A Glimpse of History
The Cozy Home was first conceived as a retirement home for “holy servants” by the late Rev Canon Chan Kai Ming in 1977, and All Saints’ Church Kuala Lumpur adopted and pursued the project. The Cozy Home Building Committee, headed by Mr. Peter Yuen, was formed in early 1980s and the ‘Cozy Home Building Fund’ was subsequently set up. A long-drawn fundraising drive and project planning then ensued. The scope of the Home was later enlarged to accommodate the elderly (senior citizens).
