OFW in Dubai who hasn’t received his salary for months now helps kabayans in need


An OFW based in Dubai who hasn’t received his salary for months now and on ‘no work no pay’ scheme has been actively helping his kabayans through distributing essentials.

Just like majority of employees in UAE, Andy Gregory Gomez’s company is also struggling to survive due to effect of Covid-19 in the business.

“Dahil naranasan ko din ang mawala ng trabaho at mawalan ng sahod, kaya ramdam ko ang mga kapwa ko OFW dito sa Dubai. Lagi ko ding naaalala ang payo ng lola ko na kapag may sobra ka kailangan mo tumulong sa iba. Ngayon, kahit wala akong sinasahod, sinusubukan ko pa ding tumulong sa mga kababayan ko, kasi alam ko ang pakiramdam nila,” he told The Filipino Times.

He started the initiative in late April with his friends, and to date, they have done three relief operations.

“Madalas po kami nagpapadala at namimigay sa mga naka-visit visa at mga nawalan ng trabaho. Kawawa po kasi sila dahil wala silang pang suporta para sa mga pamilya nila sa Pilipinas. Sila mismo ay hirap dito,” Gomez said.
