Malaysia Independent Living Association for Disabled (MILAD)
MILAD is a non-profit organization founded by a group of disabled persons to assist people with disabilities in achieving Independent Living, regardless of their background, race, or religion.
Initiated by a group of people with disabilities and with the help of Pastor Sia Siew Chin, MILAD was established on 2/11/2017 and registered with the Registry of Societies bearing Registration No. (PPM-005-10-02112017), with its center located in Petaling Jaya SS3.
With proper training and the required assistance provided, we believe people with disabilities are able to attain independent living.
Independent living is having opportunities to make decisions that affect one's life, being able to pursue activities of one's choice, able to exert control and responsibility for one’s own life; whether at home, at work, or as a member of the community - limited only in the same ways that the non-disabled are limited.
Establish a society that embraces the concept of Independent Living which promotes disabled people full inclusion and participation in the community, wherein the disabled people are given the same life opportunities and the same choices in everyday life that the non-disabled people take for granted.
To train, equip and empower the people with disabilities to live independently, and at the same time advocate for equal rights and opportunities for them. We strive toward creating awareness so that the general public will have the right perspective toward disability and people with disabilities, and hence able to help transform the society to allow full inclusion and participation at every possible level by the disabled people.
