PIA Press Release

PWD camp to inspire many camps

by RG Alama

Davao City (14 April) -- Kamp Pag-asa, an eight-year old city-run project for the young people with disabilities (PWDs) is willing to help in organizing many other special camps in different Local Government units.

Jose Allado, Kamp Pag-asa overall coordinator, said that there was a proposal to hold Kamp Pag-asa in different areas in Mindanao. But he said that Kamp Pag-asa is a unique Davao City project and that instead of holding it elsewhere they are willing to help in organizing other camps in different areas.

“Para hindi lang isa kundi marami pang camps,” Allado said. Kamp Pag-asa is a five-day camp for young people with disabilities and other special needs. It is manned wholly by volunteers, some of whom are former campers themselves.

Skills training, arts and crafts training, minilympics, socializing, activities that develop self-esteem and get-together with other campers are some of the many activities of the camp. “They discover that they can play, they can sing and that they can be useful.” Jose Allado said.

The 2007 Kamp Pag-Asa which is organized by the Davao City Council for the Welfare of Persons with Disabilities (PWDs) in coordination with government organizations and Non-Government Units will be held at the Brokenshire College grounds, this April 19-25.

The camp will have over 225 children coming from Davao and some from different parts of Mindanao with a delegation also coming from the National Capital Region. “ Batang May Kapansanan, Bahagi ng Lipunan” (child with disability, part of society) is this year’s Kamp theme

“I am inviting you to come to our camp, you are very much welcome to our camp.” Eric Paras a former camper of Kamp Pag-asa said, as he invited the public to the camp. (PIA XI) [top]
