Many overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) have been displaced and repatriated because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, many have been stuck in international airports, waiting for their entry back to the Philippines. Recently, BDO Remit gives away face masks and hygiene kits to some OFWs at the Macau International Airport. It’s just one of their efforts to help ease the burden of the pandemic among OFWs.
A Reminder to Stay Safe
We now have caution exhaustion–a new term about getting sick and tired in staying safe.
But this is the new normal–the new world order that we are living in. So we cannot do anything about it but be careful when we are out there. In order to survive, we have to go to work and buy our necessities as well.
For OFWs, it’s flying to and from their countries of work from the Philippines. We all need to stay safe so we have to do everything to protect ourselves and our loved ones from the virus.
BDO Remit Gives Out Reminders to OFWs
BDO Remit is the remittance service brand of BDO Unibank and they have always been thankful for the contribution of OFWs to the country.
In coordination with government agencies, the staff braved the pandemic to help distribute health kits to overseas Filipinos.
BDO Remit gives out face masks and health kits in order to remind our OFW kababayans about staying safe amidst the continuing COVID-19 scare. It is also a small token of appreciation for what they do for their families as well as the Philippines.
