Rumah Charis Home for the Aged

Overview

Rumah Charis (Home for the Aged) is a welfare organisation whereby they provide shelter, support and medical care to destitute old folks and it is a non-profit Christian based organisation. Through the establishment of a senior’s home, the organisation hope that the destitute and homeless can now have a place they can call their home where they are also able to enjoy better quality of life. IMU has been starting the healthcare project with them since 2014. The project is to identify the need of the old folks and subsequently we can help them at the right direction. We have been conducting more than 10 visits to the Rumah Charis for two years. There are many activities had been carried out since then that enriched the lives of the elderly residents at Rumah Charis.
