ElShaddai Centre Berhad (ElShaddai) was set up in 2008 as a Christian-based humanitarian NGO with a vision to reach out to the displaced and marginalized community of various nationalities through compassion services and social work. Our current work involves the refugee, asylum seeker and other immigrant communities in Malaysia. We are working with people from Myanmar, Cambodia, Indonesia and 15 other countries.

Rescue the displaced and marginalized community who are homeless, cheated or in danger of being trafficked and enslaved.
Relieve by providing assistance to the displaced and marginalized community who are suffering, deprived or sick.
Restore the traumatized within the displaced and marginalized community to holistic physical, mental and spiritual health.

With over 20 volunteer medical doctors as our partners, we reach out to communities in 8 different locations in the Klang Valley through our mobile clinic services. We also provide pre-natal care to pregnant mothers. Averagely, we treat 1,600 outpatients in a year through the mobile clinics.
We provide temporary shelter to those who are facing unexpected issues. Besides lodging, we also provide food to needy families.
In February 2019 we launched our first Hospitality Skill Training Program. We are partnering with UCSI in providing skill training opportunity to our students.
In the same year, we also started a bakery and a sewing training centre as part of our livelihood sustainability projects.
We develop social enterprises based on the strengths and assets of the communities themselves. These enterprises aim to ensure sustainable livelihood besides skill training.
