OFWs deserve better protection — Bp. Ruperto Santos
The overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) deserve to get the support and protection they deserve for their sacrifices and for their contributions to the Philippine economy, said Bishop Ruperto Santos.
Bishop Ruperto Santos, chairman of the Church’s Commission on Migrants and Itinerant People, said the OFWs are not just “modern day heroes” but “our blessings. To show our gratitude to them is to protect them and to promote their rights and dignity.
“To value their labors is to take care of remittances that this remittances will not be stolen, corrupted and misused for non essential or non existent government projects,” he said.
