Doing more with your gift

We have been incredibly blessed by our faithful and generous supporters, many of whom are from Methodist churches. Without them, we would not be able to serve our 11,000 beneficiaries.

Half of our services fill gaps in the community but do not receive government funding. These include five MWS Senior Activity Centres and the MWS Family Development Programme.

Upcoming enhancements to MWS’ centres and programmes
We are constantly working on improving our centres and programmes to serve our beneficiaries better.

Our upcoming plans include:

  1. Transforming the nursing home experience
    Since 2018, MWS Bethany Nursing Home – Choa Chu Kang has embarked on a Care Re-modelling programme that is expected to be completed in 2020. The project aims to provide a family- and home-like environment for residents, enhancing their autonomy and helping them live with greater dignity.
  2. Starting a new avenue of help for families in Buangkok
    Our Family Service Centre network is expanding with the opening of a new branch in Buangkok in April 2019. New staff and facilities will be required for the centre to function effectively and serve the families in this growing community.

A deficit of $3m is estimated for past two financial years. With the plans in the pipeline, the steadfast support of all Methodists is more important than ever. We look forward to your support and partnership in impacting lives!

It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when sown on the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth, yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden plants and puts out large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.” (Mark 4:30–32)

Double the impact of your gift and enable us to make a greater difference to the community.
This financial year (ending March 2020), the Government will match your donation dollar-to-dollar (up to $400,000 per charity) through the Bicentennial Community Fund announced during Budget 2019.
