Our Campaign Story

ends 23 Jul 2021, 11:59 PM

The stereotypes and prejudices against the comparison between para-sports community and able-bodied sports community is often overlooked in Singapore, resulting in the public's difficulties acknowledging and supporting the efforts of Persons With Disabilities (PWD) athletes.

Through our campaign, we want people to realise that even though the PWD athletes are viewed as flawed, it is these flaws that help them to become who they are today. Even during the COVID-19 crisis, we aim to help PWD athletes continue to find perfection within imperfection.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) has faced a drop in funding and their sporting events & competitions (e.g 2020 ASEAN Para Games & 2020 Paralympics etc.) have been cancelled or postponed indefinitely. By donating, your funds can be used to help in the following ways:

-Scholarships offered by SDSC for PWD athletes
-Transportation fees for PWD athletes due to additional safety measures
-Purchase of hand sanitisers, masks and other COVID-19
related resources
-Other Logistics e.g sports equipment

Every donation goes a long way to give a PWD athlete a chance to redefine perfection within the sports community. Take the first step to donate to our cause and be part of the progress towards a more inclusive society in Singapore.

About The Charity

The SDSC is the national sports body for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs), founded in 1973. It aims to transform the lives of PWDs through sport as a form of rehabilitative therapy, and means to realise their potential. Besides providing platforms for learning sport, SDSC trains talents to represent Singapore at regional and international competitions. Our success stories include Jason Chee, former para table tennis player and ASEAN Para Games gold medalist, and Yip Pin Xiu, Singapore's first Paralympic gold medallist. SDSC depends on the kind and generous contributions of corporate sponsors and members of the public to advance its cause.

SDSC aspires to provide the disabled with opportunities to train, participate and excel in sports for local, regional and international competitions; to enhance the lifestyles of the disabled and integrate them into the community through recreational sports and activities; and to increase public awareness of and promote widespread support for the sporting and recreational needs of the disabled community in Singapore.
