Marami po ang nagtatanong sa amin kung papaano makakakuha ng PWD ID. Ito po ang unang certification na kailangan, ang Certification on Disability (i-click lang po para i download). Bukod pa po sa certification na ito, kalangan ninyo ng kahit alin sa mga sumusunod:
Ginawa po namin ang update na ito upang malaman ng marami na mas mabilis na paraan ito upang makakuha ng PWD ID kaysa sa magdala kayo ng clinical abstract kung saan minsan mas nagtatagal ang pagkuha ng PWD ID.
I-download lang ang form at papirmahan sa inyong doktor bago isumite sa PDAO.
Many Pinoys with disabilities are already burdened with having to take so much maintenance medication that their livers and kidneys become weaker over time. If the need arises, later in life, for surgery or any invasive procedure, the PWD’s body will not heal as fast. Possibly, the PWD patient may not even benefit from the surgery as the healing process may be compromised. Continue reading …
Did you know that it is improper to call or refer to a human being with sex developmental disorders as a “hermaphrodite”? The proper term is “intersex” or a person whose body does not fit in the regular medical category of being either male of female. They are “i” in LGBTI.

It was a good run. Last January of 2017, we got good news that we will have a weekly slot on DZRB 738 AM Radyo Pilipinas 1 which was later made twice a week, Saturday and Sunday. The PWDPhil Hour paved the way for the incorporation of what is now a full-fledged NGO known as the Organization for Pinoys with Disabilities Inc. Based in Angono, Rizal, this new NGO is struggling to help its near 10,000 members into becoming aware of their rights and privileges as PWDs as well as whatever government programs and other benefits made available through existing laws.
While we are sad to have left radio, we are happy to announce that we are pursuing other channels to reach our audiences. We are working on something in the digital space that will allow us to help PWDs improve their quality of life and to make more noise so that employers will notice how advantageous it is for them to hire PWDs.
This is not end but a new beginning for our cause. We will more reachable, more accessible and more than willing to help those who cannot help themselves.
If there is any organization our there who wants to donate to our cause, we would greatly appreciate it. As of today, we give free disability awareness and sensibility seminars to those who want to tap into PWDs as part of their clientèle. Any organization with front-facing crew can benefit from our seminars. All you need to do is leave us a comment with your contact information and we will call you back for the arrangements.
To those who have supported us on radio, thank you very much and more power to you!
