Our Campaign Storyends 21 Nov 2016, 11:59 PM
For the past 40 years, the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA), a voluntary welfare organisation, has been providing much needed services to people with physical disabilities so as to facilitate their integration into mainstream society. Although HWA is a member of the National Council of Social Services (NCSS), it is not funded by the Community Chest and therefore has to raise its own funds to meet the cost of running all its programmes and services that benefit over 2,100 people with physical disabilities who are registered with the Association. It has become increasingly difficult to raise the money to run our programmes and services. We therefore have to rely on the generosity of corporations and members of the public for financial support.
About The Charity
For the past 50 years, the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) has been providing needed services to people with physical disabilities. To fund its services to the needy beneficiaries, HWA has to rely on the generosity of the public and organisations for financial support.
In recent years, HWA has expanded its services to meet the increasing and changing needs of people with disabilities and the rapidly aging population. The number of beneficiaries that HWA served is also growing and this means HWA has to increase its staff strength to meet the needs of the beneficiaries.
With the continuing community support, HWA will be empowered to continue its mission in serving people with disabilities and the elderly.
On behalf of our beneficiaries, thank you so much for your support!
