MSRI Refugee Support Centre

The Malaysian Social Research Institute (MSRI) runs several programmes - with the core ones being education, health and livelihood - all of which were established in January 2011 with the goal of improving the lives of urban refugees from small minority communities. As of December 2016, we have 1,847 families registered with the organisation, numbering to almost around 6,000 refugees and asylum-seekers. Refugees and asylum seekers come mainly from the Middle Easter, African and Central Asian, comprising of over 14 nationalities such as Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Palestine, Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, and Sudan.

MSRI Refugee Support Centre provides:

  • Basic education for children and unaccompanied minors from the age of 4 to 18, and an adult education and vocational training programme;
  • Family Health care programme that includes primary healthcare, preventive healthcare, family planning and counselling;
  • Emergency support to families with particular vulnerabilities such as cases in need of hospital treatment, families with young children and female headed households or households with no other form of support.
Our mission is to make a difference in the life of displaced people currently living in Malaysia, particularly refugees and asylum seekers, and to advocate their causes.
