Just recently, a total of 20 persons with disabilities received educational, livelihood financial assistance from the Iloilo City Government during the flag ceremony last Monday. Eleven students received Php 5,000 each and nine persons with disabilities received Php 5,000 each.
The amount given to students will serve as an allowance to support their education, meanwhile, the amount for persons with disabilities will help them with their livelihood.
“The livelihood and educational assistance for the Persons with Disabilities is one of my priorities, whereas each of our recipients receives five thousand pesos, which could greatly help in their financial needs. This assistance is essential in providing for their necessities as well as to their families. Persons with Disabilities also deserve respect, love, and belongingness here in our society,”in a Facebook post by Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas.
