Human Aid is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that provides humanitarian services to the most vulnerable displaced communities living in Malaysia. We provide aid in the form of education, medical relief, food supplies and skills training for undocumented refugees who are denied access to these basic needs and rights.
Our work focuses on the welfare of the Rohingya people living in Kuala Lumpur. We believe in creating global awareness on the issues and challenges stateless asylum seekers face through different grassroots based projects we run together with the community.
Human Aid is school/community centre/shelter under one roof. We provide access to basic education for children below the age of 13 through our school, medical attention via partnerships with local medical NGOs, and a needs-based food distribution programme. An estimated 10,000+ undocumented Rohingya refugees live in the greater Selayang area where our centre operates.
Human Aid also functions as part of a safe shelter network for neglected children, SGBV cases and single mothers. Our location acts as an important focal point for larger organisations such as UNHCR to engage with the Rohingya community as well as a place for connecting with other local institutions to address their concerns.
Rainbow of Love Informal School for Refugees (Sekolah Pelangi Kasih) is a learning centre officially registered with the UNHCR in 2016. Under Malaysian law, refugee children are legally barred from the public schooling system. Rainbow of Love was created to help address a child's right to an education and we hope to continue doing that for all children from all walks of life for years to come. It's a multicolored journey that we hope begins and ends with love.
