About Campaignends 09 Mar 2018, 11:59 PM
I'm Siew Han, a beneficiary of the Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) since July 2016.
In January 2015, I suffered a major stroke. Ever since then, I have become bedridden and dependent on practically all my Activities of Daily Living. I almost gave up on life. But my loved ones, including my aged parents and domestic helpier, have urged me to live on.
My loved ones have been my core pillar of support, but we face many challenges. My elderly father, the sole breadwinner of the household, takes on odd jobs, working only part-time, and cannot finance my subsistence needs. We still need help.
Fortunately since August 2016, I've been helped by HWA in receiving dedicated, regular Home Personal Care (which HWA has highly subsidised). HWA's twice-weekly bathing and weekly personalised Home Nursing service, as well as Home Therapy and Home Medical Services, have helped relieve my family's and my burden, for which we are very grateful.
For bed-bound people like me, to continue to receive regular care support, and to be able to afford these varied Home Personal Care services, we need your kind support.
Thank You very much for supporting HWA mission.
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!
