KMKNVI to celebrate NDPR week
The Kapisanan ng mga may Kapansanan ng Nueva Vizcaya (KMKNVI) will celebrate 41st the National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation (NDPR) week from July 17 to 23, 2019 with the theme, “Lokal na Pamahalan: Kabalikat sa Pagtupad ng Karapatan ng mga taong may Kapansanan.”
The celebration is in support with Proclamation No. 361 signed by President Joseph E. Estrada, declaring every third week of July as NDPR week in honor of our revolutionary hero Apolinario Mabini.
The proclamation aims to stimulate public awareness on the problems among PWDs and encourage everyone to take active responsibility to uplift the economic and social conditions of the PWDs in our society.
According to Marlon A. Guzman, focal person on Person with Disability (PWD) affairs, the celebration will start with a symposium on new laws and issuances related to PWD rights and privileges on July 17 and Disaster Emergency Preparedness Training for PWDs on July 18-19.
A family day with Learners with Special Educational Needs (LSENs) on July 22, Basketball on Wheels and PWD Got Talent on July 23.
All government agencies and the media are expected to support and cooperate in this undertaking said Guzman in an interview. #krizel
