Why you should support this Carnival?
This annual carnival serves a two-prong purpose: 1) It is a day for the beneficiaries, students, volunteers and supporters to come together to celebrate the great service that Metta Welfare has been providing to the people in Singapore, inclusive of all, regardless of race, language or religion. 2) It is to raise awareness of its services it is running and to raise fund for its operations.
Playing a pivotal role in realising its mission are nine welfare centres and a social enterprise that are located islandwide. Currently serving over 900 beneficiaries from various races and religions, these centres are segregated into the following areas:
Metta Day Activity Centre for the Intellectually Disabled (a day care centre for the intellectually disabled)
Metta Home for the Disabled (a residential home for the disabled)
Metta Home Day Activity Centre (a day care centre for the disabled)
Metta Day Rehabilitation Centre for the Elderly (a day rehabilitation centre for elderly and stroke patients)
Metta Hospice Care (home hospice care for the terminally ill)
Metta PreSchool @Simei and Punggol (preschools that offer early intervention programmes to young children aged three to six with special needs)
SE CDC – Metta Student Care Centre
Metta School (a special education school for children aged seven to 18 with mild intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorders)
Happy Arts Enterprise Ltd (a social enterprise that creates vocational training and employment opportunities for adolescents aged 18 and above from special education schools)
