The spinning top is one of the oldest toys in the world. Likewise, MWSʼ mission to enrich the quality of life for the disadvantaged and distressed is founded on Godʼs age-old command to love our neighbour.

Like the top that cannot stand nor spin by itself, MWS cannot address the communityʼs many complex needs on our own. Instead, we lean on His divine wisdom and guidance, strong community partnerships and a passionate workforce and volunteer army. And just like a spinning top can traverse a great distance with the brisk pull of a cord coiled around it, the collective force will propel us to do good better, together.

The MWS Brand Story

Since 1981, Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) has been serving the disadvantaged and distressed, regardless of age, race and religion. From a single home for 24 elderly sick, MWS has extended our spectrum of care over the years to meet the specific and diverse needs of vulnerable seniors, families and youth.

We empower people to have life to the full by lifting them out of poverty. On top of financial poverty, we also aim to address poverty in the areas of psychosocial as well as physical and emotional health. We strive to achieve this by providing an integrated and holistic helping process for every person who comes through our doors.
