A Brief History 简史

CHUN SUN WOI KWON (CSWK) is the Association of overseas Chinese, with surnames  "YAN" and "TANG", who were originally from Guangdong and are now living in the Philippines. Established in 1927, it has one of the longest and richest histories among the Chinese clan associations in the Philippines.

The Association used to hold office in a rented building facility which also served as free living quarters for elderly compatriots.  To save on costs, after the elderly residents had passed on, the Association decided to give up the lease.   Fortunately, the Honorary President, Mr. Henry Ah generously offered an office space in the corporate office of their family business, Liberty Bakery, as the CSWK secretariat office up to the present.

CHUN SUN WOI KWON is an affiliate member of the Grand Family Association of the Philippines, Philippines Federation of Filipino-Cantonese Association, Inc., and Philippines Alliance of Filipino-Cantonese Association. Members of these three umbrella organizations often join forces to organize charitable projects and social services which benefit the Filipino-Chinese community.

In accordance with the provision of their by-laws, the Board of Directors schedules the election and induction of new officers, holds quarterly meetings presided by the chairman, and convenes special meetings for urgent and special matters.

Despite concerted efforts by overseas Chinese in the Philippines to preserve the customs and traditions of their homeland, these are slowly disappearing due to acculturation. For instance, many of their second and generation descendants no longer speak Cantonese.

Realizing that they stand to lose their Chinese cultural identity altogether, if urgent and more effective measures are not undertaken to address this alarming concern, the Philippines Alliance of Filipino-Cantonese Association and the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Inc. have organized several projects to enable overseas Chinese in the Philippines to rediscover their Chinese heritage.

For several years now, they have been offering free summer classes for non-speakers to learn Cantonese. Likewise, they have organized trips to China for those who desire to rediscover and absorb the culture of the motherland and trace ancestral roots. These trips, not only rekindle people’s pride in their rich Chinese culture, they also promote understanding among town-mates and create bonds with their ancestral heritage.
