About Campaignends 28 Feb 2019, 11:59 PM
I'm Siew Han, 44 years old, a beneficiary of Handicaps Welfare Association (HWA) since Jul 2016.
In Jan 2015, I suffered a major stroke that left me bedridden & totally dependent in all activities of daily living. I almost gave up on life. During this very difficult and dark period, it was my aged parents, who are my main caregiver and who have given me the courage to live on. To take care of me, my elderly father has taken on odd jobs, working only part-time but cannot finance my subsistence needs.
Since Aug 2016, HWA has been assisting me with twice-weekly Home Personal Care, Home Nursing Service, Home Therapy and Home Medical Services. HWA's regular support and assistance have helped to relieve my family's burden and I have progressed with my physical and functional abilities.
Transportation to rehabilitation sessions & medical appointment poses a challenge for my parents too. Fortunately, HWA has been providing us with its rehab transport service and heavily subsidizing my rehabilitation and transport cost.
HWA has to rely on the kind donations of the public to fulfill its mission in providing needed services to fellow community members like me. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Your donation will help HWA in fulfilling its mission.
Thank you very much in advance for your festive gift. Wishing you a Merry X'mas & Happy New Year!

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!
