Can You Imagine What’s the World Like If There Were No Filipinos?

You can find Filipinos all over the world, working in various fields – from menial jobs to high-paying executive positions. What foreign employers really love about Filipinos is that they know how to speak English and can easily adapt to the work they have to do. It is also an added bonus that Filipinos are hardworking and know how to deal with various situations.

In the hospitals across the world, particularly in the US, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and many parts of Europe, you will find a lot of Filipino nurses and other medical staff, including doctors and medical technologists.

It would be rare to find a ship that doesn’t have at least one Filipino crew! And many households in the UAE, Hong Kong, and Singapore have Filipino domestic helpers and nannies. Even jobs like drivers, welders, and janitors are handled by Filipinos in many of these countries.

Can you imagine what it would be like if there were no Filipinos?

Review center owner, Dr. Carl E. Balita, shared a now viral video he entitled, “Imagine a World Without the Philippines”. In this clip, he highlighted many of the strong qualities that Filipinos have.

Aside from those mentioned above, Balita also pointed out that Filipinos aren’t just great as workers but are also great in other fields. For instance, the Philippines holds the most number of crowns in the top international beauty pageants – and the country probably has the most number of contestants that got into the Top 10 in all these events.

There are also many famous Filipinos in various fields, including Manny Pacquiao, Lea Salonga, Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes, and so many others. Plus, the Philippines has awesome spots that attract millions of tourists each year.

Indeed, the Philippines might be a small country but it holds a big spot in the world. Isn’t that amazing? Check out this video and tell us what you think:
