From a successful run in Australia, ABS-CBN’s summer entertainment caravan #JustLoveArawAraw crosses over to more parts of the world as premier network The Filipino Channel (TFC) brings the stars and celebrations to Middle East and Europe starting this coming week.

ABS-CBN, the largest and leading Filipino-owned media and entertainment network, kicked off the Philippines’s summer season in April with the theme #JustLoveArawAraw. The theme speaks of how Filipinos show their compassion for families, friends & countrymen in many ways despite the challenges they face. Since May, TFC has been bringing the celebrations to various parts of the world starting in Australia last May 3 and 5 and was mounted simultaneously on June 10 in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

This time, TFC together with Filipino community partners in key areas are bringing the summer festivities to United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain and Oman in the Middle East, and will be joining the colorful festivities in Italy, Spain, France, Austria, Switzerland and the UK in Europe. To spread the #JustLoveArawAraw spirit in collaborative events are Philippine Concert King Martin Nievera, Breakthrough Actress Arci Muñoz and The Next Big Diva Morrissette Amonin the Middle East; and Dance Empress Maja Salvador, comedian Chokoleit and Kapamilya Heartthrob Daniel Matsunaga in the United Kingdom.

Meantime, Filipinos from these countries are expected to come together to celebrate love through music, laughter & festivities via the TFC Hour in these upcoming events:
