We will continue to take care of Mansur and others whose caregivers are in the essential workforce and cannot find alternative care arrangements, as well as those whose caregivers are too frail to care for them. Here, our training officers ensure proper care and safety of our clients, whilst adhering to the circuit-breaker measures. Knowing that Mansur is safe and meaningfully engaged at DAC has given his mother peace of mind at work.
We are still unable to provide our usual care for many of our clients. However, rest assured that we will continue to give them weekly calls to provide advice and worksheets so that they are engaged at home. We are also supporting their caregivers, who can contact our social workers if they need help.
With the cancellation of many charity events, we have experienced a drastic drop in donations, which will likely continue for the rest of the year. Please consider using your $300 / $600 Enhanced Care and Support cash payout and $100 PAssion Card Top-up to help us to keep our programmes running so that we can continue to provide the much-needed support for people with disabilities and their caregivers. Thank you.
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.
