What is Our Mission?

To demonstrate God’s love by ministering to underprivileged, abused, abandoned and orphaned children, irrespective of race, creed or religion for the enhancement of their holistic well-being.

 

Objectives of Rumah Sayangan

To operate homes in which the abused, underprivileged and less fortunate children of our society can have their various needs met.

To counsel parents whose children are in our home and by the time the children leave our home:

1.     They will be able to abide by the principles of the Rukunegara and Bible.

2.     Both parents and children will be reconciled to one another and have their hurts healed.

 

Vision Statement

Rumah Sayangan - a LOVING FAMILY

Every Child:

·         a DISCIPLINED individual

·         a COMPASSIONATE being

·         a RESPONSIBLE citizen

 

What is the Requirement for Admission?

The children should belong to any of the following categories:

1.     Those who are abused, abandoned or neglected by parents who themselves are in need of help because of problems due to alcohol, drug’s, illness or imprisonment.

2.     Those that are without parents or next-of-kin to nurture them.

3.     Those who are underprivileged and have parents whom are incapable whatsoever of providing for their basic needs.

There should be substantial evidence for all the above categories. The parents or referral person will be interviewed by the Management Committee or its representatives who will then discuss the validity and urgency of each case and will make a decision thereon.

 

What are Our Future Plans?

It is our desire to see God continue his mighty works through this ministry of caring. We would like:

1.     Capability to take in more children who are needy.

2.     More people will join hands with us in providing financial assistance / food provisions.
