Reading telephone book, newspaper, watching television, recognising new Singapore’s coins, even seeing faces, we all can do it without a second thought; can you imagine how you can doing all these tasks if you are visually impaired? Or blind?

“Adopt a dolphin” is a programme between SAVH and Herbal Pharm to raise fund in supporting SAVH to better serve for the welfare of visually handicapped community.

The adoption fee for each dolphin plush toy is S$5, and you can rest assured that the full sum you contribute will go towards the Singapore Association of Visually Handicapped (SAVH) – Herbal Pharm will absorb all cost of the plush toy. Simply add our dolphin to your shopping list, and we’ll have it delivered along with your health and grooming essentials.

To help visually impaired to help themselves.

As the population of older people continues to accelerate, the number of people experiencing vision loss will continue to increase. And as the population of people experiencing diabetes increases, consequent increases will occur in diabetic retinopathy and other eye diseases.

SAVH, founded in 1951, is a voluntary welfare organization that is affiliated to the National Council of Social Service, and is an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC). The aim of SAVH is to help the visually impaired to help themselves through assisting them to acquire new skills. Through this, the visually impaired are able to become self-reliant and independent, thus facilitating their entry back into the society.


Herbal Pharm always believe in giving back to society and helping those who are in needs. This dolphin represents Herbal Pharm commitment to care about society; it’s also a symbol of optimism, love, and encouragement to those who visually impaired.

Your support in this “Adopt-A-Dolphin” programme is essential to help SAVH raise fund and better serve visually handicapped community. Your donation can help a person who is blind learn to travel using a white cane. Your donation can help a person with low vision learn how to read independently using a specialized magnifier. Your donation is the gift of independence for someone with vision loss.

With your help, SAVH continues to make a difference in the lives of people with vision loss. Your donations make it possible for us to provide programs and services that help people continue to lead active, independent lives. We couldn’t do it without you. It also goes without saying that SAVH as a community benefit organization could not provide all of the programs and services it does without financial support from our friends.

SAVH and Herbal Pharm Thank You for Your Supports!!
