Who are we
The orphanage was founded in 1996, the foster home was established by Manjung Hindu Sabha (MHS), an organisation working under the umbrella of the Malaysia Hindu Sangam. The home was set up with the aim of improving of the general welfare of needy children. The children have either been orphaned, abandoned, abused, or from a poor social background.
They are looked after by staffs who also came to the ashram seeking shelter. Currently, there are 23 boys and 22 girls, aged between three to 19 years old.
The average expenses of the orphanage per month are RM 2,500-00 (US$675). These expenses include food, medical expenses, housing, transportation, as well as costs for a caretaker/cook.
The orphanage is a totally voluntary and non-profit organisation and can survive only by the generous support and donations which are provided by kind-hearted people from all over the world.
Volunteers are welcome to contribute time and efforts to participate in their activities include:
1) Weekly lessons on Hinduism
2) Daily Puja and Bhakans
3) Handicraft classes
4) Dance classes
5) Outdoor activities and outings

The foster home is housed in a spacious bungalow together with the ashram.
They are waiting for Government’s approval to build another building next to the present building to separate the boys and girls. They estimate it to be approved by end of the year. They have started a building fund and collected RM80,000 so far.
Any form of assistance is welcome. For cash donations, please make cheques out to “Malaysia Hindu Sangam”.
