Man Returns to Family After 35 Years

By Wan Muhammad Aslah Wan Razali

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- A local English daily recently carried the poignant story of how a 47-year search for an estranged father ended in heartbreak.

The father of five left behind his family in Melaka to seek greener pastures in Britain but never returned. He died just three days after the family finally located his whereabouts and sent an email to reconnect with him.

There have been numerous cases of Malaysians leaving the country and losing contact with their families back home. In some cases, the search for lost family members culminated in a happy reunion with their loved ones. However, there are also those that ended up an exercise in futility and heartbreak.

Diveheart Malaysia is the Malaysian edition of Diveheart, a Chicago, US-based non-profit organisation that assists children and people with disabilities to involve themselves in scuba-diving activities.
