“HOW CAN PWDs HELP IN RESPONDING TO EMERGENCIES? — the question aimed at in this 3-day activity of the HELP Learning Center Foundation, Inc. and LGU- Naga on Disability-Inclusive Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM),” said the city government.

“Believing that Persons With Disabilities (PWD) sector is much more than a receiving end of government help and programs, PWDs who participated in the activity shared their desire to be of help and become active participants in responding to emergencies— raising their views in the existing DRRM programs and laying points that can be considered to make disaster preparedness, plans and operations of LGUs more inclusive for PWDs and PWD-responders to be,” it added.
