A Palawan board member wants the provincial government to prioritize the persons with disabilities by providing them livelihood assistance program.

“Isang resolusyon na iniakda ni Board Member Winston Arzaga ang pinagtibay sa ika-68 sesyon ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan na humihiling kay Gobernador Jose Chaves Alvarez na bigyang prayoridad ang mga indibiduwal na may kapansanan sa pagbibigay ng tulong pangkabuhayan,” Palawan provincial government said.

The purpose of the resolution is to empower PWDs and give them a means to help provide for their families. It also seeks to make PWDs be a productive member of the society.

“Matatandaan na isa sa pangunahing programa sa ilalim ng IHELP development agenda ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ay ang pagbibigay ng tulong pangkabuhayan sa mga organisasyon o mga indibidwal na walang sapat na kakayanan,” the Palawan government said.

Other resolutions discussed during the session were assistance for fishermen organizations, free social services to fishermen and farmers during Farmers’ at Fisherfolks’ Month every May, among others.
