Last December 5 and 6, I was given the opportunity to meet and speak before the Persons with Disability (on the 5th) and the Elderly or senior citizens (on the 6th) in the province of Agusan del Norte. The two events were organized by the Provincial office of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (PSWD).
I was tasked to speak on the topic: Insecurity and Vulnerability as Opportunities for Growth during the PWD gathering. And I spoke about Coping and Managing Loneliness for the Seniors’ event.
Our PWDs and elderly in the province were pretty energetic during our time together and they eagerly participated in a couple of interactive portions in my sessions with them. It was great to be with them along with the PSWD staff and the team from the Department of Health (DOH) local office which provided free vaccination to our PWDs and senior citizens.
My speaking sessions took place during the morning. Afterwards, lunch was served and our PWDs and Seniors had some time of fun and fellowship during the rest of the afternoon.
On the 6th, I also had the chance to meet for the first time one of Agusan del Norte’s incumbent Board Member, Ms. Elizabeth Marie Calo who was very warm and welcoming to everyone in the event. Nice meeting you, Ma’am! 🙂
Thank you, PSWD, for the invitation. Looking forward to be of service to you again!
