“Metta” in Pali means “loving kindness”.
Metta Welfare Association (Metta) was founded in 1992 by Venerable Shi Fa Zhao, Abbot of the Golden Pagoda Buddhist Temple. He is also the President and Abbot of the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum.
Registered as a charity in 1994, Metta is presently endorsed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education. We are also members of the National Council of Social Service, Singapore Hospice Council and Singapore Disability Sports Council.
