Office of Rep. Pulong Duterte distributes wheelchairs for senior citizens in Davao City
The recipient barangays were Catalunan Grande, Catalunan Pequeño, 5-A, Matina Aplaya, Dumoy, Ma-a, and Magtuod, all situated in the First District. Catalunan Grande barangay councilor Nicolasa Morata said there were senior citizens who earlier requested a wheelchair, as some are having difficulty walking because of their respective health conditions. “Gisabutan pa namo sa barangay karon ang proseso sa pag distribute aning wheelchairs. Naay lima among ibilin sa barangay para magamit sa vaccination sites,” Morata said. Morata also said they have to assess the senior citizens who are really in need of wheelchairs. There are 3,857 senior citizens in Catalunan Grande, she added.
