Living fully and dying well projects
Kasih Foundation promotes and organizes activities that help people to live fully, both physically and mentally.

As it believes that people who live fully, eventually die well. The types of activities include:

  • Meditation
  • Cooking and eating healthily
  • Support groups for care givers and patients
  • Spirituality in Health


Training and education (currently undertaken by KHC)
Kasih foundation aims to create public awareness and interest in hospice services, self- transformation and self- healing. The activities include:

  • Hospice volunteer training
  • Workshop in professional skills in volunteerism
  • Public seminar
  • Study visits to other hospice organizations
  • How to live and serve better in Buddhist philosophy

Self sustaining project ( Undertaken by Kasih Place i.e. Kasih Laman Sdn Bhd)
As a non profit charity organization, Kasih Foundation depends on public support. However, public fund-raising is labour intensive and taxing on the public who are already facing financial challenges. Kasih Laman Sdn Bhd was therefore established to manage and operate Kasih Place to fund Kasih Hospice’s free-of-charge services and other free community services of the Foundation. In this way, the Foundation aims to enable KHC and its public-serving activities to enjoy a higher degree of self-funding and self-sustanence.
