Who are we

Rumah Charis is a non-profit Christian organisation comprising of two Homes – a Home for the Children and a Home for the Aged. It was founded in 1988 by Reverend Teo How Ken as a home to serve the old and the aged. Since their inception, their ministries have expanded to include children and youth. Rumah Charis is registered as a social welfare home with the Registrar Society of Malaysia and is a member of the Kuala Lumpur Social Welfare Department.

Our objectives
The Home’s Vision for the children is to provide a suitable environment for orphans and also for underprivileged, neglected and single-parent children.The Home will also provide spiritual direction, ensure that every child will have the opportunity to have a complete education and will try their best to reconcile the children with their parents.

Those who have been emotionally hurt will be provided with counselling and encouragement and the Home will cultivate good values in the children with the hope that they will be good citizens one day.

For the Senior Citizens at Rumah Charis,the Home’s aim is to provide shelter, medical care, spiritual guidance and counselling services.The Home will try to reunite them with their relatives in their Homeland and also see to the funeral arrangements for those who pass away during their stay at the Home.

Currently, there are 30 children living in the Home. The Home for the Aged is accommodating 17 senior citizens.

Our activities

Rumah Charis also runs, as a community project, V.S.O.P Club, a club for senior citizens launched in Petaling Jaya to serve the community. V.S.O.P club stands for Very Strong Old People club.
