Merdeaf Flag Day 17 Feb 2024

Dear All,

Sincere Greetings from the Singapore Association for the Deaf (SADeaf) ! 

SADeaf has been serving close to 6000 Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing persons in the past 68 years.  Our wide range of services include social and mental health support, employment support, financial assistance, counselling, education support, early childhood intervention, hearing care, Sign language interpretation, note-taking, sign language classes, as well as Singapore’s only DeafBlind programme.

Over the years, we have strived to provide essential services, support, and opportunities that empower Deaf & Hard-of-hearing individuals to overcome challenges and lead fulfilling lives.  

As we strive steadfastly to uplift the quality of life of people with hearing loss, the journey has not been easy. The COVID-pandemic has dealt a blow to our fundraising efforts, while the needs of our clients increased. As we endeavour to expand the coverage of our services, more funds will be needed.  In particular, we plan to increase the capacity of our Early Intervention Program for young Deaf children, as well as initiate a hearing test project for elderly within the community. 

SADeaf is organising a MerDeaf Flag Day on Saturday, 17 February 2024.  We wish to appeal to your School to support our street collection effort, to allow SADeaf to not only continue with essential services, but also extend support to more people in need.

We sincerely appeal for your help, to encourage your students to join us as Flag Ambassadors, to help collect donations at various crowded locations island-wide.
