  • Lives of girls are rebuilt within the humble walls of Residence @ St. George's. The delinquents, either mandated by court or voluntarily admitted, come face to face with their destructive lifestyles and are guided back on track. And when they do, it's a most beautiful moment. Here, one such girl write back to her family.
  • Slick dance moves marked the completion of a six-month performing arts course for 50 children. They feel more confident and want to continue performing, the children say.
  • Causes of poverty can come upon anyone without warning: riding the wave of disease, death, or failed investments. Oftentimes, poverty clamps its jaws down tight on these people, resulting in extended periods of impoverished living; on occasion even extending to the next generation in a vicious cycle of poverty.
  • In celebration of International Women's Day, we take a look behind the scenes of Residence@St. George's, where young female offenders between 16 and 21 years old are given a second chance to rebuild their lives.
  • An active Walk With The Poor (WWTP) volunteer for the past seven years, full-time accountant Yvonne Poh has no qualms about giving up her weekends for the less fortunate and chronically poor. WWTP is a financial aid programme of Methodist Welfare Services that is extended to Singaporean households with a per capita income of less than $450. Many of its beneficiaries struggle with multi-faceted circumstances such as disabilities, chronic ailments, and loss of breadwinners to death or incarcerations.

About Methodist Welfare Services

Since 1981, Methodist Welfare Services (MWS) has, in Christian love, provided compassionate help to the poor and needy. Starting with only one home serving the elderly, we expanded our services to support families in distress and subsequently opened centres to nurture disadvantaged children. With God's grace, we will continue to work with our partners in the community so that all may have life to the full.
