In June this year, one of the founders of MWS, Mr Peter Joe Chia, passed on. We had the privilege of caring for him at MWS Bethany Nursing Home – Choa Chu Kang in his last days.

Moved to act on seeing the growing needs of the sick and elderly in Singapore, the late Mr Chia and several other like-minded men seeded the idea of creating a charitable Methodist organisation to serve the community. Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) was established in 1981 and later welcomed 6 elderly sick at our first centre. MWS would go on to serve hundreds of thousands of distressed families, the destitute, chronically sick and frail, socially isolated seniors, disadvantaged children and at-risk youths, regardless of their race and religion for the next 40 years.

Mr Peter Joe Chia

Pioneers, like the late Mr Peter Joe Chia, donors and volunteers who responded to the cause and supported the work of MWS have made and continue to leave a lasting impact on our beneficiaries’ lives.

One such beneficiary who experienced a deep positive impact on her life is Madam Ong MZ, 42, a single mother of three young daughters. At the start of her journey with MWS Family Development Programme in 2016, Madam Ong was living in a 1-room rental flat, struggling to find employment because of her low educational qualifications, and coping with medical problems as well as caregiving duties. Under the programme’s debt and savings matching schemes, Madam Ong’s situation not only stabilised but she began to thrive, obtained a full-time job and have greater confidence about the future. In 2018, she applied to purchase a 3-room HDB flat. She is now self-reliant and no longer requires assistance.

“I never imagined that I would be able to buy my own home, but now I am a flat-owner. I am really proud of myself and grateful to MWS,”
shares Madam Ong.

 Your continual support empowers MWS to reach out to individuals, like Madam Ong, who faced many complex issues and saw their lives changed when they received the help they needed. This Christmas, give generously to make a lasting impact. Thank you! 

 

How Your Donation Makes a Lasting Impact

Another beneficiary whom we were able to make a lasting impact on is Mdm Chua Ah Moi. She lost her beloved husband to heart disease in March 2020, Mdm Chua struggled with depressive thoughts and loneliness. The COVID-19 restrictions intensified her sense of isolation. One day, she chanced upon an MWS volunteer who is a befriender to her neighbour. Curious, Mdm Chua asked if she could visit MWS Senior Activity Centre – GreenTops@Sims Place. Today, Mdm Chua is a familiar face at every game, craft, and exercise session at the Centre.

“It’s always lively and fun here at MWS Senior Activity Centre – GreenTops@Sims Place.I come here 6 days a week and participate in all the activities! The people here are my second family. Even when I sleep, I dream about coming here,”
says Mdm Chua

At MWS, our focus is to alleviate all forms of poverty from financial, physical to social and emotional.

One example is Mr Hamid who was admitted to MWS Nursing Home – Yew Tee in April 2020. His severe medical issues led to weakness in the lower limbs which in turn caused problems with coordination and balance. Mr Hamid needed heavy assistance in performing daily living activities. To address his mobility issues, the MWS Allied Health team designed a rehabilitative programme for the highly motivated Mr Hamid. He is now able to move about independently, take public transport on his own, and has successfully reintegrated back into the community. His quality of life and dignity greatly improved.

Whether it is in empowering people in need to regain their mobility and dignity, reintegrate into the community, discover new social ties or be financially independent, every dollar goes towards leaving a lasting impact in the lives of the beneficiaries whom we serve.
