Eleven lucky persons with disability (PWDs) have been picked as the beneficiaries of Hakot Groceries program of Calapan City Councilor Mylene de Jesus.

This was the second iteration of said program and was held at Puregold Calapan last December 15.

De Jesus said that for this year, presidents of barangays have been given the opportunity to join the Hakot Groceries.

“Limitado lamang ang kasali rito dahil sa kakaunti ang sponsor, ang 11 PWDs ay naghakot ng grocery items sa loob lamang ng dalawang minuto sa halagang tatlong libong piso (P3,000.00),” the city government of Calapan said.

Vice Mayor Gil Ramirez, who served as one of the sponsors for the event, greeted the PWDs and their families a merry Christmas.

The Vice Mayor also lauded the advocacy of Councilor De Jesus for the PWDs.

“Gusto niyang ipaabot sa PWD ng lungsod ng Calapan ang kanilang pagkilala at pagmamahal sa mga ito sapagkat hindi niya tinitingnan ang isang bahagi lamang sa mga ito, manapa’y sinabi ni Vice Gil na hindi limitado ang buhay ng taong may kapansanan, ipinadama niya na ang kakulangang pisikal ng mga ito ay huwag ituring na kakulangan manapay gawing inspirasyon,” the city government said.

The Vice Mayor also hailed the PWDs as they serve as an inspiration for all.

“May mga hindi nakakapagsalita diyan, subalit aanhin ang deretsong magsalita kung ang sinasabi ay hindi kayang panindigan”, Vice Mayor Ramirez was quoted as saying.
