About Campaignends 31 Aug 2017, 11:59 PM
In 2016, Mr Kua sought help from SPD when their savings were entirely used up. SPD, a charity supported by Community Chest, supports Joo Phiau through counseling, long-term care plans as well as offer befriending services for Mr Kua to alleviate his caregiver stress. As age is catching up, Mr Kua is not as fit as before with arthritis in his left knee. He also walks with a limp and cannot stand for extended periods of time due to a previous spine operation. Despite the physical strain, Mr Kua continues his devoted care for Joo Phiau to his best.
We would like to invite you to journey with us so that our supported charities can continue to help beneficiaries like Joo Phiau on a long term basis. Thank you for your support in creating a better tomorrow and a brighter future, as One.
