Filcom Denmark- Pasko

Filcom DK - the United organizations in Denmark joined Christmas Party in Copenhagen

After the succesful Independence Day this year the FILCOM- DK which consists of various organizations, church groups and other groups in Denmark will be having another joined events this Christmas called Paskøbenhavn. I’m one of the active organizer of this event and I’m very amazed how these Filipinos in Denmark sacrificed their precious time for the community. All FILCOM events are non profit and any proceeds will be used for common Filipino Activity in Denmark like the on going Consular Outreach and Mobile Passporting at the St. Anne Church big hall December 10-11 from 9-18, the Independence Event and this coming Christmas party.

Please contact any member of FILCOM-DK or you can email: babaylanDK (at) babaylan.dk if you want to reserved a ticket or check the Facebook group of FILCOM-DK here

Request for help in repatriation of a Filipina

November last year the Filipino community in Denmark were shock when Dulce, an au pair was killed in a vehicular accident. There is a on going ban of aupair in the Philippines European countries like Denmark who still approves au pair visas to thousand of Filipinas.  But when something terrible happens no one will take the responsibility not even the host country.  But the Bayanihan (Cooperative struggle) spirit of the Filipinos with the help of the Philippines Embassy her body was sent to the Philippines.  Read the rest of the story in www.babaylan.dk

Now another sad story happened to a former au pair who suddenly complained of back pain but it turned out that it was cancer please read below the letter of her cousin.

Dear Friends,

My mom’s cousin ate Carina passed away last wednesday in Herlev hospital due to a very aggressiev form of cancer. She was brought to the hospital early november due to some back pains, which turned out to be fluid in her lungs. In around 1 month time, the doctors have discovered cancer in her kidney, liver, both lungs, intestines and bones. An operation or Chemo was not an option anymore as the cancer was very aggressive. She was in morfin for around two weeks to help her with the pain, and then she passed away in her sleep last wednesday.

She hasnt been back home in the philippines for six years, her family here has not seen her in a long time. Her last wish was to be able go back and rest here.  I am asking for any amount of donation you can help us in our fund raising, so she can be here with her mother and siblings before christmas.

Please see attached file, and I thank you all in advance.

Additional information:

The  Funeral mass this coming Monday dec.22 at St. Anne’s church. 11am.
There is also  a Padasal for her this saturday 12pm at Bygmestervej 33 1tv. 2400 kbn. nv.

It is part of our customs to the Philippines to attend a funeral mass even if you are not friends of the family giving money as “abuloy” (alms) but the most important  is condoling the family of the deceased.  I live near a catholic church and a cemetery and 4 years ago my husband called me that it seems there was a demonstration of hundreds of Filipinos but it was actually a funeral of beloved Filipina who helped a lot of our Kababayans in her lifetime.  But its not only famous or known people that Filipinos flock during funerals it just in our culture to offer condolences and prayers.

My Condolences to Carina Camp David’s family. I hope my donation and the others kind hearted people will help ease the pain that struck here family.
