Discounts for the Disabled
« on: August 26, 2009, 02:35:45 AM »
The Department of Trade and Industry and Department of Agriculture jointly issued the Administrative Order No. 2, series of 2008 otherwise known as the rules and regulations of the grant of special discounts to Persons with Disability (PWD) on the purchase of basic necessities and prime commodities.

"Since the enactment of Republic Act No. 9442 on April 2007, PWDs have prayed that this Magna Carta for Disabled Persons will be fully implemented.

"While the grant of special discounts on basic and prime commodities is just among the benefits granted to PWDs, they nevertheless congratulate the DA and DTI for the concrete and laudable response to section 32 of R.A. 9442."

Under the said rules and regulations, every person with disability shall enjoy a special discount of five percent of the regular retail price of basic necessities and prime commodities exclusively listed in the order. However, the total amount of said purchase shall not exceed the amount of P1,300 per calendar week without carry over of the unused amount.        

To avail of the discount, a PWD must present his or her ID issued by NCDA or by authorized office of Local Government Units where he or she resides. A purchase booklet shall be presented by the PWD to the retailer everytime a purchase is made.

Under the administrative order, retailers covered are those persons engaged in the business of selling consumer products directly to consumers, which shall include among others, supermarkets, grocery stores, convenience and mini-convenience stores and shops, excluding sari-sari stores with a capitalization of less than P100,000 public or private wet markets, talipapa and cooperative stores.

Furthermore, LGUs shall procure and distribute the purchase booklets to the persons with disability residing within their respective territorial jurisdiction.

Just like in the elderly sector, retailers shall provide a special express lane for persons with disability. Priority shall always be given to them in case there is no express lane.

Penal and administrative sanctions provided under R.A. 9442 shall be imposed against business establishments which violate this administrative order.

The Trade and Industry Regulatory Division of DTI-Bohol in coordination with the LGUs and PWD groups are currently conducting information dissemination as to the implementation of the law. - the Bohol Chronicle

"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."

This should be implemented. In fact this is covered in the United States Fair Treatment Act.

Mostly sad sa atua dili accessible sa mga disable ang malls ug mga government building. Diri sa U.S naa gyud nang wheelchair ramp.Bisan gani buntis diri naay special parking.
Paghoneymoon namo sa Disney world florida unang adlaw suroy murag naluto akong tiil sa kainit sa pavement naunsa ba wa naman ko kalakaw mao the next day until nahuman among bakasyon nag rent akong bana ug wheelchair. Pila ka adlaw suroy naulian naman unta ko pwede na makalakaw unya akong bana ing insist nga maayo kono magwheelchair nalang ko permi pa drama drama ug kiang kiang kay permi man ka front row sa mga shows,unya special jud ka diri basta disable,inay ikaw manggukod sa mga disney character ikaw nuon ilang duolon.

That is the beauty of the society here in the United States of America. The society is sensitive to disabled (mentally and physically). The United States has developed and established laws and freeways via legislature and through Civil Rights group to  guarantee equal rights to American Citizens that have been disabled; to have medical care and economic assistance in hard times.

And this should be maintained, imho. If one is a citizen, one should have access to economic aid in times of need.
