Our Campaign Storyends 24 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM
Walking comes naturally to many of us, and is an ability often taken for granted. This is not the case for those who face physical disability challenges. They often need long-term therapy to get back on their feet and regain some independence.
As volunteers on SPD's Technology Advisory Panel, we have heard many stories of stroke and road accident survivors returning to work with the help of our therapists and much perseverance. There are also our elderly beneficiaries who could go home every day to be with their loved ones instead of living in nursing homes because of our day care and rehab programmes.
Every story moves and motivates us to do more. So today, the five of us have embarked on this campaign to raise funds to enable more persons with disabilities, especially those from middle to low-income families, to access to affordable programmes and services.
Please support this “5-for-50” campaign where we target to raise $50,000 for SPD's rehabilitation programmes. The funds raised will go towards providing more than 1,000 therapy sessions for clients from low-income households. Every $200 that you donate through this campaign, we will walk 1km.
We pledge to cover 100km collectively regardless of the amount raised. The distance is daunting for us (who hardly exercise!) but with your support, we are determined to complete it.

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.
