Our Campaign Story

ends 23 Nov 2022, 11:59 PM

L.E.G.O Week is an annual event conducted by NUS Students' Science Club which aims to raise awareness of a beneficiary of choice and give back to the community. This year, three subcommittees, namely Science Volunteer Corps, Receiving and Giving, Flag, have come together to plan a series of activities from 29 August to 1 September in collaboration with our partner beneficiary SPD.

SPD is a local charity set up to help people with disabilities of all ages to maximise their potential and integrate them into mainstream society. Through over 20 programmes that encompass early intervention, therapy, vocational training, assistive technology, day care, as well as educational, employment and social service support, we serve people with physical, sensory and learning disabilities.

Specifically, we will be targeting the elderlies with disabilities at [email protected] Payoh centre. To engage Science student population, meaningful activities such as note-writing and welfare pack packing, as well as fun games to raise awareness on various types of disabilities will be conducted over the course of the week. The event will finally end off with an interactive session at [email protected] centre where Science student volunteers directly engage with the elderly beneficiary.

Do show your support for our event and SPD by making a donation to help someone in need, thank you!

About The Charity

SPD is a local charity set up in 1964 to help people with disabilities maximise their potential and be a part of mainstream society.

We are here to help children and youths with special needs reach for the stars and be the best that they can be through early intervention and educational support.

We strive to boost the self-reliance and mobility of persons with disabilities within the community, and we do so through therapy services, assistive technology and the support and encouragement of our care team.

Our day care programmes provide respite to families, making it possible for persons with disabilities to stay with their loved ones at home for as long as possible without having to resort to institutional care.

A strong advocate for inclusive employment, we train people with disabilities and work with them to seek suitable employment opportunities so that they can be financially independent and lead a full and engaged life.

After more than 50 years, we remain focused and committed to enabling people with disabilities.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
