About Campaign

ends 31 Dec 2015, 12 AM

We will share a lollipop with a person with disabilities for every donation.

Kang Chor Kian, 34, became semi-paralysed after a stroke. He uses a wheelchair but having difficulty wheeling himself due to his weakened limbs, he has to rely on his mother to get around. He became depressed that he would never be able to walk again.

With counselling from his social worker at SPD, Chor Kian is slowly coming to terms with his condition. He is working at the SPD Sheltered Workshop where he earns a small allowance with simple jobs like packing and tagging products. He is one of the many persons with disabilities who benefit from SPD’s programmes and services which include therapy, provision of special transport and counselling.

Sometimes, knowing that we are not alone in our struggles gives us hope and strength to face another day, even if the future is uncertain. This is what SPD strives to do for Chor Kian and many others like him.
