As an Overseas Filipino Worker, you might already suffered from homesickness, most especially during holidays or special events like graduation. Instead of celebrating and having fun with your loved ones in the Philippines, you need to sacrifice your own happiness to give them a comfortable life.
Most of the time, we are already contended with the occasional video calls, a constant exchange of Facebook messages, and by looking at the photos they upload on social media.
Unfortunately, not every parent or family working as an OFW can sacrifice for their family. Others choose to leave their loved ones behind for their own happiness.
Take this story of Ronelia Galzote, a former OFW in Saudi Arabia, as an example.After hearing that his wife is already back in the Philippines after working as a domestic helper in Saudi Arabia, Abelardo Galzote Jr. asked help from Raffy Tulfo through his program Aksyon to contact Ronelia.
According to Abelardo, a concerned friend informed him that Ronelia immediately went back to the country. However, instead of going back to her family, she went to her supposedly new flame – a lesbian lover.
Luckily, after watching the show Raffy Tulfo, the OFW sent a message to her husband.
During the second part of the interview through Wanted the Radio, Ronelia explained that she immediately returned to the Philippines since she might get deported from working in Saudi Arabia.
She also said that she sacrificed enough for the family: She worked for seven years just to provide her kids with a better life.
The former OFW also said that she’s not in a relationship with Doods Leah and that Doods Leah is only helping her get back to her feet.
The main reason why she chooses to break her marriage with Abelardo is that she’s being beaten by her husband and he is always accusing her that she is sleeping with other men.
However, one of Raffy Tulfo’s staff, Producer Odette, who is also a part of the LGBT community, exclaimed that she feels that Doods and Ronelia are in a relationship.
Did It End Well With the Former OFW And Her Family?
Thanks to Raffy Tulfo’s persuasion and their daughter’s wishes, Ronelia was convinced to go back to her family and four children. After the show ended, they went back to their house in Ilocos.
Unfortunately, after a week, Raffy Tulfo and his crew were informed that Ronelia left her family again and cannot be contacted anymore.Her children also said that they often see their mother using her smartphone and talking someone on the phone.
Because of what happened, the family just choose to stay together, even without their mother. The children also expressed their love for their father, who still supports and love them unconditionally.Prepare your tissues before watching the video here:
