It was a privilege in getting the children and their families one step closer knowing about Guide Dog Singapore Ltd and the visually-impaired. On 28th March 2018, we invited Mr Dennis, Mr Hongsen and their lovely Guide Dogs, Melba and Claire. We had parents who helped to share photos of the session to create awareness. The school also donated to Guide Dog Singapore Ltd.
Guide dogs are not technically pets; they are more than a mobility aid, providing their handlers with companionship and increasing their handlers’ confidence and independence.
So let’s be kinder to guide dogs and their beneficiary humans and create awareness to help educate the society that guide dogs are allowed indoors, on public transport, and even in food establishments.
