True to our 2019 Team Building motto; "If you can laugh together, you can work together" the European Network of Filipino in Diaspora (ENFiD)-Germany, after the lockdowns and restrictions, modestly gathered for the Annual Meeting in Düsseldorf Art Gallery. The election of a new set of officers took place after it was postponed last year due to the pandemic. Our chairperson
Evelyn Alcarmen Mueschen accepted the nomination to continue her 2nd term and was unanimously elected. We also glad to announce that active youths were elected unanimously, as Vice Chairman Jeffrey Morales, Secretary Wendell Adrian Schardin, and Deputy Secretary Markamie De Guzman Kaye Amie Kaye. Incumbent Secretary Marivic Abalos-Sossnowski Mavs Mundo Abalos-Sossnowski accepted her new role as the Treasurer and Josephine Vinluan Jo Lohlein as Deputy Treasurer. Last but not least Vice Chairman, Mary Grace Lugo Schardin and Marvel Markgraf Lequido Marvel Doerste were delighted to work together as PR Officers for 2022-2023.
Committed to facilitating previous projects and engagements of the organization, the members agreed to focus on Education and Development especially supporting projects that empower the education of the less fortunate children in the Philippines. These include information drives for our "Kababayans" for their integration and re-integration concerns in Germany.
With this, we are grateful to our benefactors, sponsors, and volunteers. They had been the source of our motivation to continue to serve the community. We hope to work with you again, continue to empower, connect and engage!
Thank you, vielen Dank, Maraming Salamat!
In the past two years, ENFiD-Germany`s priority is to support our Kababayan back in the Philippines due to COViD-19 and natural calamities' economic challenges. Though this is one of the aims of our organization, we still wish to fulfill other purposes that we have in our Constitution and By-Laws. Hence, the decision to refocus our advocacies in our receiving country - Germany and leave the European level of ENFiD.
We thank everyone with whom we worked together in the past. We wish the organization, its members, and the Board of Directors all the best.
