Our Campaign Storyends 01 Jul 2023, 11:59 PM
Alfie (not his real name) is a 5-year-old student from Canossaville Preschool (CPS). Being in CPS also enables both his parents to work and support their family of 9, but they struggle to send him to school regularly due to their busy work schedules.
Thanks to the support from our partners and donors, Canossaville was able to subsidise Alfie's fees and arranged for him to come to CPS on the school bus. We also arranged for his family to benefit from our regular care pack distributions, providing them with food and daily necessities to ease their burden.
Thanks to his improved attendance, Alfie has shown great improvement in managing his hearing loss. He is more vocal and has learnt sign language to aid his communication with others.
Your donations will enable us to continue supporting children like Alfie and his family.

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 2023.
Canossaville is a social service agency in MacPherson supporting typically developing children and those with hearing loss and learning needs from birth to 12 years old by providing them an inclusive environment for learning and play. With the first option for the poor, provide extra support for the vulnerable families in our community through social and psychological aid.
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.
Together We Make A Difference!
The Making A Difference (M.A.D) Fund is set up to support children and their families within Canossaville's community. Donations raised will be utilised for programmes and activities dedicated to children, especially those with hearing loss and multiple disabilities. This could include, but are not limited to programme fee subsidies, purchase of equipment and resources essential to the running of programmes and services.
