Continue To Be Brave – By Board Member Dr Tan Jit Seng
Dear CaringSG Members,
I am a physician seeing Persons with Intellectual disabilities almost daily. I hear many sad and troubling stories and I also hear many inspiring stories of caregivers and individuals.
If it takes a village to raise a child, it will take the entire society to chip in and raise a special one!
Continue to be brave and share with us your highs and lows.
We go through the journey together and together we will be stronger and better!
