Foodbank was launched in April 2009, in response to the increasing numbers of needy families, single parents, street people, homeless, migrants and many other people affected by challenging times and global recession. It provides basic essential food items and supports other ministries that are ministering to people in need.

The Street Ministry reaches out to the homeless, hungry and needy by extending a hand of help and friendship.  We seek to let them know that there is hope and a future for them and that God is waiting to give them a new lease of life.

In Kuala Lumpur,  we operates a Street Fellowship [KL Urban Fellowship] that runs a Drop-in Centre and to assist in the Jalan Sultan food sharing programme (a network of churches) on Saturdays. Our latest initiative, Employment Point seeks to provide simple packing work and teach living skills in order to assist in placing people back into the workplace through referrals.

Government centres and housing in Kuala Lumpur
Anjung Singgah
Anjung Singgah is a temporary shelter in the centre of Kuala Lumpur for adult Malaysians who have tested negative for drugs. The key aim of the centre is to support residents to find work within a two week stay which is often extended. However, such a ‘work first model’ that does not resolve or manage other underlying conditions such as health issues first, is unlikely to provide sustainable long-term solution.

Pusat Transit Gelandangan
There are two transit centres for homeless people. The older one at Medan Tuanku offers toilets,
bathrooms, prayer rooms and is a food distribution point. The second centre was opened in early 2016. It is a three story building that can house up to 250 homeless people.


Sekolah Bimbingan Jalinan Kasih
A school for homeless children opened in Chow Kit in 2017 and enrolled around fifty children. These
children are enrolled by parents but also proactively identified in the streets with the aim to break the issue of intergenerational homelessness and social disadvantage (Ram, 2015).


Desa Bina Diri
Desa Bina Diri (DBD) are shelters with rehabilitation for beggars and vagrants under the Welfare Department. Sungai Buloh DBD can house 200 people, other DBD facilities are located in Johor (Mersing), Pahang
(Jerantut) and Sabah (Kota Kinabalu). The shelters provide food and lodging, counselling, recreational
facilities, healthcare and practical training such as in agriculture, vocational skills and handicraft (The Star Online, 2014).


Program Rumah Bimbingan
A recent programme makes available 10 units in two low-cost public housing estates (PPR flats) to cohouse four homeless people each. The units are rented for RM 30 per person per month. The tenants come from transit homes, are employed and have not history of mental illness or drug addiction.


NGO services to homeless people in Kuala Lumpur
There are many organisations and individuals seeking to help the homeless or hope to reduce
homelessness. Their philosophy, level of professionalism, target group among the homeless and services can differ greatly. There is no official registration or quality framework making it difficult to coordinate activities, find gaps and avoid duplication. NGO Hub has attempted to collate a list on their website. The majority provide some sort of food distribution with or without added services. Some of the larger established NGOs are Kechara Soup Kitchen, Pit Stop Community Café, PERTIWI and Streetfeeders of KL. 

Kechara Soup Kitchen
Kechara Soup Kitchen is a permanent soup kitchen serving 180 meals every weekday plus food
distribution on weekends. It is a Buddhist organization with services reaching from homeless people to urban poor. It operates a food bank that is stocked with donations from TESCO and supplies 850 food parcels a week. Kechara also provides medical and counseling services and other support. Strong leadership, media profile and advocacy work make them one of the main players.


PERTIWI – Pertubuhan Tindakan Wanita Islam
PERTIWI is a long established NGO supporting women and children under leadership of Mdm Munirah Abdul Hamid and with funding from corporate and individual sponsors. In 2010, it launched a soup kitchen that is now providing food to around 800 people per week at a number of locations. Additional services and free medical assistance is also provided. 

Pitstop Community Café
Pitstop Community Café is a social enterprise seeking to reduce homelessness, urban poverty and hunger. Six days a week, the Café reaches out to marginalised communities through food, mainly through its ‘pay what you can’ dinner service with the aim of re-integrating them into society. Once connected, it offers job training and placement including a culinary arts program for marginalised youth. A third focus in working with other soup kitchens and food banks to reduce food waste, redistributing food still fit for consumption.
Streetfeeders of KL Streetfeeders of KL is a grassroots organization of mainly young professional people seeking to reintegrate
homeless people back into society. Their food distribution to around 300 people per fortnight is a means to engage and build trust with homeless people.
