Who are we

Happiness centre is a safe haven for the intellectually and physically challenged  children of Melaka. This home was founded by Mr. Roy Collar, in  2000. Children who have no one to love or care for them are the first ones to gain acceptance into this special home. Most of these precious children are either abandoned or come from very poor families. Some of them come from broken or single parent homes. Their families are not able to send them to institutions, workshops or day-care centres, which expect a monthly fee.

Observation from Hati.my’s site visit: “But with the number of children, some of whom are fast becoming adults, their needs have grown, and the manager has said they are in dire need of funds for the long term. Most of these differently abled children are left behind by parents too poor to look after them on their own, and also have no time to support the place by visiting the children they left behind. “

Happiness centre on the other hand do not charge any fees, the reason being that the poor innocent children will be left to degenerate, because the families are not able to come up with the up-keep fee.

There are 35 inmates at the home and all are physically or mentally disabled. Their ages range from 5 years to 34 years. All of these special children are not able to fend for themselves, even for their most basic needs. 20 of them require pampers and 21 of them have to be fed. Most of these children have multiple disabilities ranging from cerebral palsy, polio paralysis, speech impairment blindness and mental disorders.

Our services

Happiness centre employs 10 caretakers to cater to the children’s needs.  Most of all they try to shower them with love and affection. The utmost priority of the centre is that the children are always clean and in pink of health. With GOD’S help and the generosity of the caring public, they try to keep this centre operational and hope to raise enough funds to buy own premises, so as to able to cater to more of these special children. Happiness Centre tries to give them a dignified life and hope that in some small way, they may be able to enjoy a little sunshine in their lives.

Number of Paid Staff: 10
Estimated Monthly Expenditure: Approximately RM17,000

How to find us

From Malacca Town head towards Klebang which is near the coast. Along the main road, Jalan Pokok Mangga, look out for a high-rise condominium called Selat Horizon. Immediately after the entrance to Selat Horizon is the turn-off into Taman Anggerik (Jalan Anggerik 1). A Taman Anggerik signboard sits at the turn-off. Take the turning and the house is on your left about 30 metres from the turning.
