Refugee Information
First of all, you must know that at the end of September 2015, there were around 153,850 refugees and asylum-seekers registered with UNHCR in Malaysia. Some 57% of refugees and asylum-seekers are men, while 43% are women. Also, there are 33,740 children below the age of 18.

Secondly, the population of Malaysia in the year of 2013 equalled to 29.72 million, while the population of Kuala Lumpur equals to 1.589 million. Unfortunately, there are no proven statistics regarding the number of undocumented foreigners in the country.

Adding to that, there are no refugee camps in Malaysia and refugees live in small low cost over crowded flats in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor areas. And there are no legal or administrative frameworks in place in country in order to address the refugee situation. Also, there is no difference between refugees and undocumented migrants in Malaysian law, therefore the possibility of them getting arrested is quite high and they have no access to formal employment. Nevertheless, their children don’t have access to formal education. Even though they have access to health care but the costs are usually unaffordable for them.

Therefore, Rising Hands Organization tries to help and solve these issues by introducing different approaches and programs. We are looking forward your support in contributing donations or funds to our programs. Your supports are highly appreciated.
