Special Needs Care
We are here to enhance public awareness and understanding of people with disabilities, also to encourage the establishment of an inclusive society. We aim to empower VWOs in providing innovative solutions in the disability and special needs space.
As Singapore hurdles towards an ageing population, it is our primary pursuit to provide holistic care for the elderly who have played an important role in our families. We believe that improving the quality of care and preserving their dignity will help our seniors live and age happily.
Medical Assistive Devices
Through early intervention and integrated technology, we hope to enhance the daily routine, mobility and learning abilities of the underprivileged, as well as their participation in the community.
At Chua Foundation, we welcome VWOs with underfunded programmes in the areas of special needs care, elderly care and medical assistive devices to apply for our funding. Please visit our Application page or click Apply.
