Di Zang Lin is working directly with WeCare@MarineParade under the advice of the Ministry of Social and Family Development and People’s Association.

Besides WeCare, Di Zang Lin is working with our vendors WeeKee Catering, Best One Foods, WeiPoh Fruits and NTUC Supermarket for supplies.
Marine Terrace has an estimated 60 needy families, of which most are destitute, and has a wheel-chair bound family member. Some of these individuals have ailing family members residing with them. Some families have family members fighting terminal illnesses, while others have an autistic child or persons with psychotic conditions. Majority of our beneficiaries are seniors staying alone. Di Zang Lin would serve about 90 packed meals to all these needy residents each week.
