his video depicts the typical life of an overseas Filipino and an overseas Filipino family searching for a gainful family life through remittances from abroad. This will enlighten the public about who are the country's major economic saviors and what sacrifices do they face.

Filipino professionals spent´╗┐ so much effort and money to get college education just to find work abroad due to limited job opportunities and inadequate salary in the country. Most OFWs live half of their lives in foreign country and majority ends up becoming citizen of that country to acquire the citizen's benefits. Meanwhile, their families become lazy and over-dependent on the money they receive from abroad and the consumption of foreign goods is lowering the economic development.

karamihan sa ating mga OFW ay mga iniiwan ng ASAWA, babae man o lalaki. Marami ang nasisirang pamilya o tahanan. Nagkakahiwalay dahil sa sinasabi nilang dahilan ang "TUKSO" o nahuhulog sa iba dahil sa sobrang pangungulila, o kaya'y dahil sa silay TAO lang, mahihina.

Pero hindi naman lahat ng nasa pinas ang laging nang-iwan. Kadalasan Yung mga nasa ABROAD din naman. Pero bakit ganun pag may magtanong laging ang nasa pilipinas ang may kasalanan, na minsan ang mga OFW rin naman nahuhulog sa kapwa nila OFW at nakalimutan na may naiiwang sariling pamilya..

Kaya PROUD ako sa mga OFW na nanatiling matatag ang pamilya sa kabila ng DISTANSYANG nakapagitan sa kanila dahil nakahanda silang magsakripisyo pati ang sariling kaligayahan at pangangailangan at laging iniisip ang kapakanan ng pamilyang naiwan. :)

According to wikipedia, around 9.5 million to 12.5 million overseas Filipinos are the estimated count worldwide or about 11% of the total population of the Philippines as of 2010.

More than a million Filipinos try their luck each year to work abroad through overseas employment agencies and other programs, including government-sponsored initiatives. A majority of them are women applying as domestic helpers and personal service workers. Others emigrate and become permanent residents of other countries. Overseas Filipinos often work as doctors, physical therapists, nurses, accountants, IT professionals, engineers, architects,entertainers, technicians, teachers, military servicemen, seafarers, students, caregivers, domestic helpers, fast wood workers especially in the middle east and maids.

The exodus includes an increasing number of skilled workers taking on unskilled work overseas, resulting in what has been referred to as a brain drain, particularly in the health and education sectors. Also, the exodus can result in underemployment, for example, in cases where doctors undergo retraining to become nurses.
