OFW Stories: How a repatriated Filipina is thriving back home.

At the very start of pandemic, we already knew that one of the most affected sectors of the Filipino community are the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW). As they say it in one commentary from Channel News Asia, it is the “worst time ever to be an OFW”.

Over half a million of them lost their jobs and were repatriated and were sent home to their provinces up to date. The government is also expecting between 70,000 to 130,000 more OFWs to return.

But the misery is not just about losing the only job that the whole family relies on. The cost of emotional distress due to being away with their loved ones amid these catastrophic events should also be looked into.

One of those who earned the courage to come home amid pandemic and be with her family is You-Ann Salaga, an ex-domestic helper in Singapore for 8 years, a single mother to her kids, and now an entrepreneur in Davao City.

To You-Ann, she may not earn as much as she did abroad, but that did not stop her from leaving the job that she had in Singapore. What’s important is that she has saved enough to start anew in Davao, in the loving arms of her children.

So the question is… how did she do it?

Here is the secret from You-Ann that you should know: Learn to make money on Sundays.

Sundays are the most-awaited day of the week for domestic helpers. It’s the only time of the week when they can take a long break, hang out with their Filipino friends, or go window shopping in Lucky Plaza.

For You-ann, Sunday is another day to make a living. She attended free cooking baking classes during her day-off until she started baking Filipino delicacies and selling them to her Filipina friends in Singapore.

This became her part-time business, and the money she earned went to her savings. Not on bags, shoes, nor nice-to-have items for herself. Not even to her family back home.

She learned that working abroad doesn’t mean that the money that she earns is not only for her family’s needs during the time being. As You-ann continued to support her kids from day-to-day, she also made sure that she’s saving for retirement and emergency, such as the pandemic.

Learn more on how You-ann managed to survive and thrive as she faced the challenges brought about to her and her family by the pandemic:

Donate Rice and Be A HERO to OFWs in need.

This pandemic indeed changed the way we live, and damaged a lot of lives in a short period of time.

Up to date, over 550,000 OFWs and seafarers are adversely affected. Thousands of them lost their jobs, and were sent home with nothing in their pocket. As a domino effect, their families who are solely dependent on them are also crying for help.

The country’s modern-day heroes are now the hurting heroes.

“Umuwi ang anak ko ng Pinas nang walang sahod. Wala na kaming ibang mapagkukunan kundi ang ayuda. Sa ngayon, wala na ring ayuda ang maibigay sa amin. Kaya Salamat po sa makakatulong pa.”

Elena, OFW Group – QC Chapter

In our efforts to lend a helping hand to overseas Filipinos who are now suffering, Beam&Go officially launched an online donation campaign called “Project KABAYANihan: Be a HERO to OFWs in need” back in June 2020.

We were granted 3 months of donation permit by the DSWD, and within that period, we earned approximately Php 230,000 cash donations from Filipinos across the world, all of which are used to purchase over 4500 kilos of rice that benefit more than 900 families of distressed OFWs and seafarers, those who lost their jobs, or are affected by travel ban due to COVID-19 pandemic, victims of illegal recruitment, abuse and maltreatment, and retrenchment. The beneficiaries are under care of our partner institutions who tirelessly serve our Kababayans amid COVID – Blas Ople Policy Center, United Filipino Seafarers, and OFW Watch.

LET’S DO IT AGAIN THIS 2021…

This 2021, we strive to continue serving more OFW families thru this initiative. With the permission of DSWD, we are running Project KABAYANihan once again, and this time, for the benefit of OFW families under care of new partner institutions:

OFWWATCH, a software program designed to link OFWs in distress, those calling for help, anywhere in the world, anytime of the day, via mobile.

COMPASS, a simplified and unified platform dedicated to Global Migrant Workers, their families and friends ensuring a safe journey at all times.

Marikina Overseas Family Circle Association Incorporated (MOFCAI) is a non-government organization looking after the welfare of the families of OFWs and ex-OFWs in NCR.

2 WAYS TO DONATE TO OFWS IN NEED

For as low as ₱255 for 5kg of rice, you can already make a huge difference to an OFW family’s life.

OPTION 1: WEBSITE DONATION

  1. Simply go to www.BeamAndGo.com/ricedonation
  2. Select the number of your desired rice donation (every 5kg will benefit 1 family)
  3. Proceed to checkout and choose from available payment options available in your location.

OPTION 2: DONATE VIA BANK DEPOSIT (Convenience Fee waived)

You may send deposit confirmation to donations@beamandgo.com together with your complete name, country, and mobile number to complete transaction.

After payment has been verified and confirmed, Beam&Go will deliver the total amount of rice donations to beneficiary institution for repacking and distribution to families of distressed OFWs.

This initiative is also supported by number of corporate and independent co-promoters from across the world, uniting to make a big impact to lives of struggling OFWs, and serve more beneficiaries:

An OFW’s Journey

Estrella and Eugenio

In 1965, Estrella and Eugenio B. Chua left Bacolod, Philippines and moved to New York. Eugenio, a fresh medical school graduate, was starting a 2-year medical internship at Cumberland Hospital1 in Brooklyn.

