Sereen suffered from a stroke when she was just 16 years. It has not been easy for her, but she was strong and continued to live an independent life. Under the SPD Employment Support programme, she was trained and placed to work as a part-time receptionist at a hotel in Singapore. But since the escalation of the COVID-19 situation, her workdays were cut down and eventually, she was asked not to come in for work for now due to cost-cutting measures.

Sereen lost her husband last year due to cancer and is currently the primary caregiver to her 80 year old, cancer-stricken mother. Having no source of income worries her constantly as she has to continue paying for daily and medical expenses.

We are in the midst of finding a full-time job and training opportunities for Sereen. With the current situation, it is very challenging and we expect to see more clients facing financial hardships.

We need your help even more during this difficult time. Please consider using your $600 Solidarity Payment to help people with disabilities like Sereen. Thank you for supporting persons with disabilities during this difficult period.

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.
