Tagalog News: Persons with Disability sa Caraga region tinipon para sa isang hands-on training kung paano eproseso ang pagparehistro ng PWDs online

BUTUAN CITY, Hulyo 29 (PIA) - Masayang dinaluhan ng mga Persons with Disability (PWDs) sa probinsya ng Agusan del Norte ang dalawang araw na Hands-on Training on the Utilization of Philippine Registry for Persons with Disability na ginanap dito sa lungsod ng Butuan.

Nasa mahigit 50 na mga PWDs ang naimbitahan sa nasabing hands-on training na pinangunahan ng Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office (PSWDO) sa nasabing probinsya.

Ayon kay Ana Flerida Labanon, regional program coordinator ng National Council on Disability Affairs (NCDA), layon ng nasabing training ay ang turuan at maibahagi sa mga PWDs ang tamang proseso ng pagrehistro online.

Dagdag pa ni Labanon, makakatulong ang hands-on training upang maseguradong tama ang datus o impormasyon na mailalagay sa database ng mga persons with disability hindi lamang sa probinysa ng Agusan del Norte, kundi pati na sa ibang probinsya ng Caraga region.

Magagamit rin umano ito ng gobyerno sa pagtukoy sa mga kinakailangang programa na makakatugon sa mga kinakaharap ng PWDs at maibigay ang akmang serbisyo para sa kanila.

Ipinahayag naman ni Mylyn Gunio, ang Provincial Federation of PWDs president sa Agusan del Norte, na lubos ang kanilang kasiyahan na patuloy na tumutulong ang gobyerno sa tulad nilang may kapansanan. Positibo umano sila na mga PWDs na sa pamamagitan ng online registration, mas marami pang PWDs ang maisali sa database at makabenipisyo sa mga programa at serbisyo ng pamahalaan.

Samantala, kasama rin sa naging hands-on training ang diskusyon sa mga ipinapatupad na mga karapatan at benepisyo ng mga PWDs. (JPG/PIA-Caraga)
