About Campaign

Aidil, 27, was born with cerebral palsy, a condition that affects his ability to move and maintain balance and posture, as well as profound hearing loss. He was raised by his maternal grandparents and heavily depends on them for his daily needs.

In 2002, Aidil, then 7, fell from the window of his HDB flat and sustained life-threatening head injuries. Due to the fall from the third floor, Aidil required surgery to insert a titanium plate into his skull.

Since 2014, he has been enrolled in the SPD Day Activity Centre (DAC), where he is meaningfully engaged with social and recreational activities and has opportunities to learn and develop daily living and community living skills. He receives 100% financial assistance for day care services and fees for kerb-to-kerb special transport service that brings him from home to SPD and back.

About 85 persons with severe disabilities (PwDs) aged 18 to 55 come to the SPD DAC daily, so that their caregivers can receive the much-needed respite from long-term caregiving, preventing burnout and family disintegration.

This Christmas season, we invite you to uplift the lives of Aidil and other PwDs by donating generously to help relieve the financial burdens of their families. Help them to access the much-needed care services with this source of support.

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.
