Pinay in UAE who is suffering from salary deduction helps over 1,000 OFWs with groceries

-

A UAE-based Filipina has distributed more than 1,000 grocery packs to displaced OFWs despite experiencing a massive salary reduction.

Shiela Jane Capatan-Reyes, 33, was quoted as saying by The Filipino Times that she understands the struggle and hardships of Filipinos affected by the pandemic.

She revealed that she had her salary cut due to the economic impact of Covid-19 to the businesses. Her husband was also put into forced unpaid leave.

They have started delivering the grocery items straight to the doorstep of people in need.

“I was deeply heartbroken knowing that many of our Kababayan ay sobrang naapektuhan sa pandemic na ito lalong lalo na ang mga nawalan ng trabaho, naka-unpaid leave, stranded, at mga parents na biglang nawalan ng work at may mga anak na kasama dito. We wanted to be there on the time when needed the most, when people could not go out para makapag-abot ng tulong o makahingi ng tulong,” she added.

She also revealed that she was inspired to reach out to Filipinos in need by individuals who are also actively extending help.

“Nakapag abot na po tayo ng tulong to more than 1,000 distressed Filipinos in the region and the numbers are still counting,” Reyes said.

The Filipino Institute has also recently launched an online portal wherein displaced OFWs in the Middle can register to get free grocery packs as welll.
