As we grow older, we don’t only think of the basic things that our families need in the meantime, we think of the future- on how we can provide more for the sake of giving them better lives.

Same goes for all OFWs that are risking their lives to work outside their country and give all their best efforts to earn more and give all the support that they can give to their families they’ve left behind.
