CLARK FREEPORT – Clark Development Corporation (CDC) recently donated various assistive devices to the members of the Persons with Disability Affairs Office of Angeles City (PDAO – AC).

The donations include 18 assistive devices such as wheelchairs and crutches. These materials will help to enable them to carry out everyday tasks and actively engage in community life.

In her speech, Vital thanked the CDC for its continuous support to their sector and organization.

“Lubos po kaming nagagalak sa tulong at sa pagbibigay pansin sa aming sector. Ilang years narin po yan na laging nabibigyan ng CDC ng mga assistive devices ang PDAO Angeles City. Malaking tulong po sa amin ang mga assistive devices na nanggagaling po sainyo (CDC), lalo napo para sa mga bata. Gusto po naming maipamulat na kahit may kapansanan kami kailangan makisalamuha rin po sa iba. Alam po naming malaking tulong itong mga assistive devices na ito para sa amin. Maraming maraming salamat po,” she said.

Meanwhile, Gaerlan encouraged the members of PDAO-AC to maintain a positive outlook in life despite the challenges that they face every day. He said that the CDC hopes to uplift their lives through the various Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs of the state-owned firm.

“Ito po ay kasama sa programa ng CDC na kahit papano ay makatulong tayo sa mga physically challenged individuals. Nandito tayo ngayon at nagtutulong tulong. Kung ano man ang nakakayanan ng CDC na maitulong sa ating mga kababayan na may kapansanan, sana makapagpa improve ito sa inyong mga nararamdaman. Through our help, ninanais namin na maibsan ang inyong  paghihirap kahit konti,” he added.
