Disabled but Sia is unstoppable
With mother’s day around the corner we wanted to share a touching story about a mother who never gave up on her children despite all the challenges and how it inspired her daughter to action!
“Despite having five out of seven children born with muscular dystrophy, housewife Tey Hong Eng never gave up on them.
People told Tey to marry someone else and start a new life but she refused to abandon her disabled children.
It was Tey’s resilient spirit and compassion that inspired her daughter – Sia Siew Chin – to dedicate her life to helping people with disability to live independently.”
Sia has now set up a centre called the Beautiful Gate Foundation For The Disabled where she trains people with disabilities to be independent and gain enough confidence to be part of society.
