Three Luyechun (Outstanding Student) Musketeers

Please kindly allow me write about three Luyechun friends: Dr. Soe Aung, Dr. Kamal and I. We are from different race and religions and different in ages. But we love each other, work and help each other….wonderful period of our time. And now we know that we are fellow LYCs. Of course all of us love our motherland and wish to be peaceful, prosperous and free 🙂 from all the socio-political problems.

Three of us managed to help Bosnia (refugee) Medical Specialists got the jobs in University Malaya. Although they were specialists and got the special status as recognized refugees by United Nations and Malaysian government they were REFUSED Medical Registration by Malaysian Medical Council. So could not practice Medicine and when I went to treat their community weekly, they just came and translate for me. Once one of the lady doctor told me that from the next week she could not translate as she decided to just work as a factory worker. And another couple just started to work as started working as Assistant Nurses in private clinics.

I felt sorry for them and discussed with the Dr Soe and Dr. Kamal INNIATED, encouraged them and searched the jobs for them to work as Research Officers in MU different departments. As those were research based, no need to apply for the Medical Registrations. Dr. Kamal personally appealed to the Professors (whom Dr Soe and I had earlier introduced him) arranged for the accommodations and even borrow money to them.

Because of that good deeds God help all three of us with numerous rewards.

Dr. Soe Aung wrote on my FB Wall: “Dr Ko Ko Gyi is the first Burmese Medical Officer worked at University Malaya. Before him, non of Malaysian University wanted to to appoint Burmese MOs. Due to his strong knowledge in Medicine ( I really don’t know how he remember everything) , dedicate in his work (he still can work 365 days  a year), excellent clinical skills ( worked at Mandalay GH)  , University Hospital started to accept Burmese doctor and later,  followed by HUKM.  I was the first one benefit from his excellent work and subsequently my brother. I  thanks and fully appreciate his jobs on introducing NG and Lee Locum, loan me money for a day to do MPH (at that time,  I need to show bank account to do MPH), introducing AE UH Medical officer and etc. JUST TO LET new Medical Officers FROM UH and HUKM know. In fact, I learned medical ethic and professionalism from my mother, our lecturers from Burma and later from Dr Ko Ko Gyi in Malaysia. I learnt the most important one from him  is telling patients what I believe the best for them without fears and favors.”

Actually Dr. Faridah Mere came out from Burma with Pakistan Passport and started to work in UHKL, got FRCS and later even work in UKM as Surgery Professor and Head. UM and UKM accepted Burmese lecturers but UKM student clinic only accepted …the Burmese MOs. But now they all understand the hard work and dedication of Myanmar MOs and always seek for Myanmar MOs if there is any vacancy. TQ Dr. Soe Aung for the kind words.

    Great stories. The Burmese & the Bosnian doctors had to defy all odds, bear the hardship and suffering, and were bold enough to seek a living else where in the world, far away from their mother countries. Malaysia has been kind so far; but only confined to Muslim refugees. Thank Goodness the doctors were all finally able to apply what they had learned in their profession in M’ysian unis.
