As we celebrate this festive occasion, we are thankful for the blessings in our lives. Let's multiply our blessings by playing a part to improve the lives of those who have to overcome challenges everyday just to be able to do the simple things.
Help us to raise the much-needed funds so that people with disabilities such as 28 year-old Ivan, can learn to be as self-reliant and independent as possible.
Ivan has autism, intellectual disability and visual impairment. He is unable to speak or communicate with others on his needs.
For 16 years, Ivan spent his time at home as no centre would take him in. His mother, Mdm Esah could not work as she had to take care of him. Ivan needs help with going to the toilet and bathing, and has to have walks to calm him down. Taking care of him is not easy and it has taken a toll on her health.
Since 2018, Ivan has been coming to SPD twice a week. The therapists engage him in activities to increase his attention span and ability to focus. He is now able to sit still for more than 10 minutes, something he could not do previously.
We are thankful for the little improvements as we continue to work with him so that he can be more independent. This will give Mdm Esah the much-needed respite.

We develop programmes and services to help people with disabilities become more independent and self-reliant so that they can lead more fulfilling lives.
