LOYALTY PLEDGE OF AN ADVOCATE OF THE
RIGHTS OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES
The Philippine Society for Orphan Disorders, Inc. (PSOD) believes that persons with disabilities have the same rights enjoyed by other citizens that should be respected, protected and fulfilled by all, especially by every community leader and head of all government agencies;
Because of this, PSOD hereby pledges to the best of its ability to advocate for PWD rights and privileges, in accordance with international treaties ratified by the Philippine government and all national laws that should be implemented by the State;
As an advocate, PSOD will denounce all forms of negative actions that will put down their dignity, especially those of the children and older persons; and to stop violence, abuse, vilifications and all forms of discrimination on the basis of disability;
PSOD will advocate, within its membership and the network within its reach and competency, the inclusion of PWDs in all programs and services, to uplift their lives within their own community, within their family, and within the society;
PSOD will do its best to be a part of a massive campaign on disability awareness geared toward their empowerment and integration into the mainstream of society so they will become partners in nation-building; and
As an ADVOCATE of their inherent rights, PSOD solemnly swear that the organization will encourage more advocates to commit the same pledge, followed by affirmative actions in order, to realize our goals leading to a nurturing community for all.
