The coordinator for the disability office at the Office of the President (OP) Thomas Motingwa has revealed that people living with disabilities (PLWDs) will soon receive a monthly allowance of P300.

Motingwa said in an interview that this policy would commence on April 1 this year and they are going to be working around the clock with the help of the doctors and social workers to determine the condition of potential beneficiaries and make a determination on whether they really deserve to receive the allowance.

‘‘Some disabled people might think that they deserve to be given allowances, but with the help of the doctors and the social workers we will determine if we can grant an individual allowance. However we will be focusing more on those whose conditions do not allow them to work and require constant care, ’’he said.
