Initiatives for Dialogue and Empowerment through Alternative Legal Services, Inc. (IDEALS) executive director Edgardo Ligon said he is happy that the UN has now considered legal services as one of the future post-disaster needs.
“Imagine losing all your important documents after a typhoon and no one is around to help you reconstruct these records? Ligon asked. “We are pleased that the award recognizes us and our inclusion in the shortlist, raised our optimism that international organization will support this initiative.”
