Flag Day 2021 – Surging ahead with Tenacity

A year has passed since COVID-19 stormed the world. Many have been affected by it physically and/or financially. SADeaf has too endured a torrid and challenging 2020; receiving lesser donations and a reduction in the number of donors.

Will there be a cure for COVID-19? When will life return to how it used to be? No one knows exactly what life will look like in the future.

Surging ahead with tenacity and braving the new norm, SADeaf is launching our Flag Day 2021 campaign from 1st Jan 2021 till 31st March 2021. We urge support from everyone to sustain our services for the Deaf, Hard-of-Hearing and Deafblind community and build up capabilities and resources to face uncertainties of the future.

The SADeaf 2021 Flag Day Campaign will be accepting donation via the following modes:

– Online donation via
– Cheque, Direct bank transfer or PayNow
– Physical donation box placement
– 3rd party fundraiser
