Friends! A time for a joyful celebration! On 29th October, the Filipino Australian Club of Perth Inc (FACPI) hosted a grand carnival, commonly known as The Grand Filipino Fiesta.
Let's discover the history of fiesta...
The Spanish influence on Filipino culture was profound in the 16th century. Fiesta is about the celebration of a city or province's patron saint. Traditionally, the fiesta is also a celebration of joy where people enjoy the delicious authentic Filipino cuisine and culture. Here in Perth, fiesta provides a platform for the local Filipino Australian to gather together.
Chung Wah CAC was invited to this year's fiesta to amplify our theme further, "Branching Together". This is an excellent opportunity to connect with the Filipino community and promote government initiatives such as Carer Gateway. As a service provider under Carer WA, the Carer Gateway initiative aims to assist non-English speaking carers, helping you with support and services to navigate the role of carers. We speak your languages and understand your culture.
Are you currently caring for someone with a disability, ongoing illness, elderly, friends or family? On the contrary, are you looking after someone close? It's ok to seek help and advice. Carer Gateway can help you understand the support available to you. Try it out! This is a free Australian service that provides a range of helpful support and local services. Contact us below.
