Malaysian Care

How we started

The Malaysian Care story is simple yet big in dreams. Sometime in the late 1970s, a group of young Christians were inspired to put their faith into action.  A Board was soon elected in 1978, comprising 11 visionaries like Wong Kim Kong, Lim Heng Seng, Lim Wei Meng, Shirley Lee, Jack Cheah, Liew Chee Kien, Steven Chong and Doreen Chan, with David Boler, Rev. Douglas Anderson and Timothy Phua as advisors.

Malaysian Care became official in 1979 as a registered establishment and started its first home “Rumah Care” which provided shelter for children whose parents were patients at Sungai Buloh Leprosarium. On 1st January 1980, Rev Peter Young was appointed the first Executive Director of Malaysian Care.

From then till now, our purpose remains to encourage active social work amongst the churches in Malaysia, being the visible expression of the wholistic mission of Christ although the expressions of our actions may be have taken different directions according to the needs of the current time.

Where we are today

Malaysian Care today is an organisation offering diversified services such as residential care and community services and is strongly committed to community development. Beginning with just a staff team of five, today we have over 60 staff. Apart from direct services by staff and partners, we seek to inform, educate and encourage Christians to be involved with the poor and deprived. Malaysian Care also offers consultancy, partnerships and networking with Churches and groups to set up social caring ministries across Malaysia.
