About Campaignends 09 Jan 2022, 11:59 PM
Stephanie has Cerebral Palsy with Developmental Delay & is fully dependent on others for her activities of daily living. The 35-year-old is currently staying with her elderly parents in a 3-room flat. Her mother is a stroke survivor who is on dialysis treatment & her father has diabetes with hypertension.
Stephanie relies on SPD's specialized transport to get to SPD's Day Activity Centre (DAC) where she learns self-help skills to be more independent. Due to the family's limited financial resources, her transport fees are fully subsidized by SPD, and this makes it possible for Stephanie to continue benefiting from the care that the DAC provides.
Every month, an average of $18,000 in transport subsidies is provided to over 70 people with disabilities, majority of whom has physical & multiple disabilities from low-income families.
Please donate to help relieve the financial burdens of our people with disabilities and their families.
Update: Thank you for helping us to reach our target. We have increased our target and hope to obtain your support to help the low-income families with family members with disabilities on a longer term.

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.
