Retired teacher first to benefit from Kaye Revil wheelchair dole out
Remember Masbate Vice Governor Kaye Revil’s Facebook-based search for worthy wheelchair beneficiaries?
The lady politiko has finally found her first wheelchair recipient in Palanas, a fourth-class municipality.
“1st Recipient of Wheelchair through FB Announcement- Mr. Abarca of #Palanas, #Masbate #Philippines. He is a retired teacher. He suffered a stroke way back & couldn’t anymore walk,” Revil wrote on this upload Monday afternoon (September 12).
Last September 7, Revil asked Facebook users to “nominate candidates” for the distribution of free wheelchairs.
In the case of Mr. Abarca, it was apparently his son who commented on the Vice Governor’s announcement and bared their family’s wheelchair wish.
“The wheelchair he is using when we surprised visit to deliver the wheelchair was only borrowed from a Barangay Health Center. This time, he has his own,” Revil said of Abarca.
Expect more such announcements from the Vice Governor in the coming days.
