It Takes a Village to Raise a Child – By Board Advisor Ms Denise Phua
It takes a village to raise a child. This is even more true for children with special needs or disabilities. That village includes their families and the rest of society.
CaringSG seeks to build an inclusive Singapore through connecting, enabling and empowering the caregivers who often are the main supporters of their beloved special children. It adopts a unique and structured approach to reach out and tap on partners from the larger community of professional and grassroots volunteers and fellow caregivers.
CaringSG’s mission is worthy. I urge you to be an active contributor of your time, funds and other support in honour of this cause.
Alone, one can do so little. Together, we can achieve much more. Only then, will Singapore grow from strength to strength.

When our CaringSG CAREwell Keyworker, Lee Xiuhua, first met the Teys at their home, they were overwhelmed with their son’s, Ryan’s, behaviour and worried about his future.
