What Founding Members Have Always Considered
What started as “little acts of kindness” carried out by members of Fairfield Methodist Church to address the real needs of the Chinatown community in the 90s, grew into a concerted effort to help provide professional and effective care services to those in need in Chinatown and beyond.
Founding members of the church have always considered a calling from God to serve the community in Chinatown. With the local community’s interest at heart, Yong-en Care Centre was registered as a charity in 1996 – independent of the church, governed by its own constitution and with its own members.
Independent of the church and governed by its own constitution, Yong-En is a friendly and welcoming space for both church members and interested members of the public to come together to do good for the community.
While remaining affiliated to the church, Yong-en continues helping the Chinatown community enjoy a greater sense of bonding and has become their pillar of support in times of need.
