ASKI Foundation awards 2 more wheelchairs
Life will not be quite stationary anymore for a teenager and a woman of Barangay San Isidro, Laur, Nueva Ecija. They are both physically challenged.

Ronaldo Bolisay, 17 years old and Jonalyn Mariano, 27 years old, were both awarded with brand new wheelchair through the effort of ASKI Foundation Community Development Unit last May 22.

Bolisay, son of Rodolfo and Rosemarie, has not been able to walk for years due to childhood accident. The teenagerís father used to weave bamboo splits for income while his mother is an overseas Filipino worker in Saudi Arabia that earns just enough for their basic daily needs.

Asked what he feels upon receiving his wheelchair, Ronaldo expressed his feelings by showing a big smile on his face. His happiness also energized him to ask his father to enroll him in school as Grade I student.

On the other hand, Marianoís life has been limited by her disability. Having 12 children, Jonalynís parents were not able to afford a wheelchair for their daughter so they were very thankful for the gift.

The new wheelchairs were donated by Rotary Club of Paranaque. It was the initiative of Marie Ciello Margate, staff from Resource Mobilization & Communications Department of ASKI who coordinated the partnership between Rotary and ASKI. COMDEV Unit organized the said awarding of wheelchairs led by ASKI Foundation Director Babylyn F. Dela Cruz.

The outreach program of ASKI Foundation-COMDEV Unit has been instrumental in helping persons with disability at Brgy. San Isidro. Previously, the unit already granted three wheelchairs to chosen beneficiaries. (Mark Lyndon F. Antaran)
