About the event
Accessible public transport has always been a big issue for the disabled, especially the wheelchair users. Some public transport like MRT and certain buses are said to accommodate the disabled, however due to poor design in connectivity and very inaccessible walkways, many of the disabled are unable to enjoy such public transports. Currently there are a couple or so NGOs providing transport service for the disabled, however, priority is given to those going to hospitals only. The meagre supply can hardly meet the overwhelming transport needs of the disabled. Sad to say, many disabled are still confined to their homes, unable to go out, to live independently and to be integrated into the society!
To achieve inclusion and integration of the disabled in the community, transportation plays an extremely crucial role. We are currently in dire need for a wheelchair-accessible van for the operation of our Independent Living Centre. The said van will also help to achieve the following objectives:-
1. Uphold the rights to freedom of mobility for the disabled.
2. Equipping and empowering the disabled by attending the training and other services we provide.
3. Enable full inclusion and participation of the disabled in the community.
We extend our warm welcome to you to come alongside us to make the dreams of the disabled come true. We would deeply appreciate your kind donation toward this great cause to bring about a positive transformation to the lives of the disabled and to our community.
