The GDS Charity Christmas Party is an event to celebrate Christmas, all for a good cause! Our year-end celebration provides guests with the opportunity to know more about the visually impaired community and guide dogs, while helping to raise funds for the charity.

Nurul, beneficiary:
Orientation & Mobility (O&M) training has helped me to build my confidence in travelling on my own. With lots of training, practice and encouragement from my instructor, I am now able to do so confidently! I hope that when I get a job after I graduate, I would be able to go to work by myself.

Your involvement with us in this festive season can help us to carry on empowering our beneficiaries such as Nurul to lead fulfilling and independent lives.

Event Highlights:
- Lucky draw prizes
- Sure-win lucky dip
- Goodie bags
- Live Music by Jack and Rai, Johan from Johan & Jerome and The Good Karma
