Intended use of funds through the YFC 2022 programme

Funds raised through YFC 2022 will go towards supporting Metta’s five social services to ensure we continue serving over 1,400 beneficiaries and extend help to the less fortunate in Singapore who may have fallen through the cracks.

 

Engaging and involving the YFC participants

We will arrange to conduct virtual sessions with the students and our staff based at various centers supporting Metta’s social services.
If the situation allows, we can arrange for students to tour Metta’s premises and interact with our beneficiaries.
