Our services for families facing financial difficulties

The Malaysian Children’s Aid Society (MACAS) was set up to provide short term assistance (usually financial) to families with children when these families face acute financial difficulties due to the recent illness of a child or of a parent. These are often families who have been coping previously but are now having problems caused by either the recent illness or disability or death of a parent who is the main source of income or the additional costs of medical treatment and/or travel costs to hospitals.

Application Process

Applications are forwarded to MACAS by the social workers in hospitals who use application forms that have been prepared by MACAS. If deserving, such financial aid is made available as soon as possible. The MACAS committee meets monthly to vet these applications and funds are usually made available within a week of the meeting to the most deserving families. Such financial aid is limited to six monthly payments. In exceptional cases, aid may be made available for an additional six months.

Our objectives

1. To serve the needs of children under the age of 18 years, irrespective of race and religion.

2. To provide foster homes and assistance to children whose families are destitute.

3. To co-operate with the local welfare department and voluntary organisations which share the same objectives.

4. To encourage and provide for the welfare of underprivileged children.
