Every Lunar New Year is a mad rush for the freshest ingredients and groceries to prepare a good sumptuous meal to feed our families during the festive season. But for some families, this would be a financial chore as it means higher expenses for the New Year on limited finances.
Over 600 students and clients from Metta School and Metta Welfare Association collectively counts towards the Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) numbers where subsidies and groceries are provided to the clients and their families every month.
More than half of them live in 3-room flats or smaller units with at least 3 to 4 dependents on a single household income. You can help Metta Welfare Association purchase household groceries for these low-income families so that they and their young ones can enjoy a good meal for the Lunar New Year because every family deserves a good New Year.
