Our Campaign Storyends 11 Oct 2020, 11:59 PM
Spending more time in my community due to working from home has been an eye-opening experience. On a daily basis, looking out of my window, I spot people in a wheelchair - both young and younger.
I got an opportunity to bring my neighbour for a grocery run nearby. She continues to pursue her interests in the arts through reading nowadays. She is currently a wheelchair user but she wasn't like this in her younger days - She was an actress.
In a need to do more and to complement SPD's current efforts, I've pledged to support through driving a fundraiser - in light that the COVID 19 pandemic has halted physical flag day activities. I earnestly seek your support, as you can just perform a handful of clicks to significantly make up for the lost opportunities to raise much needed funds.
As for myself... If you've read up til here, I have availed my resource to volunteer with my annual leaves - with any bit that I can. Thanks for your patience and now, for your act of a few clicks to help our fellow countrymen(:
About The Charity
SPD is a local charity set up in 1964 to help people with disabilities maximise their potential and be a part of mainstream society.
We are here to help children and youths with special needs reach for the stars and be the best that they can be through early intervention and educational support.
We strive to boost the self-reliance and mobility of persons with disabilities within the community, and we do so through therapy services, assistive technology and the support and encouragement of our care team.
Our day care programmes provide respite to families, making it possible for persons with disabilities to stay with their loved ones at home for as long as possible without having to resort to institutional care.
A strong advocate for inclusive employment, we train people with disabilities and work with them to seek suitable employment opportunities so that they can be financially independent and lead a full and engaged life.
After more than 50 years, we remain focused and committed to enabling people with disabilities.
