(SUSG-RLC) in collaboration with Beta Sigma, Leyte-Samar Sillimanites, Silliman Junior Business Executives, and Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants gave gifts to the 40 persons with disabilities (PWDs) last Aug. 26 at the Student Lounge 2 of Oriental Hall.
This event was part of the 11-day sharing of the SUSG, an annual event conducted during Hibalag as a means to reach out to the bigger circle – the community.
Rev. Mark B. Augusto, minister for student and campus chaplaincy, gave a reflection on Jesus’ miracles which emphasized that out of around 30 miracles of Jesus, 25 of those were done on PWDs.
He added that the life of a PWD is not easy because of certain limitations.
“Maayo gud ni siya nga gibuhat sa mga estudyante sa Silliman na usa mi sa inyong nahinumduman na persons with disabilities,” Aladdin Rosales, the current president of the PWDs said.
Rosales also emphasized how happy they were to be invited in the university.
Methushiela Flores and Aprille Juanillo, SUSG-RLC chairperson and vice-chair respectively, gave an overview of the history of the university. They answered some queries which were mostly about the courses and scholarship opportunities offered by the university.
An original composition was sung by the PWDs before the program ended.
