It’s truly saddening when the elderly are left by their families in old folks homes, though it is understandable that some of these families may not have the funds or capabilities to care for their elderly family members the way that they need it.
Thankfully, old folks homes have been doing their best to look after the elderly folks who have been entrusted under their care. However, they too, need all the help they can get.
The Xiao Xin Serdang Old Folks Home
This welfare centre located in Taman Seri Serdang presently houses 13 elderly folks from different backgrounds. They offer care to the elderly while providing them with a safe environment to call ‘home’.
And they’ve been doing this out of kindness, as they do not charge fees to take in elderly folks in need.
“As Xiao Xin Serdang Old Folks Home has been established for 1 year and 11 months, very few people are aware of the existence of this centre. Our centre is free of charge, to accommodate the elderly,” they shared with WORLD OF BUZZ.
Hence, in giving kindness, they hope to receive the same from the general public.
“The centre relies on donations from the community to cover its expenses. We hope that a fundraising campaign will help more people to find out about the centre and receive more support so that we can build up the Xiao Xin Serdang Old Folks Home and give this group of homeless elderly folks a home to live in,” they said, adding that they are open to welcoming more elderly folks in need.
But, they don’t just need donations.
The Xiao Xin Serdang Old Folks Home also hopes that more people of the general public will visit and spend some time with the elderly aunties and uncles that call the centre home so that their hearts can feel full knowing that there are people out there who care.
A quick visit is all it takes to bring them a sense of joy, family and togetherness.
How to donate
They shared a breakdown of their monthly expenses to help the general public further understand their circumstances.
Meal expenses: RM7,200
Medical expenses: RM2,000
Staff salaries: RM1,800
Other expenses: RM500
“Anyone who would like to contribute to us for food, daily necessities, and others are warmly welcomed,” they shared.

Once you have made a donation, please do send over a receipt to their social worker, Mr MK, so that they can record every transaction and issue an official receipt. You can contact Mr MK at +6011-21244463.
When and where to visit
Visiting hours are between 9am to 5pm.
Location: No 1687, Jalan 18/46, Taman Sri Serdang, 43000 Seri Kembangan, Selangor.
It’s truly amazing to see how the team behind the Xiao Xin Serdang Old Folks Home have dedicated their lives to helping others in need and are willing to put in the work to care for the elderly.
This passionate team of Malaysians are doing their best to help as many elderly folks as they can, but they’re struggling due to the lack of funds and need your help!
So, let’s try and support them however we can. Together, we can help their cause by either donating or visiting their home to put a smile on the faces of the elderly who call their centre ‘home’.
