Cebu City, Philippines—A home for the athletes of the Philippine Accessible Disability Service, Inc (PADS) will soon rise in Cebu in December 2020. 

The soon to be PADS Adaptive Sports and Social Center will be situated in Barangay Umapad, Mandaue City. 

Jp Ecarma Maunes, PADS Executive Director,  said that the construction of the facility will start as soon as they have the enough funds.

“We encourage our stake holders, the LGU and donors to help us make this dream a reality for the persons with disabilities in our community,” he said. “We want to activate the community to take full ownership of the advocacy and share the vision of PADS towards a disability-inclusive Filipino society.”

Maunes told Cebu Daily News Digital the Sports and Social Center will not just serve as their home, but also a training ground for persons with disabilities. 

“We want to provide an avenue for persons with disabilities to engage in sports and recreational rehabilitation activities and for the public to get to know more about community based rehabilitation” said Maunes. 

The sports and social center is a two-storey building with a huge space for outdoor training. There will also be a space for all their sports equipment, a gym, a canteen, a lecture room and a meeting area.  /END
