A taste of Asia in the heart of Austria
Tuesday October 17th 2017

from my point of View

Weihnachten 2010 ist wieder eine Geschichte!  Hope that the past Christmas gave us all the opportunity to offer thanksgiving for the achievements we  accomplished during the past year. 

In 2010, the Filipino community in Austria had experienced  unity and a true sense of nation. This is  very much apparent from the unified activities conducted  throughout the year— Independence Day Ball, Barrio Fiesta and the Paskong  Pinoy, coupled with a number of charity events that benefited, not only our „kababayans“ in need in the Philippines, but likewise our less fortunate brothers and sisters in Austria. The Alpha Phi Omega who  always supports the House Sarepta  and Mr. Wilson Tan Ho, who  contributed his time and effort to feed the homeless in  Vienna, the Philippine Embassy and Bantay Bata 163 Team with Mr. Mar Sembrano, who donated boxes of medicines for the needy in the Philippines.  Indeed, the spirit of bayanihan sprang Filipinos and Filipino-Austrians to action.

The new year, 2011— we are being called to strengthen the bonds that join all Filipinos and build on the gains we have achieved. We are challenged to work together  in order to advance  the goals and interests we have as Filipinos living in this foreign land.

It is my ardent  hope that we will take even more pride in our Filipino heritage and be further emboldened to reach-out and work with the larger Filipino-Austrian community.

Masaganang Bagong Taon!
