The Council of Filipino Associations in Austria, popularly known as CFAA or Council recently celebrated a Thanksgiving event at the grounds of the Catholic parish of Leopoldau, 1210 Vienna. Mr. Elmer Blanco, CFAA President expressed his gratitude to all the „kababayans“ in Austria, most especially the member organizations for their utmost support during the big Filipino events this year—the Philippine Independence Day Ball and the Barrio Fiesta.
Consul General Sulpicio Confiado and wife also graced the occasion.
The CFAA, now on ist 15th year, is the umbrella organizations of the majority of Filipino associations in Austria. The Council‘s fundamental objective is to unify all existing Filipino organizations in Austria, so as to integrate in the mainstream of the Austrian society. The leaders believed that much can be achieved if there is solidarity and unity in the Filipino community.
Leaders of the Council members are working very hard to mobilize and bring into existence the Council, which will then protect the general welfare and uplift the honor and dignity of all Filipinos here in Austria.
Since the birth of the council, it took charge of such significant and considerable activities of the Filipino community,such as the Philippine Independence Day Ball, Barrio Fiesta, Paskong Pinoy, etc.
