This project holds a special place in the hearts of these Industrial and Business Management alumni from the Nanyang University. Karaoke singing sessions have been instrumental in reuniting these classmates after decades apart. The project is their meaningful way of looking back to the good old days while doing their part to help others move forward in life.
The Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) is grateful to the Nantah IBM Class of '76 for designating PSS as the beneficiary of this fundraising project.
The PSS currently serves over 400 active members who attend physiotherapy and other activities to improve their mobility. Other programmes such as vocal training, dexterity-based workshops like calligraphy and the MaxMind programme which aids in cognitive stimulation for people with Parkinson's Disease.
Caregivers' workshops, and the Youthful Parkinson Circle (for those diagnosed earlier in life and the newly diagnosed) support group are also offered to help people with Parkinson, and their caregivers manage with Parkinson.
Your donations help keep these therapeutic programs going for our beneficiaries.
We seek your help in enabling the sustainability of these programs for the Parkinson community.
About the Charity
Parkinson is the second most common neurodegenerative disease affecting 3 out of every 1,000 people aged 50 and above. Singapore's first community-based Parkinson Centre at Bishan provides people with Parkinson and their caregivers with the much needed support beyond those provided in hospitals.
Parkinson Society Singapore (PSS) was formed on 16 December 1996 by a group of doctors and caregivers to help people living with Parkinson. The society was registered as a charity on 28 January 2000 and is a member of National Council of Social Service (NCSS).
Since then, the Society has organized a number of programmes including therapeutic exercise programmes, social and recreational activities and annual public forums, aimed at improving the lives of People with Parkinson (PwP).
The Society also works closely with support groups in various hospitals and publishes newsletters and books to raise the awareness of Parkinson. In Singapore, there are more than 8,000 PwP and the number of PwP is expected to go up in our rapidly ageing population.
