We really can’t measure the sacrifices made by our Overseas Filipino Worker OFW parents to give their children a better life. They go away, sacrifice the time they could spend with their children just to make sure that they live comfortably. And the homesickness they endure is unmeasurable.
One could only wish to be there physically for their child for a fact that they’re far away. And the child could only wish that her/his parents are there beside her.
An OFW father gifted himself to his child
Martin Flores Navarro, an OFW who works as a veterinary nurse in UAE surprises his child on Christmas by gifting himself. According to Martin, he was supposed to go home in December 2019. However, since both husband and wife work as an OFW. And he feels sorry for their child who would be left here in the Philippines for two years, Martin went on an early 45-day leave to surprise his child on Christmas.
