At Guide Dogs Singapore (GDS), we believe that people with vision impairment should not be limited by their loss of sight. As a non-profit social service agency, we aim to enhance the quality of life for people with vision impairment through rehabilitation and the use of guide dogs, and help them to integrate into society.
