- The Disabled People's Association Singapore
"People often close their ears to advice but open their eyes to examples."
It was with the wisdom of such an adage that the disabled people around the world finally, united in strength and committed in purpose, decided to set up an example of a self-help organisation of the disabled, by the disabled and for the disabled, so as to achieve a "VOICE OF OUR OWN" - "VOX NOSTRA".
To this purpose, a small group of disabled people in Singapore, with the help of about 100 volunteers, became engaged in a battle against time, obstacles, lack of funds, to mention only a few problems...to bring to fruition an idea fathered in Winnipeg, Canada some months earlier in 1980 by 12 people and 300 supporters with disability.
In pride and not immodesty, we claim the Disabled Peoples' International by right and place of birth as a citizen of our beloved country.
