Towards a caring society

Yayasan Orang Kurang Upaya Kelantan (YOKUK) or Kelantan Foundation For The Disabled, is a charitable foundation established to alleviate the plight of the people with disabilities and to give them a meaningful life. YOKUK first started its activities in July 1999, at the Rumah Seri Kenangan Seri Kembangan, Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan. Currently, YOKUK provided services to approximately 3,300 registered clients free of charge at our own centre in Jalan Padang Tembak, Pengkalan Chepa. For the past 13 years, YOKUK has established itself well in being a one stop centre for the disabled community. We provide all kinds of therapy services, welfare services and also vocational training.

YOKUK aims to build on the spirit of a caring society through its CBR (Community-based Rehabilitation) Program. The underlying structure of the CBR Program is founded upon the principles that the local community, in which the disabled people reside, has the duty and responsibility to assist them to fully realize their equal rights as citizens and human beings.

Therefore, the clients registered with YOKUK are with their family at their home. They only come to YOKUK daily for therapy program, workshop, vocational class or any other activities organised by YOKUK. For clients who come from poor families or live in impoverished rural areas hence can’t afford to come to our centre, YOKUK will visit them at their homes. During this visit, we teach the family member on how to take care of the disabled as well as do simple physio therapy.
