Our Campaign Storyends 01 Jul 2023, 11:59 PM
Meet Sheryl (not her real name), a 5-year-old student from Canossaville Preschool (CPS). She was diagnosed with bilateral hearing loss at birth and fitted with cochlear implants, a small electronic device that electrically stimulates the cochlear nerve to help her improve her ability to hear.
Prior to attending CPS, Sheryl spoke mostly Mandarin at home. She had very little exposure to English, thereby struggling a lot to understand what was going on in her previous school. Her parents transferred her to CPS, hoping for her to pick up the language and be more proficient in it.
Canossaville offers holistic support for children with hearing loss like Sheryl through the Early Intervention and various therapies on-site. Thanks to our team of educators and therapists, Sheryl is now able to express herself in English using short sentences and participates actively in her class discussions.
Thank you for Making A Difference!
This is an impact story as part of Canossaville's Making A Difference campaign! Donations shall be eligible for a 40% dollar matching by the Singapore Government and Tote Board up to cap of $250,000 per charity. Every dollar counts towards our work!
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.
