Ben Evardone wishes there won’t be OFWs anymore
He dreams of a day when Pinoys wouldn’t have to leave home for better work.
Eastern Samar Governor Ben Evardone met hundreds of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Moscow as he joined President Rodrigo Duterte’s delegation to Russia earlier this month.
While there, he met two Filipinas who hail from his hometown, and soon discovered they were distant relatives. Happy as they are abroad, the politiko hopes it would be temporary.
“I hope that some day Filipinos will no longer have to seek employment opportunities abroad, far away from their families,” Evardone said.
