    For so long battle cry of PWDs are their privileges, like the 20% discount in medicines. What is the use of distributing PWD ID, where such it is not being honored by established pharmacies here in Borongan, Eastern Samar and Tacloban, Leyte, to name with the Mercury Drug and Rose Pharmacy. On the part of the said pharmacies, they could not give discounts not unless their are resolution, order or whatsoever coming from Department of Health. Hey people… wake up!!! Think of what you are fighting for! This is for marginalized sector, what if one of you or your family become PWDs, is that the time you will act for this????

    dito rin po sa Rosales,Pangasinan, mercury,Snt.Joseph, other drug stores here, not giving the 20% discount. pls. ask the FGA to issue a directive to all drug stores all over the country.I also suggest you provide a copy of the said directive to all PDAO in the municipal level. or post here in our website.

    Kami po dito sa Rosales, Pangasinan ay nagsisimula pa lang po kaming magorganisa. itanong ko lang po kong kailangan po ba kaming magpa register sa Security on Exchange Comm.?

    pls,.guide us.
