PRESIDENT DUTERTE TO HAND AWAY TODAY THEIR AWARDS; AWARDEES GIVEN ROUND-TRIP TICKETS & OTHER UNEXPECTED PERKS!

 

The Commission on Filipinos Overseas hosted a Pre-Awards Testimonial Dinner in honor of the 2018 Presidential Awardees on December 3, 2018 at the Manila Hotel.

CFO Secretary Justice Francisco “Nick” Acosta and Usec. Astravel Pimentel-Naik welcomed and gave “plaque of commendation” to all the awardees who are based overseas.

In his inspirational message, Secretary Acosta recognized the valuable contributions of the awardees - “We have with us a diverse set of awardees from Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Northern America across different fields of expertise who inspire the next generation of Filipino professionals.

Our overseas Filipinos have evolved from being just senders of cash or personal remittances to becoming investors and entrepreneurs, achievers, good Samaritans, and humanitarians.

They have learned to pay forward the blessings they have gained and achieved.

For both the Philippines and their host countries, they have become models of industry, sacrifice, and love.”

AWARDEES ALL:

ARTIST PAUL C. BALAN (center), along with two other awardees, shows his certificate of the award for  Pamana ng Pilipino (legacy of a Pilipino) that he will get from President Duterte on Dec. 5th in Malacanang.


He also conveyed that under the present administration, President Rodrigo Duterte gives utmost priority to overseas Filipinos.

He also happily announced that for the first time since the conferment of the Presidential Awards, the CFO in partnership with PAGCOR and its President Atty. Alfredo Lim, will be sponsoring the roundtrip airfare and hotel accommodation of all the awardees. 

PRAISED FOR THEIR HARD WORK 

Atty. Lim praised the awardees for their hard work and for upholding the honor and pride of the Philippines.

The awardees expressed gratitude for the Awards, saying it was an early Christmas gift and truly a humbling experience that the Philippine government noticed their sacrifices, benevolence, extraordinary talent and important role in nation-building.

They said that the Presidential medallion they will be receiving from President Duterte will serve as an inspiration for them to continue their good deeds in contributing to Philippine progress and development and assisting overseas Filipino communities.

Acknowledging the immense philanthropic contributions of overseas Filipinos and for transparency in government transactions, Usec. Pimentel-Naik led the launching of the new Lingkod sa Kapwa Pilipino (LINKAPIL) online payment system.

The LINKAPIL Program, a pioneering diaspora philanthropy service of the government, provides a system for overseas Filipinos who desire to do their share in serving fellow Filipinos by supporting developmental projects in the Philippines.

Aside from the sumptuous buffet dinner and incentives, awardees were also treated to a night full of merriment and original Filipino songs rendered by Philippine music icon Joey Ayala, Dawn Bande, and Tales of Music Strings.

This year’s Presidential awardees come from 12 countries and territories and had gone through a four-stage selection process involving multi-sectoral representation.

The Presidential Awards for Filipino Individuals and Organizations Overseas (PAFIOO) have four categories – Banaag, Pamana ng Pilipino, Lingkod sa Kapwa Pilipino (LINKAPIL), and Kaanib ng Bayan.

TIME TO CELEBRATE:

PAUL C. BALAN made sure he has his wife, Marra (nee: Vitor), to cheer for him when he gets the award from President Duterte on Dec. 5 in Malacanang.
