CALAPAN CITY, Oriental Mindoro – Ten Calapeño amputees on Wednesday received free prosthetic legs.

“I am happy to see that we have filled the missing part of your body,” City Mayor Marilou Flores-Morillo told the recipients after providing them free artificial legs.

The smiles on the faces of the beneficiaries show the sprouting of new hope for them and even their families.

According to them, their lives will be easier because they will gradually be able to stand on their own feet again.

The prosthetic legs were donated by A.L. Buenavista Enterprises Inc., in collaboration with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) MIMAROPA (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan).

The donation was also made possible because of the initiative of Mayor Morillo, through Persons With Disability Office (PDAO) head Benjamin Agua Jr..
