SDSC recognises that “Disability must NEVER Disqualify” and strives to provide sports programmes for all disability groups, regardless of the severity to play. Due to their severity, some athletes need special adaptations to their equipment in order to perform. Your donations can provide para-athletes with appropriate sports equipment, which is important for sportspersons.

Toh Sze Ning is a Boccia player who was born with Cerebral Palsy, a condition where nerves are not connected properly to other parts of the body. It has affected her ability to sit and lift things. Despite this, Sze Ning plays her sport with an aid of a pointer that is attached to a helmet. The slight tilt of the head propels the ball and sets the game in motion. Her helmet has seen her win a gold medal for notable competitions like the 2014 Boccia World Open in Montreal, Canada, and the 7th ASEAN Para Games in Myanmar. Your help can enable athletes like Sze Ning to be better equipped for their sport.

About the Charity

The SDSC is the national sports body for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs), founded in 1973. It aims to transform the lives of PWDs through sport as a form of rehabilitative therapy, and means to realise their potential. Besides providing platforms for learning sport, SDSC trains talents to represent Singapore at regional and international competitions. Our success stories include Jason Chee, former para table tennis player and ASEAN Para Games gold medalist, and Yip Pin Xiu, Singapore's first Paralympic gold medallist. SDSC depends on the kind and generous contributions of corporate sponsors and members of the public to advance its cause.

SDSC aspires to provide the disabled with opportunities to train, participate and excel in sports for local, regional and international competitions; to enhance the lifestyles of the disabled and integrate them into the community through recreational sports and activities; and to increase public awareness of and promote widespread support for the sporting and recreational needs of the disabled community in Singapore.
