Stafford Edison International and Dynamic PR proudly support the Guide Dogs Association of the Blind in Singapore. Unlike many countries where there is a wide acceptance of these magnificent working dogs, there is currently only one guide dog in Singapore - Kendra (who very cleverly has her own facebook page under Kendra Kua). Singapore has an estimated population of 12,000 blind people although only 3,000 are currently registered. The Association hopes to bring in two more puppies for beneficiaries in July and eventually to train puppies in Singapore. There is much to be done both in raising funds as they are a charitable organization - as well as to gain much needed awareness and acceptance of this concept and educate the public in Singapore. A guide dog makes an enormous difference to a blind person's life giving them confidence and the ability to go out when they want rather than just if they have to - and also makes them more socially integrated as many people will approach a blind person to say hello to the dog initially.
