Philippine Embassy celebrates Labor Day and Flores de Mayo in the Holy Land E-mail

On 6 May, over 150 people, including representatives from the Tel Aviv city government and members of the local and religious community in Israel, gathered at the lush Hayarkon Park in northern Tel Aviv for the Embassy’s third annual joint celebration of Labor Day and Flores de Mayo.

Twenty Filipino community organisations participated in the Flores de Mayo parade, with participants carrying flower arches and wearing costumes representing their respective regions. The event, organised in partnership with the Philippine Overseas Labor Office and the Overseas Workers’ Welfare Office in Israel, was the Embassy’s salute to over 25,000 Filipino workers in Israel on the occasion of Philippine Labor Day.

Philippine Ambassador to Israel Neal Imperial thanked the Filipino community and the Embassy’s guests for joining the celebration, and took the opportunity to honour the contributions of Filipino workers to the country’s development. “We honour our workers – our Overseas Filipino workers in particular, who are our partners for national development,” Ambassador Imperial affirmed.
