I am Rita, one of the finalists of Mrs Singapore Chinatown Pageant 2018. This year, Metta Welfare Association is working with us and we will help them to raise funds in order to improve living conditions of the residents in the centres and provide necessary financial support for them.
Metta Welfare Association (Metta) was founded in 1992 by Venerable Shi Fa Zhao, Abbot of the Golden Pagoda Buddhist Temple. It was Registered as a society in 1994 and it provides care, home, education for physically challenged adults, senior citizens and special children. They are also running the preschool in Punggol to cater for small children with Autism. Metta is presently endorsed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), Ministry of Health (MOH) and Ministry of Education (MOE). We visited their adult disabled care home at Woodland on Oct 13th. The centre has 89 residents so far. Even though the centre has provided good care for the residents but there is much more needed to be done.
Therefore, I want to ask for your support to donate to the association to build better homes and schools for these residents. Any amount is appreciated. Thanks
