The AUTORR Foundation Centre is a rest and recreation centre for senior citizens and their families. It is the first of its kind in Malaysia. The AUTORR Foundation Centre is a place where the elders can participate in fun-filled activities to keep them active and healthy.
The AUTORR Foundation Centre is an excellent place for the elders to meet new friends and have social interaction with their peers. Here at the AUTORR Foundation Centre, the elders can also learn new skills and share their lifelong wealth of experience and knowledge with their new-found friends and the younger generation.
The AUTORR Foundation was founded by Yap Swee Lin, fondly known as Lin Chua – the grand-daughter of Malaya’s last Chinese Kapitan, the late Kapitan Yap Kwan Seng.
The AUTORR Foundation Centre is built upon land donated by Lin. After observing an alarming trend that old folks spend a lot of time at home with very little physical and mental activities, Lin followed the philanthropic footsteps of her grandfather and initiated the project now known as the AUTORR (Aged Unite To Organize Rest & Recreation) Foundation.
The AUTORR Foundation Centre is a non-profit, non-racial and non religious place for the senior citizens to keep themselves occupied with fun-filled activities and to keep their social circles.
The Centre is not an old folk’s home. The elderly do not stay here but rather they can come in and out of the centre at anytime for however long that they want to join in the activities or just to relax and have tea. At the end of the day, they must go home to their families.
The AUTORR Foundation was founded based on the principal to provide senior citizens a social place where they can go to for rest and recreation with their contemporaries.
Since its conception through to its realization, The AUTORR Foundation has successfully gained the endorsement and blessings of government agencies such as:
- Kementerian Perpaduan Negara dan Pembangunan Masyarakat (Ministry of National Unity & Social Development)
- Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (Ministry of Health)
- Pejabat Daerah Tanah Ulu Langat (District Office of Ulu Langat)
- Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri (Minister of Domestic Trade)
The AUTORR Foundation Centre now stands as the fruit and testament of the labor of love brought forth by numerous charity fund raising drives and also from charitable donations.
Volunteers are most welcome. The AUTORR Foundation is a non-profit organization that aims to improve the physical and mental health of senior citizens in Malaysia. They are constantly looking for people with big heart who will join them in this effort for a good cause. Reach out and make a difference.
They are now working extremely hard to get donations & sponsorships to fill-up the entire centre before expected operations before end of 2012. All contributions are Income Tax Exempted (LDHN.01/35/42/51/179-6.5672).
You, your team members & friends, and family members are welcome to visit the centre to have a better insight on their centre’s mission & objectives. Please contact for an appointment for the site visit from 9a.m. – 5p.m. (Mon – Fri).
