Hosting the first ever Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) Summit the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) aims to provide a more responsive and comprehensive service.
The input and results of the discussions will be collated and synthesized, and eventually submitted as part of the DSWD’s partial recommendation for the Philippine Development Plan for 2018-2022.
DSWD Secretary Judy M. Taguiwalo said that the sector of PWDs is one of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged sectors in the country.
“The Department has programs and services which are available to them, but PWDs must also be given the opportunity to voice out what they think can help them best,” said Taguiwalo. (PNA)
