Who are we

RUMAH JAIREH was set up in Batu Arang on the 7th of June 2005.
This home caters to the following needs:-

1) HIV+ women, with or without children, rendered homeless or rejected.
2) HIV+ children made homeless or rejected.
3) Sex workers and female drug addicts.
4) Women and children with special needs who cannot be taken in
by other homes or institutions, for some reason or other.

Our services

The home is open to all faiths and all races and will also serve as a halfway home until a suitable alternative or home can be found e.g. for unwed mothers. There are two experienced caregivers who are on duty round the clock on a rotational basis, with a doctor on standby.

The home’s premises is a seven-room bungalow in Batu Arang, which has a maximum capacity of 20 residents. Rental is RM500/- only. The choice of Batu Arang was made because of the low rental as well as privacy offered with regards to HIV/AIDS. The decision to mix the HIV+ and non-HIV+ cases was made so as to allay fears among the neighbours who may have social stigma towards people living with HIV/AIDS.

The home currently houses nine children, from five years to nine years old.

The home does not charge a fee, but those residents who can afford to pay are encouraged to do so.

Estimated monthly expenditure:     Between RM3,500 and RM4,000
