Mr. Richard Larupay of Barangay Tina and Mr. Luciano Angao of Barangay San Antonio, both with visual disabilities, can soon start their very own vulcanizing businesses.
The Rotaract Club of Talakudong (RAC-Talakudong) turned over the vulcanizing tools and equipment in time for the celebration of the World Rotaract Week on March 12, 2015. Aside from tools and equipment, each beneficiary received twelve kilos of rice.
Larupay and Angao were the beneficiaries of RAC-Talakudong’s fund-raising event dubbed Rotarock: Battle of the Bands for Cause on December 2014.
The beneficiaries were chosen through the help of the City Disability Affairs Committee headed by Mayor Lina O. Montilla. The Committee will also assist RAC-Talakudong in monitoring the status of beneficiaries.
“PWDs have potentials like all of us. They must be empowered to help their families and their communities,” said RAC-Talakudong President Jezereel Billano.
