“It’s time to go home, ma!” OFW for 20-years, Sinundo ng Kanyang Anak na Napagtapos sa Kolehiyo!

For most Filipinos, being an OFW is a promise of good life. You get to earn more than what you can earn here and you are now able to provide a better future for your family. On the other hand, not everyone is aware of the hard work and sacrifices you need to make to be able to give your family a comfortable life.



An inspiring story of an OFW who was able to support her children’s studies who are now all professionals. After 20 years of hard work and sacrifices, it’s all been paid off. She had brought up a licensed teacher, registered nurse, a pharmacist and midwife, a certified Public accountant, a civil engineer and registered master plumber, and soon to have an Information Technologist.Hans expressed his gratitude to all of the friends of his mother who stood with her in times of her financial problem. He also thanked Mr. Lee his mother’s employer and uttered how grateful for his kindness in granting cash advances to his mom in times of financial shortages.



Most importantly, hans expressed his heartily appreciation for this mother who worked hard for 20 long years just to give them better and successful lives. He said:

“it’s your graduation day, mama and it’s time to go home!” 

“We love you, mom!” he added. 

“It’s time to go home, ma!” 

Hans surprised his mother with an all-paid expense ASEAN trip for which Singapore is their first stop as a thanksgiving treats for his mother. Filipinos working overseas are not living the carefree life. Most of them have more than one job to make end meets and be able to send a bigger amount in their family back home. 



Many are letting go of their basic needs just to cover the expenses of their family. We hoped that this story will be an eye opener to all people how difficult it is for every OFW to be away from their family and later on, there will be a great compensation from all their sacrifices. 

His original post read: 

"Hi Ma, it’s time to go home! Finally, dumating na ang araw ng Graduation mo! I know excited kana at Susunduin na kita dahil overstaying kana dito sa Hongkong. I still remember I was still 6 years old nang iwan mo kaming pitong magkakapatid para makipagsapalaran dito sa HK to give us a better life and good education na paulit ulit mong sinasabi na yun lang maipapamana mo Sa aming magkkapatid. Galit na galit ako sayo noon ng iwan mo kami kasi diko pa naiintindihan lahat why you have to leave us. Di naging madali ang lahat para sa atin dahil maraming pagsubok ang dumaan at halos magkawatak watak pa tayo. I couldn’t imagine how hard it is for you makatanggap ng masasamang balita galing from Pinas habang nagpapakapagod ka. Di rin madali ang Nagpalipat lipat tayo ng tirahan at ng school. After 20 years of working hard and sacrifice heto na nagbunga narin ang pangarap mo para sa aming lahat. Look at us now, di mo namamalayan you already have produced an Certified Public Accountant, A Licensed Teacher, A Registered Nurse, A Pharmacist and Midwife, A Civil Engineer and Registered Master Plumber, and soon to have an Information Technologist. Looking back, di madali ang lahat para sa atin, marami tayong paghihirap na pinagdaanan. Sa pangungutang mo kung kani kanino para may pangtuition kami at sa laging pagadvance kay Mr. Lee na wala ka nang swinesweldo makabayad lang ng utang. Ma, we owe you a lot. Di kami makakarating kung nasaan man kami ngayon kung di dahil sayo. We are so blessed to have a mom like you na hindi sumuko sa amin. Di tayo pinabayaan ni Lord at andyan lang sya ginagabayan tayo para maging matatag at matupad ang pangarap mo para sa amin at ngayon may magandang buhay na at may masasayang pamilya na ang iba. Gusto ko din magpasalamat sa mga kaibigan ni mama na walang sawang tulungan sya sa hirap at sa ginhawa. The best po kayo Maraming Salamat! Kaya Ma, Today, your Graduation has come and finally you’ll be free from stress and work. In behalf of my siblings I am congratulating you! Job well done my mom! It’s been a long hard years kaya It’s time for you to enjoy life naman. Kaya before you go home for good, let’s have an ASEAN TRIP .All expense paid! We love you Mom! So First Stop, Singapore!"
