spearhead the 34th National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation
(NDPR) Week celebration, as chaired by the Department of Labor and

In our continuing quest for equitable progress, the Filipino people are our
most indispensable resource, and their welfare is our top priority. We take
pride in the accomplishments of our persons with disabilities and their
contributions to our nation-building agenda. They are our paragons of
strength and determination, resilient and steadfast in fulfilling their great
potential among the movers of our nation.

May this occasion bring forth a stronger resolve in addressing the issues
concerning your sector. Rest assured that we in government remain
committed to safeguarding and promoting the interests of all our people, chief
among  these being the right to work in any office or industry setting and
reducing the index of marginalization. Let us work together to secure a just
society, where no one is left behind and every hardworking citizen is given
the opportunity to realize his dreams.
