WFA - WESLEY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
The Ministry recognises that there is a segment of people in our society who have been marginalised through various reasons and are therefore living in conditions of hardship. It is to this group of people that the ministry seeks to reach out to, to share God’s love. This in practical terms mean that the ministry must go to where the people are; to meet their needs is first to understand their way of life, the environment from which they come from and the culture of hardship. This understanding is essential for building bridges of trust and friendship, something required before the church can begin to share God’s love to our friends. The ministry endeavours to win the trust and friendship of the community through Christian social care and concern.
It is to provide financial aid to individuals/families for a period of up to 3 months or more, if necessary. This financial assistance scheme is not a replacement of the monthly income that is needed by the individual/family. It is a partial support for them whilst encouraging them to also seek out for other sources of income/support through this time of need. Eventually, as far as possible, it is to assist them towards financial independence.
