Recently in the progressive city of Muntinlupa, the City Government extended assistance to almost two hundred homebound persons with disabilities (PWDs) in the form of services under a local program, according to a Manila Bulletin news report.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
The Muntinlupa City government provided services to nearly 200 homebound persons with disabilities (PWDs).
Under the “Oplan Bisita” program, the city government’s Persons With Disability Affairs Office (PDAO) assisted the PWDs in the first quarter of the year and gave them services from checkups to palliative care.
“As a city, we want to make sure that no one is left behind, because to achieve our vision of a smart city means that we are efficient in delivering services to the people so that no one is marginalized,” said Mayor Ruffy Biazon.
The PDAO provided services such as physical assessment and therapy, occupational assessment and therapy, medical and palliative care check-up, and mental health counseling.
The PWDs who were visited by the team live in Barangays Alabang, Cupang, Buli, Bayanan, Tunasan, Poblacion, Sucat, and Putatan.
