SHELTER Home for Children

At TOP Beraten, we aim to create a better world around us and connect with people who need a little help especially during these difficult times. Times might get hard, but we believe in telling hopeful stories that reflect the world we are trying to create.

Given our reputation, it’s important that we work responsibly and use our brand to make a positive impact on the world. Our commitment to corporate social responsibility includes contributing to vulnerable communities.

SHELTER is a registered welfare organization created in 1981 to help abused, abandoned, neglected or at-risk children. It began when seven friends found three homeless boys sleeping in the corridors of the old State Cinema in Petaling Jaya.

The group of friends decided to rent a single storey bungalow to help the children. "All that we had was an empty house without any furniture. We sat, ate and slept on the floor,” said Mr James Nayagam, former Executive Director of SHELTER.

SHELTER has one home for children from 4 to 12 years of age who have been abused, neglected, at-risk or abandoned by their families, parents or guardians. The second home is for teenage girls from 13 to 18 years. Abused teenage girls referred by the public will also be housed here.

By giving children who are at-risk of abuse a proper home, healthcare and education, SHELTER serves as a place of healing. We can not continue to prosper as a society if some segments suffer too much and are unable to contribute their skills and talents to improve their communities.

You may volunteer, donate or send books to them by emailing or by calling 03-7955 0663. The SHELTER website is
