About Campaign

Metta's Disability Care consists of the Metta Home for the Disabled and Metta Home Day Activity Centre, which were set up in December 2000 to offer community care options to adults with intellectually disabilities who are aged between 18 and 55.

Besides that, the Metta Day Activity Centre for the Intellectual Disabled, established in 1995 is one of Metta's earliest centres inaugurated, which runs as a self-sufficient centre with its own kitchen, training and recreational wing at the void deck premises of Hougang.

One of our residents, Mdm Ong Siew Choo, aged 58 was diagnosed with moderate intellectual disability. Her mother's inability to supervise her due to having to juggle two jobs to support the family, coupled with Mdm Ong's tendency to wander out of her home made her safety a concern.

As such, her family decided to place her in Metta Home hoping that Siew Choo could pick up some living skills and improve her socialization. During her 17 years stay with us at Metta Home, she has been very participative in all forms of activities.

Please support us to allow us to consistently provide better care and services to our beneficiaries, like Mdm Ong Siew Choo.
