The Support a Family programme matches vulnerable refugee families living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with individual or group sponsors to provide the family with regular support. The type of support that can be provided includes food, cleaning items, and personal care items. Alternatively, it is possible to provide funding to cover any other specific need, such as rental, school or medical costs.
The programme seeks to benefit those refugees and asylum seekers at particular risk and unable to access other services and forms of support. It also assists refugees and asylum seekers unable to work legally and with difficulty making ends meet. Families in need of support include families with small children and those facing health problems.
Supporting a family is easy. MSRI has a list with the description of the families who are in need of support. You, as a sponsor, can select the family who you wish to support and MSRI will ensure that the items donated are given to the chosen family. You can choose to remain anonymous or MSRI can, in some cases, organise supervised visits or provide updates.
Alternatively, if you want to contribute to helping these families in need but you do not wish to select a specific family, MSRI will ensure that your support goes to those families in greater need of assistance. Sponsors can be individuals, families, small businesses or large corporations. Find out more by emailing email@example.com
