Charity event raised funds for the visually impaired!

SINGAPORE: About 500 people attended a charity gala dinner on Friday night to raise funds for the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped.

Among them were President S R Nathan and his wife.

It was even more special for Mrs Nathan when she met three former students who are visually impaired.

She was their teacher at the Johor Convent School in 1965.

The evening also showcased the special talents of the visually-impaired through performances and their artwork.

The association is raising funds to serve its 3,100 visually-impaired clients who require rehabilitation and aftercare services.

The national voluntary welfare organisation, which provides such services in Singapore, needs S$150,000 monthly to run its programmes.
