Kuala Lumpur has experienced a new emerging social group in recent years; an influx of migrants from surrounding rural areas who are basically poor, unemployed or elderly employment that they have been unable to find in their home towns. They are often without shelter, or do not have the means to provide shelter for themselves, and are a very vulnerable group exposed to begging syndicates and other exploitation.
The TSM Charity Golf Foundation have combined their efforts with the Ministry of Women, Family & Community Development (KPWKM) and the National Welfare Foundation (Malaysia) to create a half-way house. This facility will provide much needed shelter, meals, counseling and a link to employment or next of kin.
The land allotted for this project is in Titiwangsa, Kuala Lumpur, adjacent to the Tan Sri Muhyiddin Charity Dialysis Centre. The development cost of setting up the facility is estimated to be in the region of two and a half million Ringgit, with a further half a million Ringgit allowance contributed annually to cover operational, staff and maintenance costs.
