About Campaign

Metta Home for the Disabled was set up in December 2000. Serves as a residential home for 86 residents aged between 18 to 55 years old with intellectual and physical disabilities from all racial groups and religions.

Our programmes aim to equip all residents with the skills and means to lead independent and fulfilling lives. Tending to them with holistic care and working closely with their primary caregivers to provide well-rounded support are a multi-disciplinary team comprising of a social worker, training officers, staff nurses, assistant nurses and therapy aides.

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the cancellation of physical fundraising events, a drop in donations and sponsorships which pose challenges to our fundraising efforts. Costs of PPE items are rising exponentially with prices of surgical masks, disposable gloves and other essential infection control consumables being a few times higher than pre-COVID period. However, even though times are hard, we are not giving up on providing our residents with holistic care and equipping them with the skills and means to lead independent and fulfilling lives. To serve and work towards improving the quality of life of our beneficiaries as part of our Hugs of Warmth and Love, donation drive, we are appealing for your generous support towards our cause.

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.
