Those of you who have known me well knows that it gives me no greater pleasure than to support work that helps in making this world a better livable place especially for those who are less fortunate.
I have been a regular volunteer with RDA and witnessing the amazing work by the people who keep it running in order to provide free therapy for the diabled especially challenged kids with autism, muscular atropy, down sydrome etc. with their families cannot simply be expressed in words.
It takes a lot of selfless human effort, time, energy and finances to ensure our therapy providers aka the horses are looked after to carry out what they are trained to do in improving the lives of people with disabilities while ensuring these riders are in good hands too.
Thus instead of material gifts for my birthday on CNY this year, how about making my wish come true by donating to a worthy cause?
About The Charity
INSPIRING HOPE & IMPROVING LIVES OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore is the only local charity which provides Therapeutic Horse-Riding and Equine-Assisted Activities for children and adults with disabilities, 100% free of charge.
Our therapy horses and ponies provide a tool for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of individuals with special needs, in a non-clinical setting, that is fun and effective, helping the beneficiaries to function better in school/at work, at home and general daily activities, and ultimately helping to improve the quality of life for the beneficiaries and their families.
As part of the therapy, we bring our riders out for walks at a nearby forested trail. For many of our riders with physical disabilities, going into a forest is impossible on a wheelchair or with a walking aid. But they can do so with ease on a horse-back.
Over the years, some of our riders have advanced beyond therapy riding to international competition level! Two of our riders, Gemma Foo and Maximillian Tan, who represented Singapore in the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Paralympics Games started their riding sessions
