About Campaignends 15 Jan 2023, 11:59 PM
Staying true to our mission, we continued to empower the lives of many persons with Down syndrome and their families through lifelong learning and social integration. At DSA, we have various programs and services catered for persons with Down syndrome such as our Infant Toddler Program, Integration Facilitation Support Program and Adult Education Services. We also provide support services for our families and caregivers.
Your donation is a gift to our many beneficiaries and 26-year-old Govinda Singh is one of them. Govinda attends Adult Enhancement Programme where he receives occupational therapy and physiotherapy to help improve his visual perceptual skills and motor skills. Currently, he can pack his own belongings, feed himself and use the washroom but faces challenges in attempting novel tasks and writing legibly. With more training and practice, he will soon be able to match and trace simple shapes and do simple household chores independently.
This Christmas, we would like to invite you to walk alongside us towards a more inclusive society and spread cheer among our community. Your gift will help our beneficiaries like Govinda find meaning and purpose in their daily activities and empower them to become more self-sufficient.
