Our Campaign Storyends 31 Mar 2023, 11:59 PM
Hi, I'm Rose. My younger daughter, Hannah, has been with Rainbow Centre since early childhood. Hannah's diagnosis came very late at 18 months. During her earlier milestone checks, doctors would tell us the phrase "failure to thrive" because she struggled to achieve the minimum development in height and weight. She was further diagnosed with hypertension, a horseshoe kidney, delay in physical and intellectual development, and was unable to walk or talk.
Hannah was blessed to start early intervention and continue her education in RC. The teachers were patient and designed an individualised learning programme for her, even offering tips to help her at home. The intervention was crucial for her as they use special pedagogies to help the child attain skills.
Now 16 yrs old, Hannah not only communicates well, but RC has given opportunities to develop her love for K-pop, singing and speaking Korean. As a working mum, it is a challenge to discover her interests and groom her strengths. At RC, she is a student leader, performer, sportsman and learned basic computing skills.
RC has been a haven for my girl. She has so much joy and learned so much from her teachers. I have 2 girls and so I know, only with intervention and outreach can children like Hannah come closer to having a voice. With RC's support for parents, I see hope because they care to make a difference in our lives.
Please support our campaign so RC can help children with disabilities develop their potential and thrive.
Rainbow Centre recently celebrated its 35th anniversary of building empowered, included and thriving lives for persons with disabilities. What's next for us beyond this milestone?
RC35 and Beyond is a fundraising campaign which charts Rainbow Centre's future focus in building inclusive communities and expanding pathways for young adults with disabilities. The campaign gathers members of our community to support our mission through digital fundraising for three key areas of need: supporting low resource families, pilot programmes such as those in the Post-18 space for young adults with disabilities and student care services, as well as innovation efforts to improve service quality.
Donations made from now to 31 March 2023 under the RC35 and Beyond campaign can attract dollar-for-dollar matching from the Tote Board under its Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme. Double your impact and donate today!
