Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) have received wide attention being that they make up a social group that is vulnerable to societal discriminations, which add to their despairing experiences. So many dreams are cut short when one develops a physical disability. For some, education becomes a forgone issue, getting married turns to a mirage, engaging in economic activities becomes seemingly impossible and withdrawal from socialization becomes the norm.
U-TOLF in taking up projects that will improve the lives of the disadvantaged and indigent in our communities has also engaged in caring for these physically challenged ones in addition to her many undertakings.
At different U-TOLF outreaches in the state, wheelchairs have been distributed to identified indigent handicapped persons. Scholarship have also been awarded to others who are of school age, as well as free health insurance.
