A strong contingent of over 60 persons from SADeaf, made up of our clients, members, volunteers, supporters and staff, joined thousands at the 4th Purple Parade event held at Suntec City on 5th November to celebrate the inclusion and abilities of people with special needs.

 

It was the first time that the event was being held in the City area, with participants packing the Raffle Boulevard atrium all the way to the Fountain of Wealth circus. The place was awash with the colour purple, as many donned purple T-shirts and hats, including the Guest of Honour Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam, who turned up clad in a purple polo shirt.

 

SADeaf sign interpreters were present on stage throughout the event so that our Deaf and Hard-of-hearing community could follow the programmes too.
