The butterfly is an epitome of Endurance, Evolution, Hope, and LIFE!

Brightly coloured butterflies are aplenty yet dull-coloured butterflies often goes unnoticed; much like Metta Welfare Association's beneficiaries.

The butterfly is a significant metaphor of our beneficiaries and their daily struggles through the metamorphosis of life stages. With diligence, patience and endurance, Metta Alumni youths with special needs individually hand-crafted these ceramic butterflies through a long and tedious process of kneading, rolling and cutting. The butterflies are then left to dry for hours before they are fired in the kiln.

Through the creation of the clay butterflies, this initiative is a representation of the efforts to educate, rehabilitate and improve the lives of our beneficiaries.

Look past their disabilities and see the beauty in them. For every $10 donation, you adopt an e-Butterfly and show your support for our beneficiaries. With every struggle overcome, hope awaits.

Adopt a butterfly today.
Be a Superhero and transform lives.

* Donors will receive an e-Butterfly to their respective email registered with Giving.sg as a gesture of adoption of Metta's butterflies.
