Two OFWs in Dubai choose to celebrate birthday by helping jobless kabayans


Two overseas Filipino workers in Dubai have chosen to help their kabayans who are currently jobless by giving out free hot pack meals along Al Rigga in Deira, Dubai.  

Duba-based close friends Rosaline Baylosis and Angelo Catolico celebrated their birthdays in June. 

Baylosis who works as an administrative officer at a construction company and also an award-winning photographer celebrated her birthday on June 28, while Catolico works as a customer care specialist by day and musician during his free time. 

“For the past two years, we’ve been celebrating our birthday together since it falls in the last week of June. Usually, we would hold parties with friends and acquaintances. But due to the pandemic, we have decided to give away the food package with other people instead, especially those in need,” Baylosis was quoted as saying by GMA News Online. 

The relief project ‘Pancit for Long Life’ consists of basic ingredients for pancit bihon with chicken.
