Dear Members and Friends

This week I want to highlight the work of people who advocate for and support our fellow citizens, who are differently abled, to access the dignity of work. Just because someone is in a wheelchair does not mean they can’t be an effective team member.

Some of you are members or friends of the Singapore Business Network on Disability (SBNoD) and I salute your motivation and your work. You are role models for every company, everywhere.

Another enabling group I admire is the team at SPD which has been supporting differently abled citizens for over 55 years through a range of programmes. Like SBNoD, an important goal of SPD is to enable differently abled people to get jobs, to contribute to society, to be self-reliant and not be institutionalised. Click here to read more about their work.

SPD is a registered charity and like many has had to cancel fund raising activities because of the pandemic. Never to be daunted, the committed and energetic team has come up with the SPD STAR Programme which is a monthly giving programme. I commend it to you.

Why is monthly giving important?

• With the Covid-19 pandemic, numerous fund raising activities have been cancelled
• There has been a decrease in donations
• A steady and predictable source of funding for support programmes and services to benefit our differently abled citizens is needed
• It allows SPD to better plan these programmes and services

Learn more about the programme and how you can help here and don’t stop there. Be open in your hiring to see the person’s potential not the wheelchair. To see the human first. Always.

Have a great week ahead.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
