P2,000 monthly subsidy proposed for parents of kids with disabilities

QUEZON CITY - Lawmakers led by Davao City First Congressional District Representative Paolo Duterte have pushed for the swift approval of a measure that aims to grant parents of children with disabilities (CWDs) a P2,000 monthly subsidy from the government.

House Bill 6743 filed by Duterte, Benguet Rep. Eric Yap, and ACT-CIS Partylist Reps. Edvic Yap and Jeffrey Soriano outlines the requirements for parents of disabled children to qualify for the subsidy and mandates the creation of a database of all CWDs to be able to effectively implement this proposed law.

Citing a study by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) done in coordination with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), the bill’s authors pointed out that expenses for raising a CWD is 40 to 80 percent higher than that for other kids without disabilities.
