"Dana" means Fund in bahasa and "Ohana" means Family.

Hi my name is Nuraslindah and this are my 2 nieces Shalyna and Farisha. We are currently working at Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS), a charity that provides care and services for children and adults with cerebral palsy and multiple disabiltiies.

As October is World Cerebral Palsy Month, we wanted to form a team to help raise awareness and funds for CPAS. There's no better way to do so as a Family! Hence our campaign title is "Dana Ohana".

Shalyna and myself work in the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Children (EIPIC). EIPIC is for children aged 6 and below with various special needs and disabilities. The goal of the program is to prepare the child for their next stage of education, be it a mainstream primary school or a special needs school.

Farisha is a Speech Therapist Aide with our Speech, Language and Pathology (SLP) Department. Her department looks at the assessment and management of Speech, Language, Communication, Literacy, as well as Feeding and Swallowing skills.

Cerebral Palsy is a non-curable, lifelong condition. We hope you can make a small contribution as it will be matched dollar for dollar as part of the Spare Your Change For Suzy campaign. If you were wondering, Suzy Doll is the girl that represents cerebral palsy and have been a familiar sight in Singapore!

Your donation will support over 700 children & adults at CPAS.

We thank you so much for supporting our campaign!
