There is a saying that our beloved Overseas Filipino Workers or OFWs are the heroes of today. In Filipino, sila ang mga makabagong bayani. Trying your luck in a foreign country to secure a family’s future is not easy at all. I’ve witnessed some of our kababayans abroad (UK, Malaysia, Singapore) who are working hard so that they can send some money to their families back in the Philippines. Do you think leaving your husband, children or parents is easy?

I think almost every Filipino knows an OFW. I am proud to say that my mom is one of them and I do appreciate her sacrifices in order to give me and my brother a good life. She left the country six years ago and it is a decision that I didn’t agree on at first, but I learned to accept that it is a need especially with my brother’s condition. I went there last year and the scenarios being depicted in some of our OFW-related movies like Milan, Caregiver and Anak do happen in real life.
Whether we admit it or not, there are some instances wherein we fail to make them feel appreciated. Worse, we seldom say ‘Thank You’. Some only remember their OFW relative when they need money for school or health expenses. We only remember them when we need something. All they need is a little love and appreciation from the recipients of their hard-earned money.
I am a regular client of Western Union (i guess most bloggers know why *winks*) and it is such a relief that you can spot a stall not only within the Philippines, but also abroad. Now, it is easier to send and receive money from any part of the world anytime without much hassle! As long as you have your MCTN number with you and the right identification cards, you will surely receive your moolah.
In line with this, Western Union is sponsoring a contest! It is simply called the Western Union World Network Challenge.
