Living with Global Developmental Delay and Chronic Lung Disease has undoubtedly presented Aleesya with numerous challenges throughout her life. Aleesya is also required to wear hearing aids on a daily basis. As part of our Care for the Disabled beneficiary, she and her family receive support from Global Ehsan Relief Singapore.
Her conditions may have slowed her physical and cognitive development, but they could never dampen her spirit or passion for creativity. Despite the hurdles she faces daily, Aleesya discovered solace and self-expression through art. Her journey as an artist began as a form of therapy, a way to communicate her emotions and thoughts when words were insufficient.
Recently, Aleesya’s artistic prowess was recognized on a bigger scale. Her artwork was chosen to be showcased at this year’s National Day Parade (NDP) tote bag design, a testament to her exceptional talent and resilience. It not only celebrates her artistic achievements but also serves as a symbol of her triumph over adversity.
Our team member Sri Shahadah had this to share: “We are intrigued by Aleesya's artistic talent and pleased to know that it was exclusively featured on the NDP tote bag this year. Her cheerful smile radiates through her drawings. It's a form of positive expression.”
More than just seeing the positive impact art has on Aleesya, the family also shared their heartfelt gratitude for the aid rendered to them by Global Ehsan Relief Singapore. It has helped to lessen the burden of buying expensive groceries. At the same time, our support has helped to boost Aleesya’s spirit.
Aleesya’s artistic journey has not only been a personal triumph but also a source of inspiration for her community. Her story reminds us all that even in the face of adversity, one can achieve greatness through determination, creativity, and unwavering passion.
Her journey reminds us that the human spirit can soar even in the face of daunting challenges, and her artistic flair has left an indelible mark on her community. We eagerly anticipate seeing where her talent and determination will lead her next, confident that she will continue to inspire us all.
With the rising cost of living in recent years, medical care and specialized aid for those living with mental or physical disabilities have caused families to struggle to afford even the most basic daily needs.
