Other services of Shelter
Shelter provides other services which are of increasing importance:
- Refugee Work
Do you know that there are currently more than 50,000 refugees in Malaysia? Seventy percent of these refugees and asylum-seekers are men, while thirty percent are women. There are some 9,200 refugee children below the age of 18, mostly living with their families, but almost 400 of them have since separated from their families.

- Food & Financial Aid
Shelter Home provides food and financial aid to families. Its purpose is to preserve the family unit by providing the basic needs for their children such as food; finance for tuition, school fees, school bus expenses, etc. We believe that poverty should never be the reason to remove any child from concerned and loving parents. By providing "on-site" assistance to the parents, we hope that the assistance will filter down and benefit the children. All our cases are generally referred to us by the general public. On hearing of a particular need, we would normally evaluate the case carefully and assess how we can effectively help the family. The focus is always on the children - mainly the needs of parents relating to their children's education and well being. Read more here . . .
