History[edit]

Malaysian CARE was founded in 1979 by a group of young Christians. The first Board was elected on 24 November 1978, composed of Wong Kim Kong, Lim Heng Seng, Lim Wei Meng, Shirley Lee, Jack Cheah, Liew Chee Kien, Steven Chong, and Doreen Chan. The first Advisors were Mr. David Boler, Rev. Douglas Anderson and Mr. Timothy Phua. On 1 January 1980, Rev. Peter Young was appointed as the first Executive Director of Malaysian Care.[3]

In April 1979 the Malaysian Care pioneers set up their first home, Rumah Care, a home for children whose parents were patients and residents of the Sungai Buloh Leprosarium. The first intake was 11 children . Later, over the years, various services and homes were set up for mentally ill, drug dependents, prisoners, disabled persons and the Orang Asli work.

Activities[edit]

In 2013, one of the organization's community staff members, visited PLC with TARC (Tunku Abdul Rahman College) interns to assist in the interviewing and counseling of residents. This was to benefit them for their counseling degree. The Malaysian CARE staff and students conducted a prayer for the residents.[4] On 8 March 2014, Malaysian CARE was invited to Kajang Assembly of God to educate and share about the activities in which they engage as part of the church’s initiative to bless the less fortunate.[5]
