Making change happen

We want children out of institutions and cared for by families. This vision drives OrphanCare.

Giving children back their lives

To end the practice of children being raised in institutions; transitioning to a family and community based care system that will end the disturbing trend in babies being abandoned is a big task that requires a multifaceted approach.

Baby Hatch

Addressing a serious social concern of baby dumping. Since 2009, OrphanCare has been setting up baby hatches as a safe place for babies whose birth mothers are often desperate or in a state of mind that could endanger their newborns. Help us extend our reach to provide safe havens for babies all across Malaysia.

Deinstitutionali­sation

There is an urgent need to protect and nurture our vulnerable children in institutions. DI is a massive undertaking involving all levels and strata of government, corporations and civil society and we urge financial supporters of child-care institutions to urgently advise their organisations about this paradigm shift.

Change systems, change lives

Children are our most precious asset. It is therefore our responsibility to ensure that less privileged Malaysian children are given opportunities to achieve their best potential.

Adoption

In pursuit of DI and saving babies in baby hatches, we advocate and facilitate adoptions to take children out of institutions. Adoption is an essential part of our mission to save the lives of babies who are at risk and to give Malaysian children in institutions a chance to experience the joy of growing up in a family.
