About Campaignends 22 Apr 2017, 11:59 PM
I'm Charlie Ong, and have been a member of Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) since 1980s. Being born with a physical disability, even commuting between home and workplace has always been tough for me.
Thankfully, I could rely on the dedicated, door-to-door transport services provided by HWA. For the past 10 years, HWA's wheelchair-accessible vans have enabled me to get to and from work daily, six days a week, comfortably and safely.
HWA annual Wheel, Walk or Jog 2017 will be held soon on Saturday, 22nd April 2017, 11am to 7pm, at the Queen Elizabeth Walk, Esplanade Park. For 48 years, HWA has consistently responded to the call of People with disabilities/mobility difficulties, providing programmes and services
I hope you can help HWA to help us. No help or donation is too small, to make a meaningful difference. Thank You so much for supporting HWA mission of serving people with disabilities.
About the Charity
For the past 40 years, the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA), a voluntary welfare organisation, has been providing much needed services to people with physical disabilities so as to facilitate their integration into mainstream society. Although HWA is a member of the National Council of Social Services (NCSS), it is not funded by the Community Chest and therefore has to raise its own funds to meet the cost of running all its programmes and services that benefit over 2,100 people with physical disabilities who are registered with the Association. It has become increasingly difficult to raise the money to run our programmes and services. We therefore have to rely on the generosity of corporations and members of the public for financial support.
