With its mission of serving all Filipino citizens in the area, the Club has really gone a long way to making these goals come true.

In these lonely and uncertain times caused by the pandemic, it is important for Filipinos to reach out to each other and be more united than ever, and that’s something that the Ras Al Khaimah community has made with passion to serve fellow Filipinos.
