On 30 September 2017, DPA team was at ‘’White Cane Community Day – “Guide Dogs Can Lah!” organised by Guide Dogs Singapore Ltd. Celebrating the abilities and successes of persons with vision impairments, this event raised awareness about how persons with visual impairments live an independent life and how guide dogs help them to do so. Senior Minister of State for Ministry for Health & Ministry of Transport, Dr Lam Pin Mi, was present at the event.
The event was free and open to the public. Visitors could participate in a series of experiential activities simulating the daily life of a person with vision impairment. Talks on topics such as eye condition and guide dog demonstration were ongoing throughout the day as well.
This is the first time Guide Dogs Singapore is commemorating White Cane Day, and DPA sends its heartiest congratulations to an event well done!
