The launch of this project is a significant step towards improving the lives of persons with disabilities in Las Piñas. With the support of the local government and various organizations, the city is making strides towards creating a more accessible and inclusive community.

The City Social Welfare Development Office and its partners are to be commended for their efforts in bringing this project to fruition, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the lives of those with disabilities.
