Any kongsi is basically an overseas Chinese clan association. Although the main motive is commercial in nature, it is a benevolent organization for individuals with the same surname. In the historical past, this system of kongsi was employed to help assimilate migrants (usually single, young males) into new lands, overcome economic difficulty, combat oppression and provide welfare to family members of such immigrants.
