Mr. Subramaniam Packrisamy
Distributes free vegetarian food to 60 patients daily at Hospital Sultan Abdul Halim Sungai Petani
Born on 15 August 1947, Mr. Subramaniam Packrisamy, a retired hospital attendant, has been distributing free vegetarian meals to underprivileged patients who seek outpatient treatment at Hospital Sultan Abdul Halim Sungai Petani for the past five years.
Fondly known as Hospital Maniam, Mr. Subramaniam has been a familiar and comforting face to hundreds if not thousands of underprivileged patients who seek outpatient treatment at the hospital here. Prompted to first start distributing free vegetarian meals due to a lack of vegetarian food for Hindu patients at the hospital, Mr. Subramaniam now serves patients of all races especially those who come from the outskirts of Sungai Petani and can’t afford a proper meal while waiting for their treatment or medicines.
