Financial Assistance Scheme
1. PMC Blessing Fund
The fund aims to provide short term interim financial assistance to individuals or families who are applying for government funding and is pending for approval or are being referred by any social agencies, grassroot communities or church members. During the period, befrienders are being assigned to provide social and spiritual support to the beneficiaries.

The Befriender plays a crucial role in understanding and providing care to the beneficiaries. The personal touch and support given provides much hope and affirmation to individuals and families. To better address the needs of the beneficiaries, training and resources are provided to the befriender. Case discussion can be arranged with the pastoral staff for complex situations.
