A fleet of vehicles specially adapted to suit commuters on walkers and wheelchairs takes Alvin and Karen to and from the Workshop each day. Since starting work, Madam Ang observed several positive changes in her children. "Alvin was the quieter of the two, and unable to speak well," she said. "He is communicating more clearly now and is better able to understand the instructions given." There, the siblings are engaged in sub-contract work such as packing products for commercial distribution and goody bags for events. "Working with their hands at the Workshop has helped them improve their mobility, and they also have more friends," said Madam Ang. "They have something to do every day," she added.
SPD helps Alvin and Karen, and over 5,000 persons with disabilities. They need your support to remain as active members of our society.
