There are a lot of reasons why Filipinos are working abroad. Whether it is your first choice or you are just forced to do so because of circumstances, there are a lot of reasons for being an OFW.
Leaving the country means detachment from your family members and being content with the occasional phone calls, instant messages, and SMS to get in touch with your families. It also means you are depriving yourself of guiding and watching your children grow up. You are also missing your favorite shows, joining the family during special gatherings, and many other things just to live a life abroad.
Some people are living in another country to work because of the high unemployment rate in the Philippines. With the fresh graduates increasing to the competition for jobs available, some people don’t have any choice but to work abroad. Plus, companies in other countries offer better salaries and benefits.
This was the reason that one of our Overseas Filipino Workers named Yalis Onairiotciv Echoreg have that is why she choose to work abroad. However, last March 8, she underwent an operation due to Acute Appendicitis in Qatif Hospital.

Upon her discharge last March 11, she started to move around. She was tasked to wash the dishes and sweep and mop the floors, even if her movements were very slow. Last March 16, she was asked to clean the bedrooms and bathrooms and iron clothes, even if her stitches still hurt.
According to Yalis, she is feeling dizzy and can feel her hands shaking. She cannot breathe properly too. All she wants now is to go home and take some rest.
