang General Hospital.
