PAMAG & RCUD SUPPORT TO THE NANTANGALAN SPECIAL EDUCATION CENTER

June 21, 2022 at 3:29 am Leave a comment

The Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan and PAMAG undertook a special project in response to a plea from Ms. Rosita Fernandez, the coordinator of Nantangalan Special Education Center, an elementary public school for special children in Pozorrubio, Pangasinan.  She was very concerned because these pupils often come to school hungry, pale and weak.  These pupils are non-verbal and have mental, intellectual or developmental disabilities.  Thirty-eight pupils attend the class while two special cases are home-based and visited by a teacher.  

In response to the request for assistance to meet the students basic needs, PAMAG and the Rotary Club of Uptown Dagupan distributed 40 packs with 2kilos of Rice, Milk packs, Noodles, Canned-goods, loaf bread and cheese spread and multivitamins.  The club members also provided some entertainment and snacks, as well as further assessment of their condition to plan the next nutrition program in the coming months. 

 We believe that people with disabilities need health care and health programs for the same reasons anyone else does-to stay well, active, and a part of the community. 

As one of their teachers said, ”They need our understanding, not our pity. They need to feel like they are part of our community.”
