MESSAGE OF TOURISM SECRETARY CHRISTINA GARCIA FRASCO IN OBSERVANCE OF RAMADAN 2023
We send greetings of peace as our Muslim brothers and sisters in the Philippines and around the world mark the beginning of Ramadan.
These solemn days of fasting provide many profiles of sacrifice, courage, compassion, and faith. We can all learn from and aspire to these values as we all do our share in the work of building and transforming our nation.
The Filipino identity and heritage is made richer by the storied history, the living cultural traditions, and the unwavering faith of the Filipino people across the vast and diverse Regions of the Philippines.
May our respect for the religious celebration of Ramadan continue to forge unity, harmony, love, and respect and reverence for our diversity.
We wish you and your loved ones a blessed observance!
