Charity has a wide range of definition. Different people have different opinion on the definition of charity as charity is build from inside of a person heart.
The general definition of charity are:
1. Generous actions or donations to aid the poor, ill, or helpless.
2. Something given to a person or persons in need
But as i mentioned earlier, different people have their own perception towards charity. For my own experience of charity, charity is:
Any type of donation or contribution that we are giving either man power, time, ideas, money and many more towards:
1. charity organization
2. the person in needs
We can find a lot of charity organization around us, either religious foundations or force-major foundations. These type of foundations usually being set up by a group of kind hearted people on their own free will to help those misfortune and also people who are in needs.
Usually at the beginning they will be operating using their own money and assets to establish their foundation. But after that government will also giving some budget for the chosen foundations so that it could operate smoothly and more in needs peoples can be saved, unless the foundation is established by a very rich people such as Bill Gates Foundation.
In Malaysia, we also have a lot of foundations created to help all in needs people with the same purpose which is charity. I myself had joined a foundation which is Yayasan Kasih Sayang Negeri Sembilan. In my experience, foundations need more voluntaries and man power to help them stay connected and informed on the society issues.
We can became a voluntary in any charity foundation that we are interested in to give contribution. Money is not the only things we can contribute, but our free time, power and kindness will become the main attraction.
In Yayasan Kasih Sayang Negeri Sembilan, we are focusing more on religious (islamic) charity. We provide shelter and the warm feeling as a family to whoever come for help in our foundation. We also help our clients to meet with all available government funds to help them in their daily life. The main focus are for the deeply in needs family such as low income family, poor students that want to further their study, shelter, counseling, providing knowledge on islam, class for everything regarding islam and also shelter for non-married single mother.
We are trying our best to help all people who are in our range and ability. As for that we are welcoming any donations and also voluntary for our foundation so that we can help more and more misfortune person and also improve our services. For any incury, please do contact:
