Eighty students at Woodlands Garden School, a MINDS Special Education School that serves the learning needs of children with intellectual disabilities, were joyfully blessed by Project Happy Feet.
On 26 May 2015, three members from our Outreach team visited the school and gave each child a brand new pair of school shoes and socks for the new semester. Besides handing the gifts to the children personally, they also helped the pupils try on their new shoes to ensure proper fitting. The children were pleasantly surprised and delighted by the gifts of love on a school day.
Christmas came early for 80 children at Woodlands Garden School. Helping the children try on their new shoes at the school’s atrium.
These students, who are on the Financial Assistance Scheme, come from underprivileged families that are unable to suitably care for children with special needs. Project Happy Feet was particularly pivotal in showing care and love for the children as many of them had never received a gift or present!
Cheah Tse Boon, 35, a full-time staff in our Outreach Ministry, felt honoured and happy to be part of this meaningful project. “It’s really a very practical way to meet their needs. I hope this initiative will continue for many years to come and we can extend this to more MINDS schools.”
