To be a voice for the unheard, unknown and unrecognized, being a part of the community that is often marginalized and capitalized for many personal gains, spurned the need for a platform that is equal and just, without any prejudice and presumptions.
We not only represent this side of the fence that is often mistaken but also the opposite side that has been indoctrinated and saturated with ideologies that deny basic rights of any medium. PKKUM was born.
A brief highlight on what PPKUM stands for:
1. Provide assistance to the marginalized and underrepresented community
2. Organizing health programs and activities with the aim of creating a health conscious community.
3. A safe haven for the needy that is non discriminating and non-judgmental.
4. An avenue to propagate best practices and spread awareness on the need of self-care and preventive approaches.
5. A mediator between the governing body and the community to bridge the gap and advocate better liaisons within the target group.
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ORGANIZATIONS?
We are purely community based organization led by community and inclusive to all those who fit the bill.
We run purely based on community needs. We also assist key affected populations who live without their identity to attain their NRIC (National Registration ID) and engage them to healthcare centers for health screening and treatment.
We have been also assisting those who are homeless to seek their identity with the National Registration Department and engage them with any available local shelter to live off the streets. When needed, we try to assist them in seeking employment to get them back on their feet.
We assist key affected population in seeking employment opportunities with companies that are accepting and non-discriminative.
As we are growing each day, but there are a few things that may help us in overcoming our daily struggles. Financial support has been the main obstacle. Among the necessities that would help us are:
Funding to hire a network coordinator who will be paid a monthly salary to help coordinate and manage the drop-in center.
Funding for groceries to provide food, drinks, and bathing essentials for the key population who drop by our drop-in center.
Funding for in-house medication supplies (paracetamol, Dettol, first aid supplies, etc…)
Funding for transportation allocation to help fetch and send key population from their living area to the hospital to seek treatment and for related medical concerns.
Funding to run in-house and outdoor sessions and activities to empower the community and reduce vulnerability.
Funding to assist community members who have passed away due to HIV and AIDS – to manage the funeral and transportation for the relevant cause.
