Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Oct 2021, 11:59 PM

My name is Yen Li. I am a Social Worker at Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS), supporting caregivers in their 50s to 80s in their lifelong caregiving journey that comes with challenges and discoveries. The caregivers' hope for their loved ones with cerebral palsy has given them the optimism to see goodness beyond pain and disappointment.

I am humbled by their courage to face difficulties with and for their loved ones.

Suzy represents a girl with cerebral palsy, a lifelong and non-curable condition. It is a complex condition resulting from a brain damage which causes a wide range of limitations in movement, muscle control and cognition.

“We rise by lifting others.” Robert Ingersoll. Join me, our caregivers and Suzy in raising funds for our beneficiaries.
