Consul Rowena Daquipil shared DFA Secretary Teodoro Locsin’s message that calls for Filipinos to live the spirit of Bayanihan and work together: “It is my hope that we – those in the foreign service, overseas Filipinos and each Filipino for that matter, will all continue to work together, with courage and compassion, to overcome our struggles, in order to uplift our families, to secure and better our communities, and to unite for the progress of our country.”

Labor Attache Atty. Alex Padaen read the message of DOLE Secretary Silvestre Bello that recognized the unyielding spirit of OFWs around the world. “I extend the government’s gratefulness to and recognition of the Filipino workers, in the Philippines and elsewhere in the world, our modern-day heroes, who have been our nation’s most reliable force in pursuit of national growth and development.

Tonight, June 12 – the colors of the Philippine flag will light up at the Dubai Festival City at 9:00 pm and at the Burj Khalifa by 9:40 pm.
