By Whom: Pastor Jacop and Bridget David
It was officially launched in 1994 as a foster home for orphans, abandoned, abused and neglected children from broken families.
They shared their newfound vision to Rev. Joseph Ramayah and his wife Stella Ramayah, the senior church pastors of Christian Life Centre, Malaysia. They embraced this unique vision into their church and since then together with their church board they have been a great blessing and encouragement to this ministry. Consistently they give financial assistance and spiritual guidance to this work.
In the year 2000 this ministry was formally registered as Shepherd’s Centre Foundation. Initially this home started with only 2 children, now there are 97 children. They are in upper-secondary, lower-secondary, primary, kindergarten and nursery curriculums. Few children are learning skills in Montfort Boys Town in Shah Alam and non-school going children are in the in-house skill-training programmes.
Referrals for this foundation comes from the National Social Welfare Department, police, hospitals, churches, prison departments, NGO’s, individuals and family members.

Goals For The Home for Terminally Ill Children
* To provide shelter and care for children who are terminally ill due to the failure for cells to reproduce, generate or undergo repair. We will also cater other forms of reproductive health problems, especially for the homeless and abandoned children. This home will only accommodate eight to ten children with illness at any one time. This is to facilitate better personal attention to each child.
* To provide these children a loving, caring and meaningful environment in order to develop them into holistic persons.
* To guide and to provide these children the opportunity to develop physically, mentally, emotionally, socially and spiritually.
* To provide the necessary general education, medical attention and loving care during the final stages of the disease or illness.
* To encourage research into these cases and so discover ways of preventing or relieving the suffering caused by discrimination, abandonment and other related factors. We will also keep such statistics and basic records available to facilitate research.
* To educate and inform the public, the media and the relevant authorities, of these children and to encourage the support by professional workers for the purpose of helping such children deal and overcome their problems.
* To campaign for and promote the need for affordable and accessible health care centers open to all in need of help.
