Scheme and Entitlement
The welfare management system is a robust, automated system which uses MyKad or MyKasih smart card as the payment instrument for purchasing goods and services. MyKasih Foundation uses the system to distribute essential food items to underprivileged households throughout Malaysia including Sabah and Sarawak.
The welfare management system has spread its wings to excessive more platforms such as bursary programme for underprivileged students to purchase food and school items and transportation programme where students from low income families are eligible to get free rides on public buses by tapping smart cards at terminals installed in the buses. In addition to that, the welfare management system has expanded its scope to support a medical programme where patients can use their MyKads for medical entitlements at clinics.
