A WeCare Community Action Network Centre in the works in Marine Parade: ESM Goh
Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong is in the midst of setting up a WeCare Community Action Network in his Marine Parade ward.
Writing in his Facebook post, Mr Goh said the centre will provide free 'concierge' service to needy residents and will be client-centric rather than provider-centric.
He noted that the Marine Parade ward has a number of physically disabled old and a high number of residents aged 65 and above.
As such Mr Goh thinks there is a need for a Senior Activity Centre and a rehabilitation centre.
Marine Parade ward currently has a GoodLife Wellness Centre for seniors, a Family Service Centre and the Foo Hai Lodge which is a day care centre for the elderly.
He also noted a need to care for special needs children and the poor in the community.
