21 September 2019 - The Philippine Embassy in Norway joined Mekeni Norway’s event for a cause, held at Bekkelaget Menighetssenter, Sandstuveien 15, 1178, Oslo. Mekeni Norway’s main aim is to raise funds for its charity projects in the Philippines, and if the necessity arises, for our kababayans in Oslo.
It was an evening of music, laughter and delicious Filipino food. The event got even more interesting with its theme of "Ascot", with the ladies wearing colorful hats in all shapes and sizes. One stand out beauty won the best costume for the night.
Charge d’Affaires, a.i. Maria Elena Algabre gave her inspirational message to the members of Mekeni Norway. Guests applauded the group’s charity works in the different provinces in the Philippines. CDA Algabre also officiated the Oath Taking of the new set Officers and Committee Heads for 2019-2021. With a very apt motto of “We care, we share”, Mekeni Norway is ably led by its President and Founder Ms. Estelita P. Puyat. END
