About Campaign

While COVID-19 has affected many individuals and sectors, the impact on persons with disabilities and their caregivers is disproportionately huge. Those who are seeking employment or working are affected, with some already losing their jobs. Many have not been able to access rehabilitation and care services when centre-based services are suspended, while others face greater difficulty getting food and necessities due to mobility challenges.

During this unprecedented time, the C.A.R.E. initiative aims to meet the different needs of about 2000 identified persons with disabilities requiring enhanced support, in partnership with SG Enable's social service agency partners.
C.A.R.E. includes:
1. Cooked meals - to persons with physical disabilities or those with visual impairment living alone, or frail persons with disabilities/elderly caregivers
2. Assistance funds - a one-time cash relief for families with multiple persons with disabilities as they experience both financial hardship and caregiving stress. This helps defray some costs for daily expenses (e.g. medical expenses, consumables, etc)
3. Respite care - to low-income elderly caregivers caring for persons with disabilities to minimise risks of burn-out and/or injuries from 24/7 caregiving
4. Essentials distribution - fortnightly distribution of essentials and dry food rations to persons with physical disabilities or those with visual impairment living alone
