Paskuhan sa OWWA 2012: Share & Donate

This was from my friend Jen Arellano.. Read on:




From Jen Arellano:

Christmas is one of the most awaited day of the year for every Christians aside from celebrating the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ , this is also the time to extend our hand to our fellows who are in need. Its the time of giving, sharing and reaching out.

Hindi lahat ng nasa abroad mayayaman, hindi po lahat magaganda ang naging kapalaran at katatayuan. Maaring 'pag narinig nating OFW ang unang pumapasok sa isip ng ay dollar, chocolates, gadgets, out of the country at kung ano-ano pang mga material things but on the other face its different. Nakakalungkot pong isipin pero may mga kababayan tayo na hindi naging maganda ang kapalaran sa paghahanap ng magandang kinabukasan for their families. May iba sa kanila inutang pa ang mga ginamit na pera para makapangibang bansa, ang iba naman ipinagpalit ang mga trabaho sa Pilipinas sa pagnanasang kumita ng mas malaki at mapaganda ang buhay ng kanilang pamilya.


It's my 5th year this 2012 to participate in reaching out our distressed kababayans who are under the custody of OWWA, Doha Qatar.

I personally heard their stories and witnessed how they struggling in staying here away from their families. I witnessed how they cry when somebody is comforting them, giving foods and assured them that they are love and there is hope - that someday they can be with their family again.

Nakita ko ang mga pasa, sugat at luha na dala ng bawat pasakit na natamo nila sa mga malulupit na kamay ng mga amo nila. Narinig ko sa kanila personally ang mga kwento ng hinagpis at hirap na dinanas nila, kung paano sila pahirapan at abusuhin ng mga ibang lahing pinagsilibihan naman nila ng may katapatan. Ang mga kwento na halos di sila pinapakain sa buong araw, mga gabi na di sila nakakatulog dahil sa takot na maaring anytime pasukin sila sa mga kwarto nila, mga pagkakataon na sila na ang minaltrato ngunit sila pa ang isusumbong sa mga police at babaligtarin ang kwento at sila ang ipapahamak.

Ilan lang po yan sa mga kwento na personal kong narinig nong mga nagdaang taon buhat mismo sa mga labi ng ating mga kababayan na nasa pangangalaga ng OWWA.
And from then on, I told to myself if I can do something for them - I will.

We are very bless na normal ang buhay natin bagaman nasa ibang bansa tayo meron tayong kalayaan na hindi tinatamasa ng iba nating kababayan.

Christmas is approaching again, lumalamig na naman po ang simoy ng hangin para iba sa atin enjoy tayo kasi it indicates na malapit na ang Pasko, winter na, masarap matulog or magstay lang sa bahay kasama ang family natin while eating or watching movies, pero kung iisipin po natin paano kaya ipagdiriwang ng mga kakabayan natin sa OWWA ang Pasko nila?

This coming December 20, 2012 BE WITH US in GIVING LOVE, SHARING YOUR BLESSINGS, and REACHING OUT.

Ano man pong maipagkakaloob nyo para sa ating mga kababayan ay malugod at may galak po naming tatanggapin at lubusan po kayong umasa na ito ay makakarating sa kanila.

At this time, we don't have the exact numbers of our kababayans who are in OWWA custody, but we are hoping that their numbers will be lessen (meaning many of them will be home this Christmas).

You can donate any of the following:
• used clothes, shoes, bags (even travelling bags/trolleys) in good condition
• toilettries like bath soap, shampoo, sanitary napkins, deodorant, etc.
• foods - canned goods, noodles or if your heart's desire to give food for the event (sandwich, pansit/spaghetti, chicken, ice cream, pizza, pastries, etc.)
• blankets, towels, jackets or anything that will help them to ease the coldness of winter season.

You can give your LOVE and TIME by being with us on the main event too.

The donation campaign will run from this day until December 19, 2012.
