Coffin and Casket
Life is uncertain, but death is certain. And death is certainly an expensive affair if you are not prepared for it.
There are those who are unfortunate in our society, which deserves a coffin or casket donation funded by our loving community. Some examples of these unfortunate cases are:
a) Abandoned babies who passed away in hospitals.
b) Lonely elderly ones who do not have loved ones end up dying alone in the house.
c) Underprivileged families who cannot afford to bear the rising cost of funeral expenses.
d) Individuals with no next of kin or relatives and/or abandoned by families died due to crime, suicide, homicide or undetermined causes.
Most will end up as unclaimed bodies, which is reported to be in the number of hundred over cases by National Institute of Forensic Medicine, and most will not be having a proper send-off during the funeral.
This means that either the hospital will notify the funeral associations, who would then inform MBCS, or when the family is unable to afford to pay for the funeral, the funeral associations will approach MBCS for funeral donation.
Therefore, Malaysian Buddhist Cooperative Society (MBCS) works in partnership with SuperPanda Team and The Giving Bank to provide a simple and dignified charity funeral services to these cases referred to us by hospitals, welfare homes, old folks homes, and individuals or members of the community vetted by our steering committee.
We are here to offer all donors an opportunity to perform a meritorious deed by performing a memorial donation with your own heart or in memory of your departed loved ones. This is a beautiful way to do something good for the community supporting the final rituals of those who are less fortunate.
To ensure the poor and destitute are given dignified send-offs in Malaysia, there is still a minimal cost to carry out a charity funeral service.
With the support of donors, we hope to bring the cost down with economies of scale in order to support the less fortunate families. Your donation from RM100 or more can add up to make a difference as we work together to provide a simple, meaningful and dignified charity funeral service with a coffin/casket donation contribution to the less fortunate ones!
