Our Campaign Storyends 01 May 2018, 11:59 PM
DSA is a self-funded, non-profit Voluntary Welfare Organisation.
DSA provides support to families and caregivers, help persons with Down syndrome to lead a normal life and thus be able to contribute to society and help them integrate into mainstream society.
I joined the Classic Mrs Singapore 2018 pageant as I wanted to challenge myself; not only did I manage to do what I thought I couldn't and found a brand new me, through this pageant, I got to learn more about DSA. I was also given the opportunity to perform for these lovely kids. Kids with Down syndrome are just like you and me; in fact, they are happier than us, who at times are so blinded by the pursuit of power and wealth that we forget the most important thing in life, that is to be happy. We only have one life, let's make the most of our lives and bring happiness to people around us.
Let us remind ourselves that the secret to happiness is helping others.
