Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Feb 2022, 11:59 PM

My name is Venture Liang. I am a stroke survivor, currently doing my rehabilitation at SPD.
I suffered from a ruptured brain aneurysm in my head on 21 March 2020 with residual impairments. This has affected my ability to perform daily tasks. I wasn't able to raise my left arm due to the stroke but has since recovered through rehabilitation.
I learnt to be patient and calm to avoid having a second stroke. I still tend to be forgetful and make mistakes.
Despite my stroke I still reach out to help the needy at SPD by selling books and plants to raise funds.
I am thankful to my partner Alvin for taking care of me and my dog Amica for being my companion and making me laugh and encouraging me to be strong so that I can take good care of her again. I would also like to express my gratitude to Alvin's family for preparing food for me.
I attended Occupational, Speech and Physiotherapy at SPD.
Physiotherapy: SPD helped me to stand up again by relying less on the wheelchair. I learn how to run on a treadmill.
Occupational Therapy: SPD helped me by teaching how to cook a simple meal such as, instant noodles for myself and showering.
Speech Therapy: SPD helped me in guiding how to draft/reply to emails. As a communication specialist, email is a major part of my daily work to communicate with my colleagues and customers.
Please support SPD and and people with disabilities like me

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.
