Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) from around the province gathered at SM City Consolacion for the culminating activity of the PWD month of 2013 last July 31.
With the theme, PWD Power!!!, the event aimed to empower and recognize the unique abilities and talents of PWDs. In his welcome address, PWD Federation President in Cebu, Mr. Jerry Ursaiz, expressed his heartfelt gratitude for the support of the Cebu Provincial Government for the conduct of the activity.
Vice Governor Agnes A. Magpale, Committee on PWD, Chairman Arleigh C. Sitoy (6th District Sangguniang Panlalawigan Member) and distinguished guests, Mr. Michael Pilago and Mrs. Evelyn Sinajon were among those who graced the event together with the participating PWDs from entire the province.
In her message, Magpale hoped that PWDs be not only remembered and recognized during the month of July but all throughout the year.
Every month of July, the Cebu Provincial Government is one with the PWDs from the entire province in celebrating and acknowledging their contributions to society.
Meanwhile, winners from the recently concluded PWDs Got Talent 2013 were also present in the event displaying their talents in singing and dancing during their intermission numbers in between the program. (Rell P. Unabia, USJ-R Masscom Intern)
