Mga Outstanding OFWs sa Italya, binigyang parangal

“One Voice, One Action” – FEDERFIL – ITALY

 

Milan – Sa pangunguna ng Federation of Filipino Communities and Associations in Italy o FEDERFIL-ITALY at ng Philippine Consulate General Milan at sa pakikipagtulungan ng SODALIS and Friends, Federation of Filipino Associations in Piemonte at Filipino Community Club of Genova ay naisakatuparan sa ikalawang pagkakataon ang OFW Awards 2016 kung saan ang mga Overseas Filipinos sa Italya ay kinikilala sa kanilang pagsusumikap, pinasasalamatan sa kanilang pagiging halimbawa at pinararangalan sa pagiging mahusay anumang sektor ang kinabibilangan.

 

Kasabay ng pagdiriwang ngayong Disyembre ng Month of Overseas Filipinos (batay sa Proclamation No. 276 na pinirmahan noong June 21, 1988) ay ginanap ang Araw ng Parangal, sa Milan noong Dec 4. Dinaluhan ito ng humigit kumulang na 400 mga Pilipino mula religious group, mga asosasyon at civic organization na buhat pa sa iba’t ibang bahagi ng Italya.  

Bagaman hindi nagmula sa gobyerno o anumang institusyon ng pamahalaan ang pagtanggap ng sash at plaque, ito ay lubos na nagdulot ng kaligayahan at pagmamalaki sa bawat awardees. Ito ay inaasahan ring  magdudulot ng higit na inspirasyon sa marami. 

Ito ay patunay lamang na ang matagal na panahon ng pananatili ng mga Pilipino sa Italya ay nagbunga na at dapat ng kilalanin. Hindi dapat isantabi at dapat bigyang halaga”, ayon kay Ariel Lachica sa kanyang panimula. 

Hindi rin mapapantayan ang suportang buhat sa Konsulado, sa pangunguna ni Consul General Marichu Mauro at ng kasamang si OIC Polo Milan Welfare Officer Jocelyn Hapal. Nagpaunlak din sa paanyaya si Honorary Consul of Tuscany, Dott. Fabio Fanfani. 

Isang napaka-gandang layunin nito at kami sa Konsulado ay lubos na natutuwa at naging bahagi kami sa tagumpay ng maraming Pilipino dito sa North Italy”, ani ConGen Mauro. 

Kasabay ng tagumpay ng ikalawang Awarding Ceremonies ay magpapatuloy pa rin ang FEDERFIL-ITALY sa susunod na taon at ito ay gaganapin sa South Italy, ayon sa anunsyo ni Lachica. 

Ito ay katuparan lamang sa mga ipinangakong proyekto ng Federfil para sa ikabubuti ng mga manggagawang Pilipino sa Italya, “One Voice, One Action”, ika nga.

Higit sa 60 ang mga awardees na  masusing pinag-aralan ng mga bumubuo sa Panel of Consultants. Sila ay tunay na natatangi at dapat ipagmalaki ng lahing Pilipino.
