SARAWAK, MALAYSIA: Malaysian Queen, Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah, has once again captured the public’s attention with her warmth and compassion.

On 1 November, a woman known as Kak Na from Sibu city in Sarawak, Malaysia, shared heartwarming news on her Facebook page.

She revealed that the Queen had made the extraordinary decision to adopt a 2-year-old girl from Bintulu, Sarawak, named Missclyen.

The Facebook post sharing this beautiful story quickly went viral, amassing 13,000 likes, 1,100 comments, and 15,000 shares within hours of its posting on 1 November.

In the caption of her post, Kak Na penned, “It seemed almost surreal.”

“You’re incredibly fortunate, Missclyen.”

Suffering from the challenges of ‘werewolf syndrome’

Missclyen was born with a rare condition called congenital generalized hypertrichosis, often referred to as ‘werewolf syndrome,’ which leads to excessive facial and upper body hair growth.

Her path crossed with Tunku Azizah and Malaysian King, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, during their Majesties’ visit to Masjid Al-Falah near Kampung Penan Muslim on 10 September as part of the Discover Borneo Expedition (Program Kembara Kenali Borneo).

The news of this heartwarming gesture came in the form of a letter dated 10 October 2023, delivered by the Sarawak Minister of Women, Childhood, and Community Wellbeing Development, Dato Sri Fatimah Abdullah, in Bintulu on the evening of 31 October.

Mr Roland Jimbai, Missclyen’s father, shared his immense joy upon reading the letter, admitting that he hadn’t anticipated that their brief encounter during the Discover Borneo Expedition would draw the Queen’s attention to the extent of considering Missclyen as her ‘adopted’ child, as reported by Utusan Borneo.

The letter from Istana Negara, also shared on Facebook, outlined the Queen’s commitment to covering Missclyen’s educational and medical expenses, including treatment for her unique condition.

The Queen’s gesture was aimed at alleviating Roland’s financial burdens in caring for Missclyen, who, apart from excessive hair growth, was born without nostrils.

Mr Roland, a 49-year-old who takes on various jobs to make ends meet, resides in Sangan, Tatau, Bintulu, with his wife, Theresa Guntin, and their children, with Missclyen being the youngest.

The family rents a house in Kampung Penan Muslim Batu 10, Bintulu, and Missclyen is under the care of Nyabau Hospital.

The heartwarming encounter between the royal couple and Missclyen, whom they affectionately referred to as ‘anak syurga’ (child from heaven), was documented with Tunku Azizah seen holding and cuddling the child closely.

The video capturing their meeting on 10 September initially gained widespread attention and has since accumulated a remarkable 7 million views on TikTok to date.
