White Cane Community Day - 'Guide Dogs Can Lah!'

Description
The message behind our White Cane Community Day - 'Guide Dogs Can Lah!' event is to educate the public about visual impairment and guide dogs, and celebrate the abilities and successes of persons with visual impairment. While they may have challenges, they also have their ways of overcoming these challenges.

Some event highlights:
  • Experiential rooms which simulate how it might be like to have visual impairment and have to carry out daily tasks such as pouring water, going shopping and travelling.

  • Receive a free goodie bag worth $80 and be eligible to participate in our lucky draw (GRAND prize being an Hourglass watch valued at $1,030) upon completing all our experiential stations.

  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL) Museum to learn more about the various tools people with visual impairment use to help them out in their daily lives.

  • Children Play Area where kids can get creative and make guide dog clay figurines and bring them home.

  • Talks by eye care professionals and Orientation & Mobility trainers on visual impairment. There'll be one talk at 4.30pm that'll be in Chinese.

  • Blindfold walks where you'll get the chance to be blindfolded and with a sighted guide, travel down a route through Westgate.

  • Meet and greet with guide dog teams: Get to talk to our beneficiaries, both guide dog users and white cane users, at the event. Some will even be assisting the experiential stations and teaching you personally what they've learned in our training for them!
