June 14, 2015: Consul General Atty. Raul H. Dado of the Philippine Embassy n Kuwait, speaks to clear questions about Filipino organizations in Kuwait.
Following is his post on his Facebook page;
IN RESPONSE TO MOUNTING QUERIES
As per Philippine and Kuwait law and per records of Kuwait immigration, the Filipino community is the 190, 000 or more Filipinos in Kuwait ( Similar to the Indian, Egyptian, Pakistani and other communities for other nations ).
There are three main groups of Filipino organizations in Kuwait : the Alliance, the Coalition, and Others. These groups can give themselves Titles which they can freely use to describe themselves.
However, the Alliance and the Coalition form part of the Embassy Advisory Council, and are recognized and named by the Embassy as such.
They each have their own umbrellas binding their own individual organizations, and for this reason can each enter into a Memorandum of Agreement for their own legitimate purposes.
