ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR DEAF, MUTE, BLIND AND THOSE WITH DOWN SYNDROME BE GIVEN EVERY YEAR —GARIN
Iloilo First District Representative Janette Garin wants additional financial assistance every year for people who are deaf, mute, blind and those with down syndrome.
Garin proposed such move to be implemented during Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair (BPSF) in Iloilo.
“Nararapat lamang po na bigyan ng dagdag na tulong ang ating mga kababayan na may kapansanan upang makatulong sa kanila,” Garin said.
BPSF is a project of President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. and House Speaker Martin Romualdez which aims to bring government services closer to the Filipino people.
The BPSF is the country’s biggest service caravan aimed at providing major government services to less fortunate Filipinos in various communities across the country, featuring the government’s flagship programs such as Kadiwa ng Pangulo, Passport on Wheels, Driver’s License registration/assistance, among others.
The lawmaker also hopes that the assistance be implemented nationwide.
“Malaking tulong po itong programang ito para mas mapadali ang pagkuha ng dokumento ng ating mga kababayan. Mas mabilis at madaling serbisyo ang handog ng administrasyon,” Garin ended.
