Cassandra and Esme has been an inspiration to our society, educating the public about guide dogs throughout the years. We have set up this campaign to be able to support her with funds for a new guide dog, as her fur-angel for the past 7 years is retiring soon.
Cassandra Chiu is a Singaporean Psychotherapist, and Social Advocate who has been honored with the World Economic Forum Young Global Leader, Social Innovation Park Fellow, and The Singapore Woman Award.
She is the first woman to use a Guide Dog in Singapore, and best known for her advocacy when the social environment was not quite ready.She changed the landscape here towards greater acceptance towards service dogs and persons with disabilities.
With her trusted Guide Dog, Esme by her side, Cassandra has gone on to achieve so much, and has touched the lives of many, both locally and internationally. Her vision as a person living with blindness is to change what it means to be disabled in Asia for the individual, the community and society at large.
"I had always believed that a guide dog provides a blind individual more independence, confidence and safety in moving around. Esme has made an immeasurable difference to me. My independence, safety, confidence and dignity which were robbed from me at the age of eight are completely restored now. With a guide dog, I no longer need to be limited by my disability and I can have equal mobility as a sighted person."
