"With the temporary closure of IDAC, our training process has been interrupted. It makes me worried as one caregiver shared that one of our beneficiary has reverted to rolling and laying on the floor. She also refuses to sit on the chair which she was previously trained to do so." Ms Sujata, Training Officer at Metta Day Activity Centre for the Intellectually Disabled (IDAC)
Over the past two months of circuit breaker, many of our centres were closed and could only provide remote assistance and support to our vulnerable beneficiaries. Our centres are slowly opening up again as we enter phases of safe reopening.
Due to COVID 19, the majority of the events were cancelled resulting a decline in donations. Funds are urgently needed to maintain operations that deliver crucial services to vulnerable groups in our community.
Recently, our Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Heng Swee Keat has announced the Care and Support package where most Singaporeans will be receiving between $300-$600 in June. DPM Heng also encouraged Singaporeans to donate to the less fortunate if they can afford to.
We would like to appeal for your care and support to help Metta Welfare Association's 1,200 beneficiaries and their families by donating today! You can also help us by sharing this campaign with your family and friends. Every dollar counts and we are grateful for each donation received.
