Who We Are
HASS is a non-governmental organisation and growing collaboration among refugees and local Malaysians to address the immediate day-to-day living concerns and overall issue of mass displacement of the Rohingya people and other stateless persons living in Malaysia. Stateless communities been living undocumented and largely ignored under the radar for several generations .
In early 2017, we established the Human Aid Selangor Society and Rainbow of Love Learning Centre with the purpose of having one dedicated centre for coordinating aid services and providing learning opportunities to displaced children and their families. The core members of our team comprise of dedicated volunteers and experienced working professionals from different backgrounds and sectors, including students, artists, filmmakers, public defenders, entrepreneurs and teachers.
Human Aid Society Selangor is registered with the Ministry of Social Welfare (JKM) and is a non-profit regulated under the Non-Governmental Organisations Act 2016.
HASS was established to create social impact without any underlying profit-making objective and is 100% publicly funded. Rainbow of Love operates under HASS.
