About Campaignends 31 Dec 2015, 11:59 PM
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.
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.
