Pia Gonzalez Abucay, Special Media FEDERFIL Europe OFW Awardee 2017

Pia Gonzalez Abucay is ENFiD Italy’s active President and Country Representative. She has been involved in community service long before she joined ENFiD. She was elected twice as City Councilor of Rome and has been promoting the integration of Filipinos in Italian community. I first met Pia in 2014, she was one of the moderator in the Linggo ng Wika event in Rome which was co-sponsored by the Knights of Rizal. I was awed by her fluency in the Tagalog language especially that she has been living outside the Philippines for more than 20 years.
My respect deepened when I learned about her dedication to community service and her newspaper, Ako ay Filipino.
The newspaper has been in existence for 15 years in Italy. It is written in Tagalog. It provides immigration news and guides, where Filipinos can find help on their rights and duties in their host country.
Over 30,000 copies are distributed free of charge all over Italy every month. The online version, has an average traffic of 828,000 pageviews a month (based on the statistics of July 2017 from Google Analytics.
It is not surprising that Pia has been recognised for her work by FEDERFIL Italy – Europe with a Special Media Award.
