Our Campaign Story

ends 31 May 2022, 11:59 PM

Meet Rayden (not his real name), a 5-year-old student enrolled in Canossaville Preschool.

At birth, Rayden was diagnosed with profound hearing loss in both ears. When he turned one, Rayden was fitted with cochlear implants, a small electronic device that electrically stimulates the cochlear nerve. While this helps to improve his ability to hear, Rayden still requires specialised support to help him fulfil his potential in life.

As a student in Canossaville Preschool, Rayden is part of the inclusive programme and has access to our early intervention teachers, and speech and language therapists onsite. In the two years that he has been with us, Rayden has grown to be a joyful, friendly, and confident boy.

Rayden's parents are very appreciative for the care that his teachers and therapists have given him. Despite the challenges of raising a child with special needs, his parents continue to rely on Jesus for strength and comfort, and seek encouragement in St Paul's words to never stop praying - (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Your kind support will enable us to provide targeted intervention support for children with hearing loss like Rayden.

Thanks to the support of Tote Board's Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme, your donation will be designated towards Canossaville's Making A Difference (M.A.D) Fund and will be matched with an additional 40%.

Thank you!

About Campaign

Thanks to the support from Tote Board, every dollar donated to this campaign will be matched with an additional 40% and will go towards supporting Canossaville's Making A Difference (M.A.D) Fund.

Canossaville Children and Community Services (Canossaville) serves children across preschool and primary school ages. We support both neurotypical children and those with hearing loss and multiple disabilities. Regardless of their family circumstances or their conditions, we strive to build an inclusive environment for these children, and ensure that our programmes are accessible to all.

For infants and young children with hearing loss, wearing hearing aids and having cochlear implants is just the beginning of the journey. Children with hearing loss need more intense and intentional intervention with support from trained therapists and teachers.

Your donations can MAKE A DIFFERENCE to our children and their families.
