Other church leaders and the Provincial Council on Disability Affairs Task Force Wheelchair witnessed this important event held at the LDS administration office in Green Meadows, Quezon City.
LDSC is engaged in purchasing wheelchairs and other orthopaedic mobility devices which they in turn distribute to physically disabled individuals in the Philippines who lack financial resources to acquire such medical devices.
However, LDSC needs logistical support in the implementation of the project; in terms of expediting delivery of the medical devices to beneficiaries; properly fitting the correct style and size of the devices to the recipient; teaching the beneficiaries of the proper use and maintenance of the devices; and preparing future trainers in the methods of distribution, fitting, use and maintenance of the medical devices.
Under the MOA, the Provincial Government agreed to engage in the project by distributing, fitting and training beneficiaries in the use and maintenance of the medical devices consistent with LDSC protocols. The Provincial Government also agreed to train future trainers from its own organizations following the LDSC protocols for the project.
“We thank LDSC for this project that will benefit our poor physically-disabled constituents,” Garcia said.
