Overseas Filipino Workers have different reasons why they choose to fly from the Philippines to another country to work. Most of them would admit that they choose to work abroad to earn a larger income and provide for their families.
OFWs are known as modern-day heroes because of their sacrifices for their families. Most parents choose to leave their homes to send their children to better schools and provide better for their future. They are enduring the physical and emotional suffering overseas as they want to give a better life for their family.
Recently, Facebook group Labstore shared an emotional graduation video that is making everyone cry. On the said viral video, two students are expressing their heartfelt gratitude to their mothers who are later revealed as Filipino migrant workers. These honor role students are giving out and personally hanging their medals on their mothers.
Like other proud parents, the two mothers are very emotional and are crying as their children commemorate their hard work and sacrifices by working abroad.
Made Netizens Cry
Many netizens could not help but feel very emotional while watching the video. Some parents who are also working as OFWs shared that they have children who are graduating this year. Unfortunately, many of them were not allowed by their employers to go home and witness their children’s graduation.
