But new challenges awaits us. Some of our beneficiaries have regressed during this period, losing skills which have taken years that they were trained in. They will require more intensive training when they return.
Though remote support is in place, daily skills training, memory, motor skills, and Active Daily Living skills (ADLs) needs to be regularly reinforced to our beneficiaries with face-to-face interaction and training.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, much of our physical fundraising events have been scaled back or cancelled which affected our donations. We are appealing for funds so as to continue the programmes and services of our clients. These funds will mean a lot to our clients and their caregivers for their wellbeing.
Help us so that we can continue doing what we are doing:
- Conduct counselling, special education and help students during this stressful period.
- Continue our medical home visits to patients of Metta Hospice Care and HomeCare.
- Provide a shelter over the heads of our clients with intellectual disability with meals, training, activities and medical assistance.
Let us ride through these difficult times together as a community.
