Thank you for being part of our community.
I am Lee Pei Ling, my husband George Ng, and the joy of our life, our precious son, Matthew. Both I and my husband are HWA's beneficiaries.
Due to a virus attack when I was 13 months old, I suffered from weakness in both my hands and legs-a medical condition known as Quadriparesis. My condition deteriorated when I was 18 years old after which I have to depend on wheelchair for mobility. George suffers from paralysis on the right side of his body due to a stroke he suffered when he was 17 years old.
Our son Matthew was born in 2014. When the nurse first placed baby Matthew near me, just after his birth, I could not stop crying. It was a miracle to have my baby as I never dreamt that I would ever be a mother with my disabilities. Even now I feel deeply emotional whenever I hold my son. He is in Primary 1 this year.
Both I and my husband are thankfully, gainfully employed as an administrative assistant and a graphic designer respectively. We have many people to thank for in our journey. My supportive family, and HWA for providing us with subsidised transport, rehabilitation services and many social and recreational activities.
Thank you so much our Dear Donor for your blessings in our life's journey! We are grateful for your continued support all these years and during these difficult and unpredictable times.
Pei Ling, George & Matthew
On behalf of HWA beneficiaries & Staff
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!
