Our Campaign Storyends 20 Dec 2017, 11:59 PM
I am raising S$40,000 for 40 charities by the time I turn 40 in 2017. Simply put, 40k for 40 by 40! I have already donated S$4,000 of my own funds to these charities and I hope you will participate in this effort. This charity is one of the 40 beneficiaries. Thank you for helping to make this difference.
About The Charity
Muhammadiyah Welfare Home is a residential shelter that cares for boys between the ages of 10 to 18 years old who have been admitted under the Care and Protection Orders, Compassionate Grounds or are sent by other agencies such as the Court and the Ministry of Social & Family Development (MSF). It provides a holistic care for each resident through education, programmes, casework intervention and behaviour modification tools.
MWH takes a holistic and multi-agency approach in managing cases of at-risk children and youths who have been referred to the Home. We work closely with various government and other community agencies such as schools, medical professionals, family service centres and community development councils. The safety and well-being of the child and youths is our upmost priority and with careful assessment, individualised plans and targeted interventions are put in place for each admission.
Our case workers support the children and youths in ways such as strengthening their socio-emotional development, developing their level of resilience and improving their education either through formal schooling and/or informal tutoring. We also work towards improving their family relationship to ensure a smooth reintegration upon their eventual discharge from the Home.
MWH is one of the residential Homes that is selected to participate in the Safe and Strong Families (SSF) Pilot initiative by MSF.
