Helping at home
The Malaysia Assistance Fund
When it comes to helping those in need, there’s no better place to start than at home. The Malaysia Assistance Fund aims to support children and child-related development work in Malaysia. This includes child rights protection, education, nutrition and health care.
In line with this goal, a key beneficiary of the Malaysia Assistance Fund is World Vision Malaysia’s Community Development Programme in Mukim Tulid, Sabah.
Bringing change to Mukim Tulid, Sabah
Sabah has the highest poverty rate in Malaysia (8.1%)*. To address the pressing needs of Sabah’s poor communities, we worked with local partners to pilot a Community Development Programme in Mukim Tulid.
With a focus on child well-being, we hope to build up the community and partner with them in building a sustainable future. The programme started in 2014 and focuses on:
Contributions to the Malaysia Assistance Fund also benefit Beautiful Gate Foundation for the Disabled, Dignity for Children Foundation, Malaysian CARE, Pusat Kebajikan Good Shepherd, Yayasan Sin Chew, Elshaddai/Migrant Ministry Klang, Fugee School and PACOS Trust.
The difference starts with you!
Poverty and need are all around us, but they aren’t impossible problems. Make a contribution now to bring hope to our children and communities right here in Malaysia.
