"Tatlong araw po tayong nagbahay-bahay katuwang ang ating CSWD (City Social Welfare Department) upang ihatid sa dalawampu’t siyam (29) na kababayan natin ang mga bagong wheelchairs pati walking devices (saklay o crutches) mula sa Operation Blessing Foundation (We have been going house-to-house for three days now together with the CSWD for the distribution of 29 brand new wheelchairs and walking devices from Operation Blessing Foundation)," Antipolo City spokesman Jun Ynares said.
