MINDS Charity Event 2018
For this year’s charity event, we worked with MINDS to show our support for the organisation’s goals to provide equal opportunities for the intellectual disabled children to receive education, and later be integrated as contributing and responsible citizens of Singapore!
Our company was then split into two teams – one team accompany the clients to SEA Aquarium, while the other team did spring cleaning and painting of the facility to ensure that the environment remains conducive and clean for the clients to learn in. Despite the physical tasks on a humid day, it was all worth it when we witnessed the smiles on their faces as the clients returned back from their outing.
Although not all of us have had any experience with interacting with clients with special needs, it was still a heartwarming experience as we learnt how to be patient while interacting with them and seeing the smiles on their faces.
