The birth of a child usually begins a journey of hope and aspiration for many of us. But that is not the case for Lee Yoke Sui. She was born prematurely and was diagnosed with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy at birth, having to face a lifetime of challenges.

Going to the neighbourhood mall or unwinding with a jog may be a routine for many of us. However, these seem to be a dream for Yoke Sui who struggles to move around her 3-room HDB flat.

Her 82-year old mother and primary caregiver, Mdm Yeo Buck Koo, has been looking after Yoke Sui dutifully for almost 25 years. Thankfully, with Yoke Sui attending SPD Day Activity Centre (DAC), Mdm Yeo is able to receive some respite to take care of her own health. Her recent hip replacement surgery left her having to cope with her own mobility challenges. Despite all these difficulties, Mdm Yeo never fails to flash a cheery smile whenever she sees Yoke Sui coming home after a day of fun and learning with her friends at the centre.

Our work at the DAC is critical in giving Yoke Siu and many like her a chance to stay meaningfully engaged in the community. It has also brought smiles to many families who could welcome their loved ones home every day. Will you join us in this journey to help people with disabilities stay in the community? It only takes a minute to impact the lives of many.

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.
