Intellectual disabilities or mentally challenged is characterized by significant impairment of cognitive and intelligence functions of daily life and deficit in skills such as reading time, managing finance, reading, calculations and etc. Generally, the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) of a healthy person is about 100. Yet, the IQ of mentally challenged group is usually below 70 as caused by congenital disorder or acquired disorder developed through various psychology and growth conditions.

It is not easy to attain an environment completed with professional full-time personal care assistance, sound medical system and safe-to-live environment for the mentally challenged group as they need personalized treatment in accordance with their disability level respectively. As an embracement of love and responsibility towards mentally challenged children, Malaysia Association for the Welfare of Mentally Challenged Children has established since 27 March 2012 (registered on 4 January 2011) in Petaling Jaya, Selangor. The association provides an all-day comprehensive humane assistance for children with mental disabilities and endeavors in building a safe and open living space to offer the children the superior conditions for healthy psychological growth.

The quote, “IQ70+”, does not mean to label individuals who suffer from mental disabilities. The “+” sign reflected our mission in leading the children to move forward, by seeking more breakthroughs and hopes within their intelligence. It is a bridge built not only to break the gap between social welfare and the public, but to guide these mentally challenged children to walk out from their self-enclosed world.
