“Despite being away from our beloved country, you  continue to seek ways to improve the quality of our citizenry’s lives through varied endeavors. Truly, geographical distance cannot hinder us from upholding our social responsibility , as well as our distinct Filipino values of generousity and compassion,” Confiado said in his speech.
