Brief Report of Yayasan Sin Chew
Yayasan Sin Chew (“Yayasan”) was established on 25th. October, 2000.
Over the years, Yayasan has become a platform to systematically marshall public support for individual causes and major catastrophes, such as the SARS epidemic in 2003, the Tsunami Disaster in 2004, the Johor Flood in 2006, Penang Flood in 2017 and, most recently, COVID-19 outbreak in 2020.
Donations to Front-liners & NGOs :
Yayasan had initiated charitable efforts - the "Fight for Life, Action to Save" Donation Campaign to help the medical front-liners and underprivileged communities affected by the Covid-19 outbreak.
Since 24th March 2020, the donations have gone timely to support the urgent needs for the front-liners, initially to the designated 26 Covic-19 hubs (General Hospitals).
We had donated the personal protective equipment (PPE) such as coverall protective gears, complete isolation gown with tudung, face shields, gloves, shoe covers, scrubs and surgical masks. Fo Guang Shan Malaysia & Chi Hui Tang Malaysia (Buddhist NGOs) together have contributed their resources in distributions of these PPE nationwide.
The support from Yayasan also includes the acute shortage medical equipment, i.e. power air purifying respirator (PAPR) and general anaesthesia machines for various designated hospitals in both East and West Malaysia. The above equipment have provided a tremendous help to these resource-strained state Covid Hospitals fighting the current pandemic and for its future need.
We undertook initiatives with the collaboration of Buddhist’s Light International Association Malaysia Chapter (BLIA), to support the underprivileged communities, financially hit due to the Movement Control Order (MCO) and the pandemic. We managed to donate 228 deserved NGOs, which include disabled institutions, old folk homes, orphanage, mental health centers, hospice centers, etc. Besides funding RM 200 per person for adoptees of the qualified charitable centers, we also donated facemasks accordingly.
The similar solicitation of donation from public was specifically exercised on the critical Sabah Covid-19 pandemic starting 13th.October, 2020 together with Sabah Medical Association (SAMA).
All the contribution has summed up to an aggregate value of RM 5M (Five Million Ringgit Malaysia) benefited over 83 government hospitals, clinics, dialysis centers and government bodies (e.g. PDRM) nationwide.
“ We Care : Sponsor-A-Child” Program :
Yayasan launched the "We Care :Sponsor-A-Child” Program in 2004 and re-direct the donations to hundreds of poor students every year for their education fees and daily needs.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of the parents or guardians of the aided students under this Program are part-time workers, lost their job and face problems paying their rental, utilities fees and buying their daily necessities during this MCO period.
In view of this, Yayasan has decided to donate in monetary to 179 families (out of 300 families) as an urgent and emergency support.
Medical Financial Aid :
Yayasan also raises fund for individuals who are in urgent need, such as those suffering from critical diseases and require immediate medical attention.
In general, when the stories of needy individuals and victims are reported in Sin Chew Daily, donations flooded Yayasan office. Overwhelming support of donations both locally and overseas are received through on-line transfer, internet transfer, cheques and cash.
