E-SPIN Group Philippines would like to take this opportunity to wish Araw ng Kagitingan 2022 to all Philippines customers, channel partners and suppliers. We hope that everyone will have a meaningful day on this significant national holiday.
Araw ng Kagitingan (Day of Valor) is an important day in Philippines history. Also known as Bataan Day or Bataan Corregidor Day, Araw ng Kagitingan is celebrated every year on 9th April in Philippines to commemorate the fall of the Bataan peninsula during the second world war.
As a matter of fact, 9th April marked a very painful memory in Philippines history. During that day, about over 76,000 Filipino, Chinese and American soldiers turned prisoners after losing their battle in defending Bataan to the Japanese. Additionally, the event also lead to another sorrowful event where thousands of the prisoners died due to starvation, exhaustion or in the hand of the Japanese as they marched 150 km to the prison camp located in San Fernando.
While Araw ng Kagitingan is an inevitable event in war, it is however, became an opportunity to the allies as it hindered Japanese progress in the pacific which eventually results in the allied victory.
War has always bring disruptive impacts physically, emotionally, also economically. This year, while our battle against Covid-19 continues, we are shocked by the Russia-Ukraine War news. The technologies we have today had allowed us to witness how destructive it was to both countries, thus, it is imaginable to us on the disastrous consequences of Araw ng Kagitingan to our veterans during that event. With this realisation, let’s us celebrate Araw ng Kagitingan with full spirit and patriotism as an appreciation to our veterans’ sacrifices in facing such event.
Again, to all Philippines customers, channel partners and suppliers, we wish everyone a remarkable Araw ng Kagitingan 2022. E-SPIN is always and forever grateful for your continuous support. Feel free to contact E-SPIN for any inquiry so we can be part of your project or operation requirements.
