COVID-19 Situation in Singapore

The Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf) salutes our medical professionals, cleaners and others serving on the frontlines in the midst of the COVID-19 situation in Singapore. Likewise, SADeaf staff – such as our learning support executives, sign language interpreters, notetakers, case managers and speech therapist – continue to serve our clients in schools, hospitals and at workplaces. 

As the crisis has impacted on the economy and on our fundraising activities, we wish to appeal for donations from the general public. Help us by donating now so that we can stretch your donations to enable us to raise more funds to better serve our Deaf, hard-of-hearing and Deafblind community.
