QUINAWAN, Bagac – During home visits conducted in this town by the Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO), represented by Ms. Christina May Ferma, focal person for Persons with Disabilities (PWDs), two clients were awarded mobility and assistive devices last Dec. 7.
“Eto yung palaging binabanggit ni Gov. Abet, na yung services ng provincial government ay maibaba sa mga areas na mahirap ang access ng mga residents due to geographic location,” said Ms. Ferma. “Binisita kasi dati ni Governor Abet yung Quinawan tapos may mga lumapit sa kanya at nag- express ng need for mobility and assistive devices kaya pinuntahan namin,” Ms. Ferma added.
The recipients of the devices were Mrs. Nieva Grecilla (wheelchair) and Mr. Ricardo Castro (crutch or “saklay”). “Nag-iwan na lang din kami ng dalawang saklay pa sa health center kung sakaling may mangailangan pa,” Ms. Ferma added.
