Warm greetings! The FunGates Superflow Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor and under-privileged community in Alor Setar and Kuala Lumpur through social, welfare, and health assistance.
The Foundation began its operations in Alor Setar, Kedah in 2001 but is now based in Jinjang, Kuala Lumpur. While it is important to provide relief to the poor, we firmly believe that a long-term solution lies in the transformation of the community and breaking the poverty cycle. The community of Jinjang, though not far from the city centre, is one such community which comprises many urban poor.
As our operations are funded solely by public donations, we are organizing a fund-raising charity dinner on Sunday, 02 July 2017, at the Grand Ballroom, Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
We believe that with support from kind-hearted individuals and socially responsible corporations such as your good selves, our charity dinner event will truly be a success. This will in turn provide us with the financial resources required to continue our work in community transformation.
Please find details of our work as well as a reply slip for the above-mentioned event in the attachment. All donations are tax-exempt and will be acknowledged by an official receipt. We look forward to your kind support and Reply Slip on or before 15 May 2017.
Let’s working together to give a better tomorrow to the underprivileged.
HERE ARE OUR OPERATIONS
We operate a Soup Kitchen situated in Jinjang, Kuala Lumpur where free meals are served to some 300 people daily. Complementing our Soup Kitchen, Love on Wheels is a daily program where free meals are distributed to about 600 residents of designated long houses and low-cost flat areas in Jinjang. While our Soup Kitchen and Love on Wheels provide daily relief to the poor, the only sustainable approach is through community transformation.
Education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. It is only through education that poor children can complete at least a secondary if not university education and secure meaningful jobs to help break the poverty cycle and prevent school dropouts. We therefore operate a pre-school for children aged 4 to 6 to give them a strong academic and social foundation to succeed in primary schools. We also run a special pre-school for children with Downs Syndrome, autism, developmental delay and learning disabilities. At the primary and secondary levels, we
provide daily free tutorial and homework house services, presently to about 200 schoolchildren in the community.
We are also involved in operating;
1. Two Dialysis Centres in Alor Star, Kedah and Kepong, KL respectively with 28 machines and 110 patients manned by nurses from the National Kidney Foundation;
2. Rumah Superkids; a home away from home for abandoned, abused and underprivileged children;
3. SuperHope; a work centre for the physically and mentally challenged adults;
4. SuperFun; a recreation centre for senior citizens;
5. Joy in a Toy, where about 3,000 children in homes/orphanages throughout the country can select a new and branded toy of their choice to be delivered to them on their birthdays;
6. Breadwinner Services; where we provide training and job placements so that there is at least one breadwinner in every household;
7. Welfare Services in helping the poor obtain aid with our monthly food provisions, home improvements,Welfare Department aid, BR1M, etc.
