ADOPT A FAMILY          

BACKGROUND

Many families in Langkawi struggle to cope with the costs of day to day living.

Whilst Malaysia is not a welfare state, some benefits are available. We assist families to apply for whatever benefits they may be entitled to, provide food parcels every 4 weeks and introduce sponsors for education costs, but still some families do not have enough money for basic living costs.

HOW SPONSORS CAN HELP

Sponsors  'adopt' a family to help with the cost of food parcels currently RM 130 every 4 weeks for basic essentials and fresh vegetables.  Some families also receive infant milk and nappies.

Sponsors can also help with other costs if they wish.

We are happy to account to sponsors for expenditure.

HOW IT WORKS

We  provide interested sponsors with family details and photographs for the sponsor to choose.

Payment in advance either quarterly, six monthly or yearly can be made by cash, cheque, transfer to our bank account or Paypal.  A receipt will be issued and 100% of the funds received are allocated to that family.

UPDATES

We provide updates from time to time on the family and we continually monitor their progress. If we feel that sponsorship is no longer necessary, we discuss the options with the sponsor.

VISITS

If sponsors are visiting or live in Langkawi we are happy to arrange family visits.
