Our Campaign Story

ends 17 Nov 2018, 11:59 PM

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

All donations will be eligible for tax exemption and it will be included automatically in your tax assessment. Receipts will be mailed out for donations of $50 & above. For donations below $50, you may contact us at [email protected] if you require a copy. As Metta sees the importance in saving the environment, we are gradually going paperless for our receipts to all donors with effect from 1 April 2021 onwards. We thank you for your understanding to walk this journey together to protect the environment that we live in.
