10 Charity Organisations in Malaysia
Hello there, kind people 👋 if you’re looking to donate or help out in any way you can, you are on the right place.
In this article, we have charity organisations in Malaysia for illness, the unfortunates, animals, or people suffering from the latest global tragedy; Covid-19.
Without further ado, let’s read on to find out what are some of the charitable organizations in Malaysia.
1. National Cancer Society of Malaysia (NCSM)
The National Cancer Society of Malaysia (Persatuan Kanser Kebangsaan Malaysia), (NCSM), is the first not-for-profit cancer organisation in Malaysia that provides education, care and support services for people affected by cancer and the general public.
NCSM’s mission is to ensure that no Malaysian fears cancer by creating an understanding of cancer that leads to prevention and early detection, and by providing the best possible care possible to patients and their families.
On its website, you can also learn how to get screened or be involved with its association.
2. The National Autism Society Of Malaysia
The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) is a society formed in 1987 by a group of parents and professionals with the aim to deliver lifespan services to the community of people living with autism.
Currently, NASOM has established 20 centres around the whole country which provide a variety of programs.
3. Stepping Stones Living Center
Stepping Stones Living Centre is a home for underprivileged children and senior citizens. It is situated in Lot 102 C
The residents of the Living Centre are housed in 5 premises in Taman Seputeh, Kuala Lumpur. It is a residential centre. They provide basic facilities for underprivileged children, distressed widows/mothers and abandoned old folks.
4. Malaysia Independent Pet Rescuers
Malaysia Independent Animal Rescue Foundation is a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer dog rescue organization serving the Selangor area in Malaysia. We are dedicated to rescuing dogs left homeless for a variety of reasons – dogs in public pounds where they are at high risk of euthanasia due to pet overpopulation, dogs are given up by their owners because of difficult circumstances, and those in danger of abuse or neglect.
To the extent our finances allow, dogs in the greatest need take priority. We are determined to keep administrative expenses extremely low so that virtually every dollar taken in goes directly to the care of the animals. Our group remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dog beyond the adoption process.
5. Shelter Home for (Abused) Women and Children
The Home will provide temporary placement and shelter for those women and children who are victims of domestic violence and have nowhere else to go. All races and religions are welcomed.
It was not put up in the form of a hostel, rather, it represents a ‘home away from home’ for the traumatized women and children who come to us for shelter, a place where they can pause, to emerge strengthened with a new lease on life.
6. Montfort Youth Centre
It is run by The Brothers at St Gabriel who has been in Malaysia for more than forty years. Montfort Boys Town was started to help boys who are orphaned and for those who come from underprivileged families.
7. Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO)
WAO provides a home to battered women and their children. The refuge is also a centre for WAO’s activities relating to family matters.
Since 1982, WAO has provided free crisis support and shelter to women and children who face abuse. Today, WAO are the largest service provider for domestic violence survivors in Malaysia.
8. Kampung Kemensah Orang Asli Village
Headed by Tok Batin, Ebak a/l Pulasan, the Temuan village situated about two to three km from Kampung Kemensah, behind Zoo Negara, Kuala Lumpur comprises 13 families. There are 8 school-going children in the village.
Electric power to the village is provided by a fuel generator. Although only less than 10 minutes drive from the township of Taman Melawati, they have not had the benefit of electricity supply all this time. The nearest electricity supply stops at Kampung Kemensah. They also receive some assistance from the Welfare Ministry.
9. Caremongering Malaysia (Community Response To Covid-19)
Caremongering is a Facebook group established with an emphasis on helping the elderly in any possible way.
This group is a plea to younger, more able people to extend their efforts to check on elderly neighbours, get supplies, shop for groceries, deliver food, etc. for those who are unable to perform such duties at the moment.
10. Pit Stop Community Cafe
Pit Stop is a platform for groups and individuals who want to give back to society and assist members of marginalised communities through food, essential services and training with the ultimate aim of reintegration into conventional society, should they so choose, but have little to no knowledge on how to do so.
On any given day, they run a café that enforces a ‘pay it forward’ system relying on the kindness of patrons and their own contributions to feeding the homeless and hungry.
