Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are our fellow countrymen who are working in different countries all over the world. Some of these Filipinos choose to leave their own families to try their luck abroad, while some are left with no other choice but to leave for their families to have something to eat.
While some OFWs have families and children in the Philippines, there are also some of them who go overseas even when they are still single. Some of these OFWs find it hard to be away from their loved ones that they choose to find company while they are at a faraway place online.
