  4. How do I know that my money won't end up in the wrong hands?

    MyKasih Foundation acts as a trustee to your contribution. In MyKasih programme, your donation is channelled directly to the recipient in a form of an allowance through the MyKad. Using the MyKad, the recipient is then able to purchase food items at appointed supermarkets. The process is very targeted, secure and cashless diminishing abuse and mishandling of funds.

    Recipients of MyKasih Programme are selected through qualitative and quantitative assesments with the support of local NGOs. Deciding factors include; household monthly income of less than RM1,000, number of dependants and school-going children, and single-parent household.
