It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our Vice President, Mdm Joan Heng Aik Hiah.

She was tireless in her efforts in working for a better quality of life for those living with the condition in our society.

We owe her a huge debt of gratitude for what she has helped us accomplish during her tenure, and extend our deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.

May her soul rest in eternal peace.
