Quezon City execs start dialogue with PWDs

MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City authorities held a dialogue Thursday with persons with disability (PWDs) to help raise the level of awareness on national laws and local ordinances regarding the rights of the handicapped especially those covered by the Accessibility Law.

Councilor Allan Benedict Reyes of the city’s third district said that a first batch of about 100 PWDs from his area attended the consultative meeting which was organized in partnership with office of Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte.

Reyes said the meeting is a continuing effort of the city government to improve the living conditions of the physically handicapped.

“The goal is to provide assistance to the city’s PWD in the long run not only in the form of financial aid but also in giving them sources of livelihood which will tide them for longer periods of time,’’ he said. (Chito A. Chavez)