They left behind their parents, their sisters and brothers, their friends, and their 1-year-old daughter. Both barely spoke English and this trip was their first outside of the Philippines. They were alone and uncertain of what was next.

The plan was to complete the medical internship and move back to the Philippines and work in hospital in Bacolod or start a medical private practice.

At Cumberland hospital, none of Eugenio’s colleagues knew how to pronounce his name, so they just called him Gene. Gene proved to be a sure-footed, competent doctor, with a knack for being spot-on with his diagnosis. After the 2-year internship, the hospital offered him a permanent position. Gene accepted, and over the next 20 years, Gene went on to become Director of Pediatrics, Hematology, and Oncology at Cumberland Hospital and Brooklyn Hospital.

During this time, Estrella gave birth to two more children – a son and a daughter. She took care of the home, did “mom” things, and learned how to cook, eventually becoming renowned for her steamed fish, oxtail stew, and mah-kee pork soup.

In the mid-1970s, Estrella, Gene, and their children moved to Long Island, where Estrella and Gene started a private Pediatrics practice. Estrella was responsible for the front-of-the-house, acting as the glue that kept the whole office running smoothly. Gene took temperatures, prescribed medicine, and re-assured the patient’s parents, “don’t worry, everything will be fine”.

Gene continued to work at the hospital, splitting his time between Brooklyn and Long Island till the end of the 1980s. The medical practice thrived, and in over 40 years, together, Estrella and Gene treated tens of thousands of children.

With the path set by Estrella and Gene, family members and friends migrated to the New York City area. The social circle widened. Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners became big events at their house. The loneliness and fear of being away from their family in the Philippines was replaced with a sense of belonging in the US. Estrella and Gene were Americans now.

And they shared their good fortune with their families back home. Eugenio bought a house for his mom. They sent money to support their first daughter’s education and everyday expenses. They funded their sibling’s college education and sponsored their sibling’s migration to the US. When there was a physical, economic, or medical crisis, they sent money “back home”.

In the early years, Estrella and Gene would visit Bacolod every other year. Then as the years passed, the visits decreased. Their last visit to Bacolod was in 2013. They never moved back. 

It has been 56 years since Estrella and Gene left the Philippines. Both are no longer with us. Estrella passed away in 2014 and Gene passed away in 2020.

That move in 1965 from Bacolod to Brooklyn directly affected the lives of many people, including me. I am their son. Estrella and Gene were my parents; their hard work and sacrifice gave me the opportunities to live the life I live now; they instilled in me the importance of education, hard work, and perseverance; and they shaped my moral compass and my belief that “we’re all in this together”.

The More Things Change

Like my mom and dad many years before, Filipinos continue to leave the Philippines to work abroad, in Singapore, Hong, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, and the US.

In 2019, it is estimated that 2.2 million Filipino migrant workers work overseas2. In the Philippines, these migrant workers are referred to as “Overseas Filipino Workers” or OFWs.

Because of economic hardship and a dearth of decent-paying jobs, OFWs leave the Philippines and take on any type of work that is available. In many cases, OFWs are over-qualified for the overseas jobs they accept.

Unlike my dad’s time when doctors, scientists, architects, and engineers lead the migration, these days the major occupations for OFWs are domestic helpers, service staff, medical staff (nurses), shipmates, and factory workers. Close to 97% are working on an existing contract3.

In many countries, OFWs are not afforded the same legal, financial, and work-related rights afforded their host country’s citizens and long-term permanent residents. Employee abuse, lack of due process, and deportation are everyday threats that OFWs face. In addition, a path to citizenship is non-existent.

The main method for supporting their family remains the same: sending money (aka “remittance”).

Over the last 50 years, the mechanism for sending money has evolved for the better. Remittance centers, like Western Union, and digital wallet have capitalized on the internet, digitization, and crypto currencies to improve the speed of fund transfers, reducing the transfer time down to within 24 hours. And with new players entering the remittance market, the increased competition has lowered cable charges and transaction fees.

In 2019, OFWs remitted over USD$30 billion back to the Philippines4, representing 8% of the Philippines economy5.

In the provincial and rural areas where jobs employment opportunities are scarce, OFW remittances are critical to the welfare of the whole population. The reliance on OFWs is so pronounced that they are referred to as The Philippines “modern-day heroes” 6.

But have the lives of OFWs and their family improved?

For my mom and dad, they remained in the US because of the opportunities they were given during their initial 2 years in the US. My father’s medical skills were noticed and valued, and he was offered a permanent position at the hospital. The remitted funds to the Philippines were mostly used for basic needs, educations, and medical issues. The result was everyone was well-fed, they had a roof over their heads, and the education led to jobs and successful businesses.

For many current OFWs, when their 2-year contract is completed, they often find that they did not save enough money; because of inadequate financial literacy, their family expenses have increased, and they have incurred debt; and the job opportunities back in the Philippines have not improved.

An OFW’s best option is to renew their contract or seek another employer. As a result, they continue to be away from their families; they continue to be regarded as 2nd class citizens in their host countries; and they continue to be at the mercy of their employer.

