PHL Permanent Representative to the UN attends Back-to-Back Filipino Events on her First Week in Geneva
18 December 2013 – Ambassador Cecilia B. Rebong, the new Philippine Permanent Representative to the United Nations and Other International Organizations in Geneva, hit the ground running as she graced two back-to-back Filipino Community events in her first week in Geneva.
Ambassador Rebong attended the Year-End Thanksgiving and Christmas events of the Filipino Catholic Community in Geneva (FCCG) and the Come to Jesus Fellowship International (CTJFI), two of the largest faith-based Filipino groups in Geneva, held on December 14 and 15 respectively.
She expressed her appreciation to the Filipino migrant groups for their continued support to kababayans in the Philippines, especially in the wake of the recent Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) which devastated Visayas in November.
Ambasador Rebong assured them that her doors are always open to members of the Filipino community and that the Philippine Mission to the UN in Geneva continues to lend support to the community’s various activities and programs. She thanked them for being the best ambassadors of Philippine culture, values and traditions. END
