SINGAPORE: NTUC FairPrice Foundation has set aside S$1 million to provide retrofitted vans for voluntary welfare organisations (VWOs).
The initiative was launched on Tuesday, in conjunction with the opening of the newly-renovated FairPrice outlet in Bukit Merah.
Club Rainbow will be receiving a van that is specifically catered for children with mobility difficulties.
Other VWOs receiving the retrofitted vans include Singapore Disability Sports Council, TP Healthcare, and Food from the Heart.
Rajakanth, the executive director of Club Rainbow, said: "This van will be used specifically to transport kids with physical disabilities who suffer from things like spina bifida, muscular dystrophy.
“This van is customised with a lifter, so I think that will help with the mobility issues with these children to and from tuition classes, school, as well as hospital appointments.”
