The Philippine Embassy in Berlin welcomed the arrival of 13 Filipino nurses who will finally fulfill their dreams to work in Germany.
Bryan Robles, gave a brief testimonial where he acknowledged the nurses’ mixed emotions in coming to Germany to practice their profession at a time when there are also health challenges back home.
He said that, ultimately, the decision is “a fulfillment of a long-term aspiration not only for themselves but also for their families”.
The newly hired Filipino nurses arrived in Berlin last Friday, Aug. 7.
The welcome program for them was held at the Embassy’s outdoor amphitheater with hygiene measures observed in light of the COVID-19 situation.
Philippine Ambassador to Germany Ma. Theresa B. Dizon-De Vega congratulated the nurses for making it through various hurdles and wished them well on the next phase of their life in Germany which is the integration.
She assured them that the Embassy would be there to support them should they encounter difficulties, and encouraged them to get in touch with the Embassy and the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO) in Berlin in case the need arises.
