In support for charity organisations for their good deeds, starting off this year of 2013, featuring Hospis Malaysia (You can find the details in their website, but all the important facts is summarized here)
Who are they?
Hospis Malaysia is a charitable organization that offers professional Palliative Care to patients who are suffering from life-limiting illness, and who live within Klang Valley. Care extended by Hospis Malaysia transcends age, gender, culture, religion and social standing and is offered free-of-charge.
Where are they?
Located at Taman Sri Bahtera, Cheras, Hospis Malaysia serves as the base for the operational team, and houses within it office space, a Daycare Centre, a Resource Centre, a Counselling Room, and a Training Centre for the workshops we conduct regularly.
What are they?
Not affiliated with any political, religious, governmental or private groups, Hospis Malaysia depends entirely on individual and corporate support as its’ source of funds. Besides donations received, the numerous fundraising events organised by Hospis Malaysia ensure a steady stream of fund inflow to enable continuous and effective running of the hospice. Funds received are managed by a team of council members who act, on a voluntary basis, as trustees of Hospis Malaysia’s funds while full time staff, headed by the CEO/Medical Director, handle the operational aspects of the hospice.
What they do?
Hospis Malaysia provides the best possible Palliative Care services to the community based on their needs. We also provide training and education to health professionals in the necessary skills of Palliative Care to provide relief of suffering that affects patients and their families.

How to help support them?
How are they funded?
As Hospis Malaysia’s clinical services are provided free-of-charge, we are largely dependent on donations and contributions of the generous public and corporate sector as our main source of funds. Approximately RM 3.0 million is incurred a year in operating expenses – and these include cost of medicine and medical equipment, training and education cost, staff remuneration and general administration cost.
Besides public and corporate pledges and contributions, donations also come from families of patients whom we care for. These are purely voluntary contributions since Hospis Malaysia does not charge any of its patients.
In order to ensure a continuous inflow of funds, Hospis Malaysia regularly organizes its own fundraising events. Besides helping to raise funds, such events also provide an avenue for Hospis Malaysia to create awareness of palliative care among the public.
Our regular fund-raising events include:
- The Annual Charity Treasure Hunt,
- The Annual Charity Bazaar, and
- The Biennial Voices for Hospices Dinner
All cash donations made to Hospis Malaysia are issued with tax exempt receipts.
In January 2013, we hope to host our inaugural Charity Golf Tournament – click here for more details.
Corporate support also sometimes comes in the form of donation of medical equipment such as oxygen concentrators, ripple mattresses, nebulisers, pulse oximeters, and office equipment such as computers.
Ok, time for action from our part, to help in ways that we can to support this charitable organization.
