PR-029-2022

02 June 2022 – Philippine Ambassador to Singapore, H.E. Joseph del Mar Yap, together with Atty. Ranvir Kumar Singh, President of the Philippine Bayanihan Society Singapore (PBSS), led the Culminating Bayanihan Walk Hour from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM on 29 May 2022 at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. 

With the theme “One walk, one hour, we walk stronger together against COVID!”, the Bayanihan Walk 2022, held in hybrid format, was participated in by Philippine Embassy staff and various Filipino Community organizations from 17 April to 28 May 2022. The culminating walk on 29 May 2022 was held simultaneously in two other locations, the Merlion Park and Dhoby Ghaut Green Park.

Launched in 2015, the “Bayanihan Walk” is an annual event of PBSS aimed at raising funds for the organization’s educational, social, and cultural activities, which in turn promote the integration of Filipinos within the Singaporean community, and strengthen the people-to-people relations of the two countries.

A steady partner of the Philippine Embassy, the PBSS is one of the recipients of the 2021 Presidential Award for Filipino Individuals and Organizations Overseas (PAFIOO) for its outstanding contribution in advancing the cause of the Filipino community in Singapore.

The Bayanihan Walk 2022, dubbed as walkathon for a cause, is a continuing fundraising campaign, details of which may be found at the PBSS website.
