Group marks friendship day with gift giving drive

The Filipino-Chinese community in Baguio City celebrated the friendship day of both nations last June 9 with a gift-giving activity and the donation of the development at the Fil-Chi Friendship Park of the Botanical Garden. 

Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo issued Presidential Proclamation 148-2002 declaring June 9 of each year as Philippine-China Friendship day in the country.

Bags filled with goodies and simple snacks were provided to the beneficiaries as part of the program to celebrate the occasion.

This is the sixth year the Baguio-Benguet Filipino-Chinese community held the gift-giving to highlight the commemoration of the two nations’ friendship.

Peter Ng, event chairman of the friendship day celebration, said that the gift-giving was included by their group as one of the celebration activities to enhance the relationship between the Filipino-Chinese community and the locals who are in need of help.

About 100 graduates of the city’s drug rehabilitation program and families who were included in the 2015 national household survey who belong to the very poor category but were not yet included in the Pantawid Pampamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) were listed as beneficiaries who received the bag of goodies.

During the celebration, the local Fil-Chi community also signed the memorandum of agreement (MOA) where they will continue to finish the development of the 1,000-square meter area identified by the city government for the friendship park.

Through donations of the group, including the Chinese government through the China Consul General in Laoag, the first phase of the park was completed.

The activity was attended by members of the Fil-Chi community and city government officials including Wang Jianqun, Consul and head of Post Consulate of the People’s Republic of China in Laoag City.

Consul Jianqun, in her speech during the program, congratulated the city officials and various local Filipino-Chinese community organizations for their efforts and contribution to the completion of the Filipino-Chinese Friendship Arc Garden.

“I wish to take this opportunity to commend the good collaboration between the city government of Baguio and the various Filipino-Chinese community organizations for organizing the Philippine-China Friendship Day celebrations for the past 16 consecutive years. This year’s ribbon cutting of Friendship Arc Garden and the gift-sharing activity of persons with substance use disorder are good examples,” the consul added.

Mayor Mauricio Domogan said the Filipino Chinese community’s contribution to the development in the city is a sign of big brother relationship that they have with city government.

“The Filipino-Chinese community has been very active in its participation not only in times of fun and enjoyment but more importantly in time of calamities,” he said.

He mentioned of the disaster equipment and supplies continuously being provided to the government, which are utilized by emergency responders to alleviate sufferings and minimize loss of lives and property during calamities.
