For decades now, Overseas Filipino Workers, undeterred by loneliness and the difficulties of being far away from home, have been working tirelessly to make life easier for their remittance-dependent families. In the process, our modern-day heroes have been providing a massive boon to the Philippine economy.
And when Covid-19 unexpectedly hit the country in 2020, sending businesses and industries reeling from quarantines and intermittent lockdowns, it was our migrant laborers that helped bail us out through the money they sent to loved ones back home.
This is validated by data recently released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) disclosing that OFW remittances grew by 4.4 percent to $3.06 billion in June 2022 from $2.94 billion in the same month last year.
Such a gratifying development came at a cost, however. As Covid-19 ravaged the global populace from 2020 through 2021, our overseas workers suffered from border restrictions that resulted in deferred vacations and homecomings. Those that did manage to come home had to hurdle stringent government-mandated protocols.
Today, with the virus currently contained, hordes of OFWs are understandably raring to fly home and spend time with their loved ones. Those who have completed their job contracts are looking forward to quiet retirement in the old hometown.
For the substantial number of returnees from the Eastern Visayas, a region that leads in the deployment of OFWs, reuniting with their loved ones means ensuring a better, safer, and more secure life for them.
