The disabled person is legally called PWD to mean person with disability. They are given some privileges to make their life more enjoyable. For food in the restaurant or fast food, there is a 20% discount and a smaller discount for medicine and groceries.

Not to forget, they also get 20% discount in public transport and domestic travels on boats and trains.