I’m a Dad Now

In 2011, I became a dad. My daughter means the world to me. We play chess, thumb wrestle, and continuously try to prank each other. I watch her practice jiujitsu, do gymnastics, and tap dance. And during the school year, I help quiz her on spelling every week. She is a big part of my life.

Before COVID-19, I did my fair share of business travelling: Manila, Davao, Taipei, Tokyo, Hong Kong. Most of those trips last about 3 days, but I would try to shorten them as much as I can. Cause when I am the plane, about to take off, I miss my kid so much. And during the trip, I miss her even more and cannot wait to get back home. That is my state of mind on a 3-day business trip. Only 3 days.

A typical OFW has children. Their contract is usually for 2 years. 2 years away from their family and their children!

And as mentioned above, an OFW usually extends her contract when it is completed. 2 years become 4 years. 4 years becomes 10 years. 10 years becomes 20 years.

That is a real sacrifice and real heartbreak.

I have met OFWs in Singapore who started on a 2-year contract and have stayed in Singapore for nearly 20 years. In one case, an OFW left the Philippines a few months after she gave birth to her son. She would only see him for a few weeks during her bi-annual visits back home. She even missed seeing him graduate from high school. Her only comfort is that she knows her years of sacrifice and hard work contributed to his successful high school graduation.

This is sad. This is a shame. “Modern day heroes” should not have to suffer like this.

An OFW’s path to a successful repatriation back to the Philippines is not always a given and that is also sad and is a shame.

Let’s Change This

Yes, let us change this!

Let us think through the problems that an OFW face and help her leverage the 2-year contract (and all the sacrifice and hard work that goes into it) into a better life for her and her whole family.

Over the next 12 months, I will be publishing 6 articles, sharing my ideas and thoughts on how an OFW can stack-the=deck in her favor with tools to control her finances, supplement her income, participate in savings plans, build her credit rating, and upskill.

The articles will be “food for thought” on how we can lead a movement that results in an OFW landing back in the Philippines with a decent nest egg and hold down a good paying job or operate a sustainable business.

This OFW “journey” will banish the idea that being an OFW is a way of life. Instead, being an OFW should be a mere stepping stone to a better future.

In the next article, I will tackle the issue of responsible spending. Stay tuned.

BetherefoBatangas_2020 Celebration Package

How can I #BeThereForBatangas?

Taal Volcano erupted on January 12, 2020 which caused ash to spew in various provinces and areas including Calabarzon, Metro Manila, and Central Luzon. Communities within 14-km radius of the volcano have been forced to evacuate due to possible very dangerous eruption, ballistic projectiles, base surges, and volcanic tsunami following the eruption at any time. Alert Level 4 is still raised on Taal Volcano up to date.

Together, let’s join hands to aid the victims of Taal unrest. Become a part of the campaign today. Send a BeamAndGo 2020 Celebration package at www.BeamAndGo.com.

Sad truth: 5 Causes Of Cheating Among OFW Relationships

Nakaranas ka na ba ng cheating?

Yung tipong nung bago pa lang siya o ikaw mangibang bansa, okay naman kayo ng partner mo pero kinalaunan, nagkaka-labuan na?

office-lover-couple-is-walking-together-modern-city-train-station_39408-1726.jpgO baka may kilala kang nagpapanggap na single sa abroad kahit kasal na sa Pilipinas? Ginagawang libangan ang pagkikipag-chat sa iba hanggang sa mauwi na sa seryosohan?

Aminin man natin o hindi, kahit kanino nangyayari ito!
Masakit at mahirap iwasan, pero pwedeng solusyonan.

Cheating or infidelity has been cited as the greatest challenge for OFWs according to Davao Catholic Herald. At ano ang karaniwang kinahahantungan nito? Ang ibang pamilya, nagugulat na lang na hindi na nagpapadala ng pera si kabayan – or worse, ni wala nang paramdam. On the other hand, maya’t maya namang ubos ang padala ni kabayan dahil sa pagwawaldas ng pinapadalhan sa Pinas! Ni hindi na alam ni Kabayan kung ano ba talaga ang nangyayari at kung saan napupunta ang padala.

Ang tanong – BAKIT NANGYAYARI ITO? Pero ang mas dapat na masagot – PAANO ITO SOSOLUSYONAN?

Mahirap mang tanggapin, ito ang katotohanang pinagdaraanan ng karamihan sa ating mga kababayan. GISING! ‘Wag na nating paabutin sa ‘di magandang kahihinatnan! Your BeamerKada‘s got some TIPS for OFWs on why cheating happens and how to handle this issue on the premier episode of PAYONG KABIGAN!

OO! Pati ang pagsisinungaling pagdating sa pera-padala is another form of cheating na patuloy na binibigyang solusyon ng BeamAndGo! Kung ‘di mo pa nasusubukan, umpisahan mo na ngayon! Register for free at www.beamandgo.com and together, let us END CHEATING!

PAALALA lang, ha? Ito’y payong kaibigan.
