To further strengthen the Republic Act 9442 or the Magna Carte for Disabled Persons, the Regional Council on Disability Affairs urges persons with disability (PWDs) to obtain their PWD identification card from their respective local government units (LGU).
The City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) implements different programs and services for PWDs, including peer counseling, basic care, and behavioral management in handling children with special needs, stimulation and therapeutic activity center, Tuloy Aral Walang Sagabal program, basic sign language training, women with disability empowerment, provision of assistive device, and conduct of PWD annual celebrations. Moreover, the city government also provides livelihood assistance to indigent PWDs.
To avail such services, PWD including those who have cognitive, developmental, intellectual, mental, physical, sensory (or some combination) impairments may apply for a PWD ID.
Due to the pandemic, PWDs are encouraged to register online through http://services.cagayandeoro.gov.ph/pwd/ or through the CSWDO.
