Beavers are known for building dams, canals and homes.
Our group of 2 legal beavers, a fashion beaver, a medical beaver and a retired beaver will build our resilience and muscles by completing 1.35 million steps in 52 days.
Support us with your donations as we commit to this challenge!
The COVID-19 pandemic season has impacted MWS in many ways. We have seen a higher caseload of families seeking help. Daily sanitising of our facilities and the need for medical supplies to keep beneficiaries and staff safe have intensified. We have also stepped up to care for rough sleepers who are rehoused in Buangkok.
All these have increased our costs while donations have not risen in tandem. In the meantime, we continue to care for close to 12,000 existing beneficiaries through our 20 critical centres and programmes. MWS is committed to maintaining our high level of service and care to everyone we serve as well as the new clients who come through our doors. Please donate generously to keep us going!
