Recognizing Bayanihan

21 Jul

Certificates of Appreciation and Recognition were awarded to individuals who contributed to the relief efforts for the victims of  typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng which devastated the Philippines last year. Awards were given by Vice Consul Arman Talbo (leftmost) and Consul General Eduardo Jose de Vega (rightmost) of the Philippine Consulate General in Barcelona. The event was also attended by different Filipino associations in Catalonia. 

These groups/individuals, all based in Barcelona and Andorra, mobilized to raise funds to help our kababayans during the calamity. Fundraising projects and campaign were initiated to gather more donations, whether in cash or in kind and one shipping company even shipped relief goods at a very low price from Barcelona to Manila. They are:

  • Filipino students of Instituto de Estudios Superiores de la Empresa (IESE)-Barcelona
  • Associació de Residents Filipins a Andorra
  • Ms. Zenaida Boris Callos
  • Ms. Patricia Ilagan
  • Ms. Ma-Anne Ignacio Valmeo
  • Ms. Luzviminda Ignacio Valmeo
