The Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 is underway having more than 7,500 athletes from 200+ countries participating in more than 20 sporting events.

Ambassador Hjayceelyn Quintana urges the Filipino community to show their support not just for the Filipino athletes that they’re rooting for but also to show the participants from other countries that their achievements are celebrated as well: “For the past months, the Philippine Embassy has coordinated with Special Olympics World Games Local Organizing Committee, to implore the Filipino community in the UAE to support and volunteer for the games.

“I continue to encourage the strong Filipino community across the Emirates to show their support to this largest humanitarian sporting event, by not only supporting the Philippine team in their competitions, but by watching all the teams in as many games as possible,” said Quintana
