Mission Impact

Much of the good we do with volunteering comes not from the physical thing which we build but from the spirit of the volunteers. On Saturday we saw the residents and the volunteers working their asses off for a common goal and it was beautiful to behold. Unfortunately, we won't be able to I finish if we can't raise the money.


PLC is a welfare home providing shelter, care and support for men living with HIV/AIDS. PLC is unique in our inclusive approach, where for the past 20 years our policy has been to never turn away a person in need, even if they can’t pay. Our three shelters, currently housing around 60 men, is located in Batu Arang, Selangor. We provide:

  1. Nursing care for men with AIDS who are in need of daily care for basic needs

  2. Rehabilitation support and farm work for men recovering from drug addiction

  3. Respite home for those whose permanent physical or cognitive disabilities make them unable to care for themselves.


Right now PLC is facing a lot of challenges, one being lack of space for human development programmes. To address this issue, PLC has teamed up with Engineers without Borders and VIP fellowship program (http://vip.org.my/) to build a multi-purpose hall housing a learning center for the residents.
