Making a cup of coffee, dressing up yourself, or writing a simple message to a loved one - these are seemingly simple things that we do on a daily basis without much thought or effort.

But what if we lose the ability to use our dominant hand, be it through an accident or illness? These could become daunting tasks that challenge our self-reliance every day.

45-year-old Terence is among the many individuals whom SPD is supporting. When he was 23, Terence contracted Viral Encephalitis, a viral infection to the brain and lost his ability to walk, speak and control of his bladder. He had to relearn how to perform basic activities of daily living, very often with his non-dominant hand.

Much funds are needed to help people with disabilities (PWD) like Terence access therapy services and care to learn and maintain their functional mobility so as to perform daily tasks.

SPD is initiating this SPD Left Hand Challenge to encourage individuals like you to step into the shoes of a PWD like Terence to experience and overcome one day-to-day challenge.

Through this challenge, we aim to raise awareness of these day-to-day challenges faced by PWD and raise much needed funds to help them access therapy services and care to learn how to overcome their challenges.
