The Muntinlupa City government provided services to nearly 200 homebound persons with disabilities (PWDs).
Under the “Oplan Bisita” program, the city government’s Persons With Disability Affairs Office (PDAO) assisted the PWDs in the first quarter of the year and gave them services from checkups to palliative care.

"As a city, we want to make sure that no one is left behind, because to achieve our vision of a smart city means that we are efficient in delivering services to the people so that no one is marginalized," said Mayor Ruffy Biazon.
The PDAO provided services such as physical assessment and therapy, occupational assessment and therapy, medical and palliative care check-up, and mental health counseling.
The PWDs who were visited by the team live in Barangays Alabang, Cupang, Buli, Bayanan, Tunasan, Poblacion, Sucat, and Putatan.
Assisting the PDAO in the initiative were the Social Services Department, Ospital ng Muntinlupa, City Health Office, INSPOKIDS Learning and Development Center, and Birthright Educators Foundation.
