    VP Leni meets with OFWs in Hong Kong

    Office of the Vice President

    16 July 2017

    Vice President Leni Robredo met with Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Hong Kong on Sunday (July 16). As part of the Office of the Vice President’s Istorya ng Pag-Asa program, VP Leni sat down with several Filipino domestic helpers working in Hong Kong to talk about their trials, tragedies, and triumphs.

    “Nagiinterview tayo ng mga OFWs na kababayan natin na pwede natin i-feature iyong kwento nila sa Istorya ng Pag-Asa. Kasama ko iyong iba ngayon, napaka-inspiring ng mga kwento,” VP Leni said. “Sabi ko maghahanap lang ako ng tatlo, pero parang napakarami iyong mga kwento ng mga struggles nila, na nagtratrabaho sa ibang bansa, talagang nagbunga ng napakaganda, na hindi lang para sa sarili nila, pero para sa pamilya nila.”

    The problems faced by OFWs—not only in Hong Kong but across the globe—range from burdensome employment requirements, to abusive employers. VP Leni referred to OFWs as the Philippines’ “unsung heroes,” whose stories of hope and struggle deserve to be highlighted. In turn, the OFWs she met with expressed happiness at being able to share their stories with her.

    “At tuwang-tuwa sila na nabigyan sila ng pagkakataon at tingin ko, iyong mga kanilang kwento, talagang kwento ng kabayanihan. Iyong pinagdaananan nilang kahirapan ay hindi talaga matatawaran,” VP Leni said.

    VP Leni previously visited Hong Kong along with running mate Mar Roxas during the 2016 election campaign, when they also met with several OFW organizations.

    The full interviews conducted by VP Leni will be aired next Sunday (July 23) on Biserbisyong Leni, a radio show she co-anchors with Ely Saludar on DZXL 558.
