Care Shelter Kuala Lumpur

Proposed by : Care Shelter Kuala Lumpur


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the MCO and restrictions of travel / tourism, many hotels and hospitality businesses have closed down in Malaysia. At the same time, many people in Malaysia are struggling financially; cases of eviction and termination have been on a sharp rise.

We are transforming a capsule hostel into a general shelter; located on Jalan Chow Kit, Kuala Kumpur, for those who are facing financial difficulties, been evicted or lost work. The shelter will be a temporary place for the beneficiaries to stay while they get their lives back on track. We are working with multiple NGOs in order to establish and run the project and will build beneficiary development programs (Education / Skills / Employment..).
Funding: Crowd-funded + individual / corporate sponsorship + donations + grants
