THE Philip­pine Sports Com­mis­sion (PSC) turned over more than 90 sports equip­ment to the Per­sons with Dis­abil­ity Af­fairs Of­fice (PDAO) on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8, at Seda Cen­trio Ho­tel, Ca­gayan de Oro City.

A to­tal of 30 bas­ket­balls, 30 vol­ley­balls, 30 soc­cer balls, two shot puts and two dis­cuses were given to PDAO to be used for sports ac­tiv­i­ties and train­ing in the city.

“Ac­tu­ally, this is a part of our pro­gram to help them with the proper sports equip­ment na kani­lang ma­g­a­gamit with their sports ac­tiv­i­ties and train­ings. Gusto namin na magkaron ng ma­g­a­n­dang equip­ment yung mga PWD (per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties),” Arnold Agustin, the PSC com­mis­sioner, said.

Apart from the turn­ing over of equip­ment, Agustin said that pro­vid­ing lec­tures to the coaches in Ca­gayan de Oro is also a part of the PSC’s pro­gram.

“Aside from that, hindi lang equip­ment eh, nag pro­vide din kami ng lec­tures sa mga coaches ng proper way of train­ing the ath­letes,” Agustin said.

Maria Liza Cor­puz, head of PDAO, for her part, has ex­pressed grat­i­tude to PSC upon re­ceiv­ing the sports equip­ment.

“Maram­ing sala­mat sa la­hat, malak­ing tu­long para sa sec­tor ang mga equip­ment na natang­gap namin,” Cor­puz said.

She was also grate­ful for the sup­port given by the City Govern­ment to PWDs, say­ing that they were help­ful in em­pow­er­ing the PWDs of Ca­gayan de Oro.

“Ang City Govern­ment of Ca­gayan de Oro, grabe ang su­porta nila sa mga per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties. And of course the per­sons with dis­abil­i­ties dili sig­uro magig­ing gan­ito ka em­pow­ered ang mga PWD ng Ca­gayan de Oro kung wala kam­ing su­porta gal­ing sa at­ing LGU (lo­cal govern­ment unit),” Cor­puz said.

Arnold Agustin, the com­mis­sioner of the Philip­pine Sports Com­mis­sion, turns over the sports equip­ment to Ma. Liza Cor­puz, head of Per­sons with Dis­abil­ity Af­fairs Of­fice, on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8, in Seda Cen­trio Ho­tel, Ca­gayan de Oro City.
