Hong Kong Neuro-Muscular Disease Association adviser Fernando Cheung Chiu-hung said it was ridiculous that the Community Care Fund preferred to spend money on overseas travel for students rather than help people whose lives are at risk, referring to those with neuromuscular disease. Lawmaker Peter Cheung Kwok-che, a fund committee member, said he would speak on these patients' behalf at the fund's next meeting next month to discuss a second batch of medical subsidies.
