The saying “those who have less, give more” was no more than a strong belief of Hon. Librado C. Navarro. Until, he encouraged the group of PWD’s of this city to hold a certain occasion that will not only prove his belief right, but at the same time will enable the PWDs to change their current image as assistance-needing people.

Hon. Mayor Librado C. Navarro spearheaded the creation of a steering committee for events, chaired by the City Administrator Mr. Charlito Lerog, and in association with the Persons with Disability Affairs Office, through the office head Joselito Buenaflor, a fund raising activity which was held December 6, 2014. The “Gasa: A Theatrical Performance Featuring the Persons with Disability of Bislig City” was a very successful event with the full support and cooperation of various local and national government agencies, BCCWSP, GOs/ NGOs and POs.

According to the report of the PDAO Head, Joselito Buenaflor, these PWDs thru their fund raising activity “GASA” were able to raise a total amount of Php 151, 290.00 and were also able to give financial assistance to four livelihood projects, namely: Candle Making at Bgy. Cumawas with the amount of Php 5,000; Catering by the Deaf Association at Bgy. Mangagoy amounting to Php 10,000; Woodcraft and Furniture of Bgy. Kahayag and Bgy. Tabon at the amount of Php 20,000; lastly, Hog Raising at Bgy. San Fernando at Php 5,000. A total of 43 adult PWDs availed and benefited financial assistance from the proceeds of this variety show of the differently-abled persons.

Aside from assisting certain livelihood projects, the PDAO was also able to support the academe group by giving learning materials to Mangagoy SPED Elementary School, amounting to Php 21,000;

Mangagoy Resource Center at Php 5,000; Tabon SPED High School at Php 10,000; And for Brgy. San Vicente at Php 5,000. A total of 95 PWD children were given the opportunity of new learning instruments for a brighter future. They also supported the constructions of the buildings of the Caramcam Elementary School and Mabog Elementary School with the total assistance of Php 10,000 each school, and at the same time benefiting 29 PWD children.

The said variety show has been an effective way of showcasing the talents of the differently-abled persons and at the same time, enabling them to raise funds not only for themselves but for the privileged and less privileged PWDs alike. The image of the PWDs as the people to be helped out by the government and the private sector was eradicated; instead they became gift-givers to those who are in need. They were once known as “disabled persons”, now they are “differently-abled” people whose physical abilities and capabilities maybe limited up to certain point – some maybe unable to talk, hear, see, walk, and even mentally challenged– but were able to prove that having less does not hinder them from giving more. Help is not what they seek; instead it is what they give.

After the event, Mayor Navarro has recognized the efforts of all Bislig’s differently-abled persons in making the show possible and he was proud to say that the PWDs were never a burden; instead they are strong contributors to the development and progress of Bislig City.
