SPD (formerly Society for the Physically Disabled)
How Your Donation Makes a Difference
Founded in November 1964, SPD is a voluntary welfare organisation that supports people with physical, sensory (visual and hearing impairments) and developmental disabilities by promoting their interest, welfare and advancement so as to develop their potential to the fullest. We now serve over 5,000 people with disabilities of all ages through programmes and services that focus on these areas:
1. Children & Youth : Focus on education and development
2. Adults: Focus on Independence and employment
3. Elderly: Focus on independence
We develop programmes and services to help people with disabilities become more independent and self-reliant so that they can lead more fulfilling lives.
As we have been awarded with an Institution of Public Character (IPC) status, all cash donations to SPD are eligible for tax-deduction of 2.5 times the donation amount in 2016.
