Blind Massuers Losing Income Amidst MCO 2.0

Rajeevan Gopala Krishnan, Managing Director, Touch For Health Reflexology & Massage

Blind Massuers Losing Income Amidst MCO 2.0

The Malaysian Association For The Blind (MAB) is calling for the government to revise the classification of services provided by blind massuers from "entertainment" to "alternative medicine", in a bid to help them regain the ability to work during this MCO. We speak to Rajeevan Gopala to understand how blind massuers are coping right now.

You can donate to MAB by making a bank transfer to 514057637836 (Maybank: Malaysian Association for the Blind) with the reference note of "covid19 ASB".
