  1. Dear Amie,
    Our apologies for getting several details here wrong – and thank you for sorting it all out. We did find this on the embassy facebook as you have seen. If you have news in the future of relevance to the Nordic countries or Nordic expats, feel free to email directly to [email protected]
    Thank you!

  2. Good day,

    My name is Amie Perez, and I am the Media Manager of Roots of Health. We would like to point out some errors in this article. The Facebook post shared here is not from the Embassy or from the city government of Puerto Princesa, but from Roots of Health. It was merely shared by the Norwegian Embassy’s Facebook page. The Norwegian Embassy made the donation, but they did not visit Puerto Princesa. The staff of Roots of Health facilitated and delivered the donation, as a partner of the Norwegian Embassy.

    Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
