From 5 April to 30 June 2021, GDS commemorated International Guide Dog Day (IGDD). We celebrated and spotlight the amazing role these endearing animals and their dedicated professionals play in the lives of the vision-impaired community.
As the only organisation in Singapore that provides guide dogs, the support garnered will make life-changing transformation to our clients who hope to have increased mobility and freedom. Our outreach and advocacy efforts have also increased the awareness and acceptance of the use of guide dogs in Singapore as we continue to build a more inclusive society for the vision-impaired community.
