WELCOME to LAS ISLAS FILIPINAS
Ang Bayan kong Pilipinas,
Lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak.
Pag-ibig ang sa kaniyang palad
Nag-alay ng ganda’t dilag
At sa kaniyang yumi at ganda,
Dayuhan ay nahalina.
Bayan ko, binihag ka,
Nasadlak sa dusa.
Ibon mang may layang lumipad,
Kulungin mo at umiiyak!
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag,
And ‘di magnasang makaalpas?
Pilipinas kong minumutya
Pugad ng luha ko’t dalita
Makita kang sakdal laya!

Cherry Hill, New Jersey 09 April 2015 - The Philippine Consulate in cooperation with the Filipino Executive Council of Greater Philadelphia, Inc.

PLEASE JOIN US to CELEBRATE OUR CULTURE & HERITAGE
Philippine Independence Day Parade, 2014
“Triumphs of the Filipino: Pride of the Philippines”
NEW YORK CITY —The annual Philippine Independence Day Parade will celebrate its 116th anniversary, featuring an all-day street fair and cultural festival stretching from 38th Street to 23rd Street and Madison Avenue, on Sunday, June 1, from 10AM to 6PM.
This is the largest Philippine Independence Day parade outside the Philippines, hosted by the Philippine Independence Day Council Inc. (PIDCI), a 25-year old nonprofit organization.
Among the stars of the celebration are: First Filipina Miss World Megan Young, who with PIDCI raised funds for the victims of super typhoon Haiyan in central Philippines; Original Philippine Music (OPM) icons Kuh Ledesma, Cecile Azarcon, Edlyn Peregrina and Ogie Alcasid; First Filipina Carnaval Queen in Brazil Bessie Badilla; Grand Marshals Drs. Emilio and Felicisima Quines, longtime medical mission volunteers.
Around 200 Filipino American organizations and estimated100,000 people, mostly Filipinos and Filipino Americans from the New York Tri-State area, Pennsylvania, California, Canada and the Philippines are expected to attend. “What started out as a small Independence Day Parade that passed by a few blocks near the Philippine Consulate on Fifth Avenue in the early ‘90s has grown into a huge annual celebration along Madison Avenue,” says Fe Martinez, PIDCI’s president. “We owe that to the Filipinos’ strong family ties and genuine concern for one another, especially in times of hardship and natural disasters.”
Leading the daylong celebrations are AARP’s Asian American and Pacific Islander arm and My Shelter Foundation, which promotes solar bottle bulbs called “Liter of Light.” This year’s theme is “Triumphs of the Filipino: Pride of the Philippines,” celebrating Filipinos’ capacity to persevere over adversity.

MORE than a MISSION
As typhoon Yolanda strikes hard and hurt our people from Cebu, Bohol, Samar, Leyte, Tacloban and nearby islands, we at Las Islas Filipinas (org) under the banner of The Nursing Office strikes back harder to help.
When disasters happen and cause chaos among the people, near and far, The Nursing Office as an organization, work calmly to plan the course of action in the most professional and human way possible for the maximum benefit and utilization of available resources in the most cost-effective way.
While so many of us have unconsciously expressed anxiety and almost disbelief in this disaster, I want to share these philosophy and concepts so that we may all adjust to this nature's fury in the most appropriate way:
- This is an EMERGENCY, do not PANIC.
- This is a natural calamity that nobody can stop, then let us ACCEPT it.
- We as individual can be helpless, so let us do our part singly, quietly, in every way we could.
- The victims are dealing with this disaster tremendously; they need help from well people.
- We cannot do it all alone; we need organizations to do their way.
- We cannot re-invent the wheel on the logistics of Emergency & Disaster Management. Let us give that to the experts who are already doing something (Red Cross, USAIDS, etc.)
- This can happen again, let us be ALWAYS READY.
- Human nature can be corrupted under circumstances, let us give allowance to that, so that there will be left over for our people.
- Can this be a serious sign and effect of global warming, then let us think GREEN for our planet.
- ABOVE all, there is our FAITH & Spirituality, Let us PRAY.
I hope that these readings have helped you. Then I say, LET US GO, This is our MISSION, as ONE.
