ANGELES CITY — The city government here continues to provide wheelchairs as assistance to senior citizens and differently-abled individuals.
To date, a total of 191 wheelchairs have been handed over to the beneficiaries, of which 116 are senior citizens and 75 are differently-abled individuals.
Alicia Maniago-Zamora, sister of Noel Maniago who suffered a stroke patient and wheelchair recipient, expressed how grateful they are for the assistance provided by Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr.
“Nagpapasalamat kami, kaming pamilya ni Noel, mga kapatid namin, kasama mga bayaw namin, mga pamangkin niya, lahat ng nagmamahal sa kanya. Sana hindi sila magsawang tumulong sa mga nangangailangan,” she remarked.
The wheelchair assistance program is spearheaded by the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), led by Edna Duaso.
