About Campaignends 30 Apr 2016, 11:59 PM
At 20, Jayandi d/o Arrumugam was a clerk who hope to set up a handicrafts business. A bad traffic accident changed everything when she lost her left leg.
Having spent 27 years in a wheelchair, Jayanthi, now 47, works in an office once again. After taking an accounting course, she does accounts for companies at ABLE SEAS (Social Enterprise Accounting Services) Ltd, a social enterprise run by ABLE, a charity serving persons with physical disabilities. A member of Caritas Singapore, it receives funding from Caritas Singapore to run its operations and programmes. ABLE also operates a respite centre for caregivers, allowing them time-out while their loved ones are being cared for.
Your generous donation will help Caritas Singapore continue our support and care to the poor and marginalised in our community through the work of the 24 member organisations under our umbrella.
