Our Campaign Storyends 09 Jul 2016, 12 AM
To raise 2000 volunteers for our Flag Day on 9 July 2016
Donations collected are to support our day-to-day operations, and to provide fee subsidies or waivers, and other forms of assistance to our beneficiaries (clients) from disadvantaged families.
The Christian Outreach to the Handicapped (COH) reaches out to intellectually handicapped individuals aged between 16 and 55. Many of the people we serve have either been born with, or acquired disabilities including:
Autism Spectrum Disorder,
Physical disabilities, and
We support our clients by providing day activity centres where they can experience varied and engaging programmes, tapping on their talents, abilities and interests.
The programmes encourage our clients to not only develop the necessary skills to achieve independence in their day-to-day activities, but also to boost their self-esteem and confidence levels.
Our goal is to help limit the divide between people that are able and those that are disabled, leading to a much needed acceptance that these individuals seek in their lives. Our organisation goes beyond simply helping these extraordinary people. We also provide their families with support, guidance and peace of mind. Our centre supplies families with time through the day that can be used for work, errands, or simply getting some rest so that they can offer the best possible support for their loved ones.
As an organisation that relies on the support of donations for day-to-day operations, your contribution is greatly appreciated.
