Our Campaign Storyends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM
Prior to Covid, JEN Singapore Tanglin by Shangri-La (HJTS) regularly supports and engage the beneficiaries in SPD via organising activities and inviting the beneficiaries to the hotel. Due to Covid, all engagement activities were ceased and our efforts to support the beneficiaries were very limited due to the restrictions in place.
As a team in HJTS, we believe and want to do more for the beneficiaries in SPD despite the current limitations. We aim to run, walk and cycle 500km to create awareness, and support for them and hope that everyone will open up your hearts and support us by donating for a good cause in conjunction with the SPD Ability Run & Walk 2021 from 20th November to 3rd December 2021.
We will be updating how much distance we have covered here. As we race, we hope you can raise for us and donate generously to reach and surpass our target by 31 December 2021.
Updated 2 Dec 21 - Total Distance covered: 671km
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.
