Meet Mervin, a young basketball enthusiast from Terengganu with an indomitable spirit! Despite being born with Cerebral Palsy (Spastic Diplegia), Mervin’s passion for basketball knows no bounds. Not only is he an avid fan of Malaysian basketball player Heng Yee Tong, but he also dreams of becoming a basketball coach to empower others in the community.

Captivated by Mervin’s passion and courage, PETRONAS orchestrated a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for him. Transported to Kuala Lumpur, Mervin not only had the chance to meet his idol, but also got to coach team PETRONAS Sports & Recreational Club (KSRP) in a friendly match against a team of National players. The lucky boy also got to witness the MBA finals, where Heng Yee Tong played for Johor Tigers against NS Matrix!

When Atikah received her stage four ovarian cancer diagnosis, her parents were devastated. However, amidst the turmoil, they made a resolute decision: to set aside their worries and dedicate themselves wholeheartedly to her care. Together, as a family, they have exemplified remarkable resilience and strength, standing united in the face of challenges!

Moved by her resilience, PETRONAS organised a surprise birthday party for Atikah by the sea—a dream she had for a long time that finally came true as she turned 10. Alongside heartfelt gifts, Atikah’s friends were warmly welcomed to share in the joyous occasion. The sparkle in Atikah’s eyes proves that this was truly an unforgettable moment! We promise you you’ll cry when you see her reaction during the big surprise. 😭

Xin Yi’s deepest longing is to hear her own name being called, a desire that PETRONAS graciously fulfilled through their compassionate gesture. Alongside the gift of a hearing aid, Xin Yi has also been enrolled in speech therapy classes.
