The donations were received by the Tuguegarao City Government thru the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA), and the regional focal for Persons with Disability Affairs.

To heighten the awareness on the need to dispose of properly the household healthcare wastes to prevent the spread of the virus, the DENR Regional Strategic Communication and Initiatives Group (RSCIG) also distributed paper fans on how to properly dispose face masks.

During the weeklong celebration, the RSCIG also distributed umbrellas and paper fans among clients who are PWDs and SCs.

This year’s theme, “Kalusugan at Kaunlaran ng Pilipinong May Kapansanan, Isulong Sa Gitna Ng Pandemya,” aims to highlight and strengthen the national efforts towards disability prevention and rehabilitation leading to the effective integration of Persons with Disabilities into the mainstream society. #
