Hi, I'm Thimajit. My fellow beneficiaries-Juraimi and Siew Han, who wrote to you for the past festive seasons, send their best regards to you.
I'm born with cerebral palsy, a condition that affected my movement, posture and muscle tone of the left side of my body. Instead of feeling sorry and find life meaningless, I have taken the day-to-day challenges in my stride and am determine to be cheerful and positive in life. Doctor has advised me to attend rehabilitation sessions to maintain my functional abilities and prevent further deterioration. Travelling to rehabilitation sessions poses a challenge to me both physically and financially.
Thankfully, Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) has been providing me with heavily subsidized rehabilitation and wheelchair-accessible transport service since 2013 to take the burden off my father, who is a taxi driver and sole bread winner. My mother has to stay home to care for me.
HWA has been experiencing a challenging period due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is because of the magnanimity of donors like your good self that HWA is able to continue its mission of serving people with physical disabilities and the elderly.
On behalf of all our beneficiaries, myself, Juraimi and Siew Han would like to say "Thank You" for being a Blessing in our lives and for sharing your gifts to help us during this festive season.
With Best Wishes this Season Greetings.
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!
