Be a Christmas Angel!
About Campaignends 31 Dec 2015, 12 AM
*Zaki is a youth with special needs. He used to attend Metta Preschool’s early intervention programme which helped him in his motor skills and speech therapy. He moved on to Metta School, which provided him with special education, learning basic literacy and numeracy skills.
At 18 years old, graduating from Metta School, Zaki was unable to work due to his renal failure and bilateral hearing loss in addition to his intellectual disability. Taken under the wings of [email protected], an Alumni care programme, Zaki has trained and improved his skills in batik painting and pottery making.
Due to the severity of his medical condition, he remains at home but is still able to contribute by painting simple batik art which is crafted into products and sold. He is supported by a social worker and arts instructor.
Help us help *Zaki to remain independent, who finds joy in his craft, by being a Christmas Angel today!
