Karen Leads Crusade for Work Opportunities of Persons with Disabilities

Award-winning broadcast journalist Karen Davila will stand up for persons with disabilities (PWDs) in “Krusada” tomorrow (Jan 19) as she advocates better employment opportunities for them through Ability Olympics competitions in the country.

The Abi-Lympics is an international event where PWDs showcase their skills in variety of categories such as desktop publishing, embroidery, and waste re-use. Karen wants to open this opportunity to PWDs so they can cultivate a positive disposition and be productive citizens.

“There’s more to Abi-Lympics than money. It pushes PWDs to develop their talent and believe in themselves. If we give them the opportunity to flourish, they can prove themselves,” Karen stressed.

Karen will also interview the two Filipino PWDs, Virgie Rabino and Bryan Manalo, who competed in the Abi-Lympics in South Korea last year. They will recount their preparations and experiences in the contest and how it greatly affected their lifestyle.

Listen, take part and be one with Karen’s crusade because it takes more than words to make a stand. Watch “Krusada” tomorrow (Jan 19) after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN, or earlier on DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable Channel 26), 9:15 PM.
