The Philippine Embassy´s “Hatid Kaalaman Para sa mga Pilipino” was successfully launched in Palma de Mallorca, Spain on 22 February 2019, which is aimed at reaching out to and engaging Filipinos all over Spain and Andorra through knowledge development, information dissemination, skills training and consultations.
A brainchild project of H.E. Ambassador Philippe J. Lhuillier, “Hatid Kaalaman” combines the Embassy´s consular information awareness, Gender and Development programs, Labor services, skills training & development and security awareness in one program for the Filipino community.
The first series of the Embassy´s “information handbook”, containing consular information, Philippine regulations, labor services, and other important advisories were distributed to the participants. The second series, which will be distributed soon, will contain important information on Spanish regulations, which may be useful to Filipinos.
The team, headed by Third Secretary and Vice Consul Raisa A. Mabayo, was joined by Labor Attaché Joan Lourdes D. Lavilla; Defense and Armed Forces Attaché Colonel Harold Anthony F. Pascua, PA; Welfare Officer Nesa S. Nolido; and Gender and Development Focal Person and Administrative Officer Chester A. Diaz during the well- attended four-hour forum, which garnered positive feedbacks from the participants.
The “Hatid Kaalaman” program is scheduled in Madrid and in various parts of Spain and Andorra.
