Geng Xin Tang is a coffin donation program that works with bereavement care providers to provide free coffin/urns and funeral services to the poor, underprivileged, or deceased with no family. Established by Great Heart Charity Association in 2013, it was registered as a non-profit organisation in 2016 under the name of Persatuan Kebajikan Kasih Semadi (PPM-006-10-10022016).
This program provides the deceased with a basic coffin and a proper funeral to preserve the dignity of the deceased.
The coffin donation program in Geng Xin Tang covers three main categories:
- Unclaimed bodies from the hospital, left unclaimed for 1-6 months.
- Members of underprivileged families, where families are unable to afford funeral cost.
- The elderly from old folks’ homes who do not have family members.
