Catbalogan supports national disability prevention and rehabilitation week

Celebrating the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week, Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan made a prior visit to Catbalogan SPED Center, the lone educational facility in the 2nd District, Samar Province that caters to persons with disabilities as accredited by the National Council on Disability Affairs.

The city government fully supports the said institution through a regular scholarship program to the beneficiaries enrolled and as assisted by the City Social Welfare and Development Office.

Between July 17 – 23, 2017 is this year’s National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week with its theme “Karapatan at Prebilihiyo ng Maykapansanan: Isakatuparan at Ipaglaban!”, which calls for the full implementation of laws protecting PWDs in order for them to live meaningful lives and as partners of nation-building.
