Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2022, 11:59 PM
Hi everyone, i am Sia Jin Zhu, a client from SPD.
I am suffering from Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, which left me permanently disabled since young.
However, my disability does not define me.
I am still able to lead an independent and wonderful life with the help from social workers and therapists at SPD.
I have learnt to always look on the brighter side and that when life gives me lemons, make lemonade.
Today, i am excited to launch this meaningful fundraising campaign to help make a difference in persons with disabilities (PWDs).
Funds collected in this special project will be earmarked to provide grocery vouchers for low income clients and their families.
Each eligible client and their family will be entitled to receive $50 worth of grocery vouchers every month.
With the rising cost of living, this will definitely help to alleviate their finanancial burden.
Join me for this noble cause that will bring positive change in our community!
Once again thank you so much for your generosity.
God Bless You.
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.
