Rainbow Centre celebrates 25 years of helping the disabled

It has been a week of celebrations at the Rainbow Centre in Singapore.

Earlier this week, the centre hosted Prince William and his wife Catherine.

On Saturday, it celebrated 25 years of making a difference by helping the disabled.

Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong joined in the celebrations at the Yishun Park school.

After some warm-up exercises, Mr Lee went for a two-kilomentre walk with caregivers, supporters, children and staff of the Rainbow Centre.

The event was one of many to raise funds for the Early Intervention Programme for Infants and Young Children.

So far nearly S$700,000 has been collected.

Writing on his facebook page, PM Lee said he enjoyed his morning walk.

Mr Lee noted that the Rainbow Centre schools help children with multiple disabilities, cerebral palsy and autism develop their potential.

He added that the children stole the show and he’s touched by their warmth and resilience.
