I am one of the many beneficiaries who have benefited from your gifts for the past festive seasons. My fellow beneficiary Siew Han, who has been writing to you for the past two festive seasons, sends her best wishes to you.
I was born with cerebral palsy. My family has been my core pillar of support, but it is increasingly tough for my aging mother who has to take care of me by herself as my father suffers from dementia and is now in a nursing home.
I am grateful to Handicaps Welfare Association for providing me with fully subsidised rehabilitation therapy to help maintain my physical and functional abilities. As most of my movements are limited, the regular rehabilitation sessions help me to maintain my physical conditions and prevent further deterioration.
Travelling to rehabilitation sessions poses a challenge to me. Fortunately, Handicaps Welfare Association also provides me with fully subsidised wheelchair accessible transport to fetch me to my regular rehabilitation sessions.
For the past 50 years, HAndicaps Welfare Association has been able to fulfill its mission of serving people with physical disabilities like me and Siew Han because of the generosity shown to us by kind people like your good self.
On behalf of all our beneficiaries, I and Siew Han would like to say "Thank You" for opening your heart during this festive season to help us.
We are grateful and wish you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !
Juraimi and Siew Han
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!
