broken bodies

Overseas Filipino Workers have always held a special place in my heart. I have witnessed so much of their hardship through my stay abroad and as I watched my mom coming to their aid - in the Middle East particularly.

I consider myself lucky that I am part of the more blessed OFWs with a legitimate working contract and a resident permit in Switzerland.

I honour all those OFWs who have stayed away from their families for so long and have eked out a living sacrificing their own loneliness to send enough for their families to live comfortably back home.

For all those OFWs, this is my little tribute:

Broken bodies
Broken lives
Broken spirits
for a family back home
in tact.
