About Campaignends 30 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM
11 years ago, I was an abled body person with a job to support my wife and our 2 years old daughter. Suddenly, our lives were turned upside down, and my life would be changed forever.
My nightmare began in 2009. I was found unconscious, collapsed near my house. I woke up the next day with slurred speech, which was discovered to be a brain injury. Due to the injury, my physical and mental health has deteriorated to a stage where I am now dependent for help on most of my self-care activities.
My wife had to take care of me and our 2 years old daughter. It was a heavy load for my wife to cope as she had to work to support the family. Fortunately my elderly mother took over as my main caregiver, and my elderly father, who works as a groundskeeper, is always around to ensure our well-being.
To have my family going through the hardship of taking care of me, pains me deeply especially for my elderly parents who are getting weaker as the years go by. I was relieved when help came from HWA Home Care, which allowed me to be cared of from home and not be admitted into a care facility.
I have been a beneficiary of HWA's home care services for many years. Even during these trying times of Covid-19, HWA's Home Care staff have worked tirelessly to continue to provide these essential services at a heavily subsidized rates. This is made possible because of the magnanimity of donors like you.
We look forward to your continued support during these difficult times!
About the Charity
For the past 50 years, the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) has been providing needed services to people with physical disabilities. To fund its services to the needy beneficiaries, HWA has to rely on the generosity of the public and organisations for financial support.
In recent years, HWA has expanded its services to meet the increasing and changing needs of people with disabilities and the rapidly aging population. The number of beneficiaries that HWA served is also growing and this means HWA has to increase its staff strength to meet the needs of the beneficiaries.
With the continuing community support, HWA will be empowered to continue its mission in serving people with disabilities and the elderly.
On behalf of our beneficiaries, thank you so much for your support!
