Who we are

Selangor Family Aid Association is a non profit organisation with a primary aim of providing a home for the aged, handicapped, mentally retarded Down syndrome and the orphanage.

Our history

The Selangor Family Aid Association is a voluntary multi racial welfare organisation. It was established on the 8th of July 1988 by Mr Pusparajah Gunaratnam(G.P. Raj ), with the primary aim to help the needy such as the Old Folks, The Mentally Retarded , The Handicapped, The Down Syndrome and The Orphanage children etc. .In the past, the Association has also helped with provisions for the Poor and The Orang Asli (natives), and provided school meals for less privileged children. Due to the growing demands with the in house residents and lack of funding it has become necessary to just focus on the residents at hand.

Originally, the residents were accommodated in rented houses comprising a total of 12 residents. As the numbers grew, it was getting increasingly difficult to meet the needs of the residents. Hence, our founder member Mr G. P. Raj decided to build a better and a more permanent home for this unfortunate and under privileged society.

Currently, The Association has 87 residents and are able to accommodate up to 150. We also have about 15 members of staff, providing the necessary help and medical attention in the management of the home.

To maintain the home successfully, the Association is in constant need of funds, approximately Rm47,000 per month. At this level of funding, it is often a huge challenge. However, the management is always looking forward for ways in pushing the boundaries further in its struggle to have a smooth operation of the home.

Our objectives

  • To provide care and attention for the needy such as The Old Folks, The Mentally Retarded, The Orphanage, The Down Syndrome etc. Specialist nursing care is often required. However, it is given to each individual but the level of care is dependent on the number of specialised staff that can be employed successfully.
  •  To provide shelter for the abused: especially child abuse and destitute single mothers with low or no income. A lot of domestic violence are on the increase and women and children are often left homeless and it is also the prerogative of the Association to handle each case on its merit.
  • To establish and manage a haemodialysis centre. It is a centre for the dialysis patients, especially with diabetic cases. Unfortunately, a lot of people die needlessly due to the lack of these facilities and sheer costs to the individual. Hence, it is the aim of the Association to provide financial aid for the poor who are unable to meet these dialysis costs.
  • To establish and manage a clinic and medical service centre for the residents of the home and the under privileged. This will be not only an invaluable aid to the residents but properly harnessed it could generate an income for the future for the home.

Our activities

The residents are always encouraged to participate in recommended daily  activities in order to keep their minds and bodies in healthy condition. These are considered to be therapeutic and a good pastime.

Although most of the residents are not capable to carry out any responsible activities of their own, the staff do however conduct special occupational therapy programmes such as handy crafts and painting.

At times, the residents are given outing entertainments usually by voluntary groups. These may include dinners, social functions and other sight seeing activities.

Our needs

Monthly expenses: RM47,000

We therefore appeal to your sympathetic and humanitarian sentiments in helping us to provide the basic amenities of life to these underprivileged human beings who are in want of attention and proper care.
