Hi, we are Physiotherapists from Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) serving infants to adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabilities. Cerebral palsy is a lifelong and non-curable condition resulting from a brain damage and causes a person to have physical impairments.
As physiotherapists, we provide comprehensive assessment and customized treatment to improve gross motor function of our clients.
Our association was started humbly over 60 years ago at the Field House at Gilstead road. Throughout the years, our association has expanded to serve more clients and provide more comprehensive services through the kind donations from many organizations and individual donors.
The unprecedented covid-19 has affected charities like CPAS. More importantly, many of our usual corporate donors have also been affected badly and are unable to make donations towards the upkeep of our equipment and association operation expenses.
In conjunction with World Cerebral Palsy Month in October, our team is making an appeal for individual donors like yourself to make a small contribution as part of the Spare Your Change For Suzy campaign. Suzy is the iconic ambassador and donation box of CPAS and she raises awareness and critical funds to fund all programs and services at CPAS.
Every dollar raised with be matched by Tote Board and the government.
Thank you to everyone for taking time to read our appeal.
