About Campaign

Over the years at SPD, we saw how assistive technology has given 7-year-old Ruo En, who has cerebral palsy, a voice and the ability to connect with those around her. Through vocational training and job placement support, we helped 60-year-old Kamaruddin regain his sense of dignity and achieve economic independence after an amputation due to diabetes. We also remember fondly how we rejoiced together with Steve Chong when he got out of his wheelchair to take his first unaided steps after months of working closely with our physiotherapist. The 40-year-old came to us in the hopes of finding work again after sustaining a spinal cord injury. I am happy to share that Steve is working as a project engineer now.

There is much work waiting ahead but with your continued support, we have the confidence to focus on doing more of what we do best - helping people with disabilities lead more enriching and independent lives.

If you support what we do and would like to help us further our work, you could make an online donation to SPD. Alternatively, please make cheque payable to "SPD", indicating your name, NRIC number, e-mail address, contact number and "Enabling Lives" at the back of the cheque.

Wishing you a Happy New Year!

About the Charity

SPD is a local charity set up in 1964 to help people with disabilities maximise their potential and be a part of mainstream society.

We are here to help children and youths with special needs reach for the stars and be the best that they can be through early intervention and educational support.

We strive to boost the self-reliance and mobility of persons with disabilities within the community, and we do so through therapy services, assistive technology and the support and encouragement of our care team.

Our day care programmes provide respite to families, making it possible for persons with disabilities to stay with their loved ones at home for as long as possible without having to resort to institutional care.

A strong advocate for inclusive employment, we train people with disabilities and work with them to seek suitable employment opportunities so that they can be financially independent and lead a full and engaged life.

After more than 50 years, we remain focused and committed to enabling people with disabilities.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
