In 1878, a group of local Chinese in Hong Kong presented a petition to the Governor of Hong Kong, John Pope Hennessy to set up the Po Leung Kuk to rescue the kidnapped victims. The main objective of Po Leung Kuk is to care for the young and protect the innocent.

The Kuala Lumpur Po Leung Kuk Committee was established in 1895 under the administration of Mrs. Daly.[1]
