BUDIMAS HOME CHARITY FUND (BHCF)
We, at The Budimas Charitable Foundation hope to break the chain of poverty for these children in which their parents are now facing. In doing so, we may see less social problems in our society.
The Budimas Charitable Foundation started off with giving financial aid to 5 homes with 272 children, in the year 2002. The amount paid out then was RM800, 000. Today, The Budimas Charitable Foundation supports over 1,600 children from 32 homes across Malaysia. Currently, the foundation is supporting 31 of these homes with financial assistance. This is to help them cope with the shortages in their funds for basic expenses.
The Budimas Charitable Foundation manages one home, Pusat Jagaan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak Budimas Orion which is now located in Senawang. Construction on this donated land began in 2013. The new home which cost RM3.8 million, welcomed the children in June 2015. This 3 storey home can accommodate 150 children and is equipped with basic necessities. To clothe, feed, educate and provide shelter for these underprivileged and orphaned children, cost the foundation at around RM10 to RM15 per child, per day . They are from ages 3 to 19 years old.
In 2016, the amount paid out for the Budimas Home Charity Fund is RM1.3 million.
