At the same time, many people in Malaysia are struggling financially; cases of eviction and termination have been on a sharp rise.We are transforming a capsule hostel into a general shelter; located on Jalan Chow Kit, Kuala Kumpur, for those who are facing financial difficulties, been evicted or lost work. The shelter will be a temporary place for the beneficiaries to stay while they get their lives back on track.
