It is starting to look like the most wonderful time of the year - a time for gathering with loved ones and spending quality time together. We are immensely thankful for the supporters and donors who journeyed with us throughout the year. As the holiday season begins and a new year beckons, let us not forget the importance of giving back.
What does “Independence” mean in the life of a person with vision impairment (VI)? When living with VI, everyday life can feel unfamiliar even in a familiar environment. The new normality after the pandemic has posed unique challenges and forced many changes on our friends with vision loss, making it challenging for them to adapt and live independently.
Celebrate International Guide Dog Day (IGDD) with us!
This year, in conjunction with IGDD, Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd (GDS) is organising a Virtual Flag Day 2022 fundraiser from now till 31 May 2022! Join us to pledge your support for our guide dog heroes and the team of dedicated professionals behind every successful pair of handler and guide dog.
Last year, we welcomed three new dogs-in-training - Eve, Jade and Laurie! On behalf of our clients who will be paired with the three dogs, we thank you for enabling them to have greater independence and mobility.
There are currently six clients on our list waiting to be paired with guide dogs. Your support will bring us closer to our goal of raising $150,000 and help more GDS clients live the independent life they desire.
White Cane Day falls on 15 October and celebrates the achievements of people with vision loss, the important symbol of blindness and tool of independence, the white cane. Celebrate with us and double your gift from 10 September to 14 November.
