The Philippine Embassy in Kuwait led by Charge d’ Affaires Mohd Noordin Pendosina Lomondot marked on Wednesday the 121st Philippine Independence Day with a flag hoisting ceremony at the embassy premises followed by a brief programme.

Lomondot welcomed all the leaders and members of various Filipino organisations during the event under the theme “Tapang ng Bayan, Malasakit sa Mamamayan,” (Courage of the Nation, Compassion for the People) as he read out the message of Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.


Meanwhile, Assistant Labour Attache Teresa Olgado delivered the message of Department of Labour and Employment Secretary Silvestre Bello III followed by Vice Consul Charleson Hermosura who read out the message of Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr.

Finally, Social Welfare Attache Vicky Navida conveyed the message of Department of Social Welfare and Development Secretary Rolando Bautista. The reading of messages was followed by some intermission numbers from singing Champs Maroel Guarin and Charvin Molaco of the Infinity Events Management as well as song numbers from some embassy staff. On the same occasion, Lomondot inaugurated the Sentro Rizal that aims to promote Philippine arts, culture and language, especially among children of overseas Filipinos.

Established in line with Republic Act 10066 or the National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009, the Sentro Rizal in Kuwait will feature a Filipiniana library and an exhibition hall. Under the law, the centre will serve as repository of Philippine arts, culture and language, including books, digital video discs, compact discs, films, magazines, artworks, tourism promotion materials and information materials.

The centre will also offer Filipino language courses as well as hold exhibits, small concerts, poetry reading and Philippine cuisine lessons. The Philippine Independence day celebration was capped by an “Almusal ng Bayan” where everyone enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast served, showcasing Filipino cuisine.
