PWDPhil is Back! And you will love us even more

PWDPhil is back online! It’s good to be back after a long absence. No we never left. We were just making things better for our PWD brothers and sisters. So what we done in  the past few months?

Radio show – Yes actually have our radio show called “the PWDPhil Hour”in the new Radyo Pilipinas, formerly Radyo ng Bayan DZRB 738 KHz AM. Hosts Arpee Lazaro and Edsel Lorete were joined by so many people on the air and all kinds of things were discussed. Many people tuned in asking all kinds of questions.

There has been a huge improvement. We are now TWICE A WEEK over Radyo Pilipinas. Now that we have been given more airtime, we have decided to spruce up the website and get more bandwidth in anticipation of the increased readership and Internet traffic. Look at this website closely because we will soon change it into a magazine type of a website that will include all the things you want to know about the rights, benefits and laws about PWDs, including the issues that affect our community.

In the new website we will post all our radio show episodes for you to watch and listen at your leisure. Our new email is info@pwdphil.com

Our NGO – yes, we are in the final stages of completing our documents so we can soon become a legal entity able to accept donations in both cash and in kind. We will soon partner with various groups and government agencies to bring you more benefits, opportunities and information to empower you to help yourself, assert yourself and become a productive citizen.

A launch date – we have something cooking in the kitchen, a launch event! Finally an event where we can meet and talk and exchange ideas. We project this to happen sometime in late July or early August. No matter if it is hungry ghost month, we’re not Chinese, nor are we here to make money. We are not a business but an advocacy promoted by several volunteers and patrons who have big big hearts to help out with the community. We are in this together and we will go the distance with you.

Welcome to PWDPhil.com!

Welcome to the new PWDPhil.com  Our goals are the following:

  1. Spread awareness for the plight of Persons with Disabilities (PWD) in the Philippines
  2. Disseminate information on the latest news and trends affecting the PWDs
  3. Gain public support for the implementation of existing government laws and mandates established by the current and previous administrations for the protection of the PWD’s rights and privileges
  4. Give the Pinoy PWD a voice in cyberspace. A forum where PWDs and their supporters can freely exchange ideas, complaints and even suggestions.
  5. Initiate measures that will assist in improving the PWD’s quality of life by keeping them informed of scholarships, job opportunities and seminars held through the country exclusively for their benefit.

We are not affiliated with any political party, nor with any existing organization. This website is made possible through the collaboration of civic-minded professionals and volunteers who have pledged their time and efforts to the protection of the welfare of the Pinoy PWD.  If you want to share a suggestion, donate clothes or instruments that will improve the quality of life of a PWD, you may contact us by emailing Arpee@PWDPhil.com  or Russel@PWDPhil.com

We need all the help we can get.
