About Campaign

As a charity organisation set up to empower people with disabilities, we feel it is important to create awareness on the importance of unity as human beings regardless of physical or mental limitations. Living with a disability can be a long journey, both mentally and physically. It can be just as challenging for people who live with or care for someone with disabilities. Friends and family may too find it difficult to come to terms with the condition or adapt to new challenges and suffer from caregiver's burnout.

Counselling can help to address the different challenges we face. The aim of counselling is to provide a safe and supportive space for our beneficiaries and their caregivers to discuss their concerns and fears and work through their personal problems with a counsellor.

In the effort to enhance the mental health of our beneficiaries in these challenging times, FDS is implementing a Mental Wellness Programme, where we will be providing our friends with disabilities and their caregivers virtual counselling sessions. Weekly Group Psychoeducation Sessions will be conducted to teach our beneficiaries and caregivers life skills, coping skills and self-care techniques.

This campaign is supported by the Tote Board's Enhanced Fundraising Program. Which means every dollar you give is matched by the Tote Board for twice the impact. By donating generously to our cause, you can help us us continue to provide services to our Friends with disabilities.
Thank You.
