I read a lot of success stories of Filipinos who worked abroad. Most of the stories are about having a hard time dealing with homesickness and culture adjustment. Somehow the Filipino spirit is always there because of our kababayan who support each other like a family. That’s why OFs are considered as our modern heroes because they help our economy grow and help sustain their families when it comes to financial needs. So great that BDO Remit gives comfort to our Filipino overseas workers and migrants when it comes to sending money to their beloved ones via remittance.
The BDO Remit’s Pamaskong Handog 2019 was held last December 7, 2019, at the Mounting Wing Atrium of SM Seaside City Cebu. The event was a way of giving back and recognizing OFs of their trust and loyalty as BDO Kabayan Savings account holders. As we all know that overseas Filipino workers have great contributions to our economy because they send money to our country for their love ones. The holiday season is a great opportunity to honor and pay tribute to their hard work and sacrifices to provide the financial needs of their families. Through BDO Kabayan Savings, they can send money instantly without going to the remittance center. In its 8th year, the Pamaskong Handong was held separately as well in Davao and Pampanga this month with SM hosting the venues.
