We are an NGO of action
The Karisma Humanitarian Outreach Mission (KHOM) was established as an initiative flowing from the efforts of the alumni of Pusat Tuisyen Akademik Karisma (PTA Karisma), a private education centre located in Kota Bharu, Kelantan.
Where we work
Within 5 years, we have worked in 4 countries covering areas of near conflict zones to send much needed humanitarian assistance to victims of war, hunger, and disaster. We choose to work in to hard-to-reach areas trying to ensure humanitarian aid gets to those who have not received assistance. We choose locations where we know we can deliver the greatest impact with the most effective resources.

These are the dedicated people who make our missions possible.
