Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

Hi there! We are @blindandshine on Instagram - you might have heard of us but if you have not, do check us out!

During this trying period of COVID-19, we have heard how people with disabilities (PwDs) have been adversely affected. The job roles that many of them used to work in (e.g. hotel, F&B) are negatively impacted due to the pandemic.

SPD is organising a free virtual run from Nov-Dec 2021 to raise awareness and in support of the PwDs community in Singapore. Do register for the virtual run, and if you would like to contribute a little more to SPD's work in support of the PwDs, appreciate if you could donate via this link and share it with someone else too! All donations will be passed to SPD through giving.sg.

A little about us:
Our boy now 19 month old is born blind. We have encountered several challenges due to a lack of resources for PwDs but we have also met many kind people within the community who have rendered support to or guided us. We hope to do a little for the community so thank you for supporting our cause!

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.
