Abuses vs. OFWs

The overseas filipino workers and migrant workers are pushed to every nook and cranny of the world by the continuing economic problem besetting our country. Migrante claims that more that “2,000 migrant Filipinos leave the country each day. They can be found in 182 countries worldwide.”

OFWs / MWs are considered as modern-day heroes because through their dollar remittances, they help the economy of the country. That is where ironies lie as more often they are helpless against abuses and discriminations as in the case of some of our OFWs in the middle east region.

Hi Fernando,

For a while there I thought you were Bayani Fernando! LOL!

Thanks for dropping by my site and for the shout. And also for tagging the post on rice.

I've been looking at your artwork here and these are very apt for editorial cartoons. Have you published any?

Thanks again and drop by anytime. Drop a line too if need be. :-) --Durano, done!

Truly bothering in all its sorry forms. Abuses against them, the OFWs, are just a few of the many prices they had to figuratively pay for seeking the greener fields.
