OFW in Hong Kong: A mother's Christmas story
The following text is from the Philippine National Bank
MANILA, Philippines – Christmas in the Philippines is one of the happiest – from simbang gabi to bibingka, puto bumbong, and the twinkling parol.
However, for the millions of Overseas Filipino Workers around the globe, this may be the loneliest time of the year as Christmas is spent alone in a foreign land away from their loved ones.
Miriam Carpio, 53, has been an OFW in Hong Kong for 17 years. While she has worked hard to provide for her family , she had to endure several Christmases away from them, only able to surprise them from afar with Christmas gifts sent through balikbayan boxes.
This Christmas, it’s Miriam's turn to receive the biggest surprise of her life from Philippine National Bank (PNB) and Philippine Airlines (PAL).
Witness how this has brought joy and happiness to the Carpio family. – Rappler.com
