RUMAH KELUARGA KAMI (OUR FAMILY HOME) - Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Some of the children from the Rumah Keluarga Kami

Rumah Keluarga Kami (RKK) was set up in 1990 with the aim to provide for, and children irrespective of race, creed or religion and is a project of the society of St.Vincent D'Paul, Malaysia.

In the 17 years since it was formed, more than 190 children have come to live in this home. Currently the house has 40 children cared for by 4 full time staff and about 16 . The children who come from very difficult backgrounds are given all the basic amenities and necessities and all school going children are placed in government schools and provided with additional tuition.

As this is a charity home, the operations are funded strictly from well-wishers and public donations. The home requires about RM16,000.00 a month to meet its operating overheads. The home is proud to announce that some of the children have excelled in their studies in the various examinations. One of the girls have graduated with a degree in Business Information System and another completed with Diploma in Hospitality, Tourism and Leisure Management. (Both are from Sunway University.) There are seven teenagers continuing their skill training in Montfort Boys Town, Selangor.

As part of its commitment, RKK intends to purchase the adjoining plot of land to build a house for the boys wing which is currently in a rented premises. In order to achieve this objective, RKK is organising its 9th Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Saturday, 8th September 2007 at Kelab Golf Perhidmatan Awam Malaysia (KGPA) Bukit Kiara, Off Jalan Damansara, Kuala Lumpur. To those Golf enthusiasts, why not have a round of friendly game and do charity at the same time? For non-golfers, you can contribute by joining the dinner and prize presentation ceremony, (and be a sponsor for the prizes too!.)

For those who wish to donate to the home directly, kindly make your payment in favour of : "Yayasan Ozanam" and all donations will be tax exempt.

Your generosity and support will go a long way in helping and shaping the children's future.
