Our Campaign Storyends 27 Apr 2018, 11:59 PM
Who here has ever got into a paying job before they were 14 years old? I did! If I thought that life was tough, there are plenty others who are facing greater challenges. As a finalist for Mrs. Singapore 2018, and mother myself, it is my honor and privilege to be given this platform. The finalists of the pageant celebrated World Down Syndrome day 2018 in March together with the members of DSA and this left an imprint on my heart for the families, children and members of DSA. When one of the fathers told the story of a teen who was born premature with Down syndrome and was told by the doctors he would not last beyond a week and he did, the entire hall was electric! DSA is a self-funding, non-profit voluntary welfare organization with IPC (Institute of Public Character) status, which works closely and regularly with healthcare and educational professionals, and voluntary welfare organizations. http://www.downsyndrome-singapore.org/post/view/6/9
The funds raised will go to support the various programs which DSA runs such as the Adult Enhancement Programme, the DSA's Children's Education Services, which seeks to promote services for children with Down syndrome from birth to the age of 18 and this includes Educational Planning Service, Integration Facilitation Support Programme, Infant Toddler Programme and the Educational Enrichment Programme.Give to my campaign today to help me raise the cost of educating, teaching and developing our friends at DSA
