OFW who died at Beirut explosion planned to reunite with family next month


One of the overseas Filipino workers who died from the massive explosion in Beirut was planning to head back to the Philippines three years after she has not seen her family in flesh. 

Babylyn Serohijos is among the victims of the sudden explosion in Beirut last week that kills hundreds of individuals. 

She had the last conversation with her family last July 31. 

“Sa labas daw siya nagpapadala ng pera. Tapos nabalitaan na lag namin, nawala na ang ano nya, online,” Annie Serohijos, Babylyn’s mother, was quoted as saying by ABS-CBN News. 

According to her, they received a call from the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) about the demise of their family members Friday afternoon. 

“Sa kanya lang po kami umaasa. Tapos ngayon, hindi na namin makikita. Ang hirap tanggapin. Tapos hindi nakikipag-cooperate and amo niya,” she added. 

Babylyn is the breadwinner of the family and a single parent to two kids. Her eldest is only 11, while her youngest is 4. 

“Hiling namin kung maari mauwi ang anak namin na buo. Para sa anak niya,” Pedro Serhijos, Babylyn’s father, said. 

“UUwi sana na ngayong September tapos iyon pang nangyari. Ang anak niya, magkikita na sila. Mahirap tanggpin,” Annie added.
