Child Passenger Safety Campaign (BMW Safety 360°), 2019

Children car seat is recently made mandatory in Malaysia for all families with children age 7 & below. However, purchasing a car seat can be an extra burden to many B40 families in Malaysia. With children’s safety in mind, YDKGlobal in collaboration with BMW, Safe ‘N Sound and Shopee Malaysia started a subsidy campaign, allowing families with financial constraints to purchase a car seat at a discounted rate. Now families in need can own a car seat affordably without compromising their children’s safety.

NGO Status Report On Child Rights 2018

Yayasan Deloitte Kassimchan (YDKGlobal) is a member of the Child Rights Coalition Malaysia (CRCM) which restarted its work on the 3rd NGO Status Report on Child Rights for 2018. The 1st and 2nd NGO Status Report was in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

The core NGO members of CRCM worked on a voluntary basis over the last year and are keen to have it launched and published before the end of the year in conjunction with the Anniversary of the CRC and in anticipation of the Government’s CRC Report being released soon, keeping in mind Malaysia’s last and only Report was in 2006. As a party to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child 1989 (CRC), Malaysia is obligated to prepare regular reports for the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.

This 2018 NGO Status Report will provide a starting point for CRCM to engage with more NGOS in order to work towards a more comprehensive and inclusive Status Report for 2019. CRCM is keen to mainstream the indivisibility of human rights while respecting children as human rights defenders.

We hope that the handover of the NGO Report on 20th December 2019 to the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development will  provide some pressure on the Government to fulfil their commitment to uphold the rights of all children in Malaysia.
