This year, the RLA Day focuses on rallying support towards the disability cause and PwDs in Singapore through the following:
a) Raising awareness about disability and PwDs in Singapore among the community
b) Nurturing a sustained relationship between organizations which support PwDs and stakeholders in the community through volunteer-beneficiary engagements and more
c) Encouraging donations to RLAF’s fundraising for organizations which provide services and support for PwDs via President’s Challenge
The COVID-19 pandemic has grievously affected societies and economies worldwide. Globally, it has taken millions of lives, sickened many more and disrupted countless jobs and businesses. Singapore was also hit hard, particularly in some industry sectors like aviation and tourism. In the social service sector, many smaller social service agencies including those which provide help to PwDs faced difficulties in raising funds to continue their good work. As the vulnerable groups in our society are the most susceptible to the negative impact of the pandemic, such as job displacements and social isolation, help is needed by them and the agencies supporting them.
Furthermore, greater support is needed for PwDs in the longer term due to growing trends. Firstly, PwDs are living longer and it is critical to expand efforts to enable them to live independently as they age. Secondly, the number of persons diagnosed with autism is growing and services to support them need to be enhanced. Thirdly, as the population ages and family size shrinks, ageing caregivers will find it harder to take care of their grown-up children and themselves. Support for older persons in caregiving roles has to expand.
