“Kinikilala ng pamahalaan ang kahalagahan at ambag ng bawat mamamayan sa pag-inog ng ating lipunan. Bawat isa sa atin, kasama kayong PWDs, ay may magagawang kabutihan para sa ating bayan. Bawat isa sa atin ay mahalaga. (The government recognizes the importance and contribution of each citizen to the progress of our society. Each one of us, including you PWDs, can do something good for our country. Each of us is important),” Dumlao said to the CFW for PWD recipients.

Dumlao emphasized that the government will continue to guide, help and care for everyone because every life is important to DSWD.
