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:

Disability Care
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)

Medical Care
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)

Children Care
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

Special Education
Metta School (a special education school for children aged seven to 18 with mild intellectual disability and/or autism spectrum disorders)

Social Enterprise
Happy Arts Enterprise Ltd (a social enterprise that creates vocational training and employment opportunities for adolescents aged 18 and above from special education schools)

I'll be there as a volunteer to man one of the scrapbook stalls and we will be selling the American Crafts Scrapbook Kits at real good price. Pls come to support! Even if you are not into scrapbooking, there are many other stalls which display beautiful art works / craft works by the students of Metta and these are meant for sale. Not only that, there's many food stalls as well! There will sure be something that you and your family will be interested!

  1. Hello Chok,

    I'm Inge from Belgium : you commented on a blogpost about my spinnercards a big week ago.

    Thanks for your comment and yes, you can "copy" my cards :) As long as you have fun creating !!

    You asked me about the flowerfairies. I would like to send you some of the ones in my drawers. I have them for long and I made a lot of cards with them now, so time to change the image again...
