In collaboration with the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN). MyKasih Foundation runs a health awareness programme, called Program Nur Kasih, for MyKasih recipients.
The programme is conducted via health talks and group discussions on pertinent subjects such as the prevention and early detection of diseases, family planning, nutrition and healthy living. Through the programme, participants are also given a basic medical screening to check their blood pressure, body mass index, as well as glucose and cholesterol levels.
The main objective of this programme is to emphasise the importance of staying healthy for a more full and productive life. In simple terms, healthy people are able to work and earn a living.
To-date. 36 Program Nur Kasih has been conducted in MyKasih communities nationwide.
Also catering to youth, LPPKN runs Teenagers Workshop on High Risk Behaviour, which aims to make urban teenagers aware of the dangers of ‘taboo activities’ such as taking drugs, smoking, drinking alcohol and sexual promiscuity, and help them deal with peer pressure to indulge in these.
