OFW nanny in Middle East thanks generous employer


There are many reasons why Filipinos opt to work overseas. Some leave after gaining experience, others stay because of the various benefits they’re enjoying from the country and their employers. 

Mary Grace Maderse Uy, a household service worker in Kuwait for 10 years now, is very thankful for her generous employer. 

Her employers are not only kind to her, but they also extend help in sending her kids to school in the Philippines. 

She recalled accepting the job for a family in Kuwait with three sons. 

“Halos ako na nagpalaki. Napakabait at magalang na mga bata,” she was quoted as saying by 

She said she stays with her employers enjoying free stuff, getting her salary on time, and following what’s stipulated on the employment contract. 

“May day off po ako monthly, tama sa petsa ang psahod. Open sila sa family ko lalo na sa mga anak ko,” she added. 

One time, her employers gifted Mary Grace’s kids with a laptop and school supplies. 

“Approachable silang tao. In terms of my financial problems pag emergency mas approachable sila at handa ng tumulong lalo na sa pag aaral ng mga anak ko. Masasabi ko na npaka supportive tlaga nila,” she added. 

Mary Grace is also a proud mother because she was able to let her eldest finish college, and her second child is currently a second-year college student. She was also able to build her own house in a subdivision and procured two motorcycles. 

She also plans to settle back home when the time is right, but she would definitely miss her employers in Kuwait. 

“I’m very thankful kay Lord na 10 yrs ko nanatili sa kanila never ako ngkaroon ng problema. Pati natin sa ka mag anak an nila. Alam ko bihira makatagpo ng mga amo na kagaya nila lalo na dito sa bansang ito kaya napa mahal na rin sila sa akin at tinuturing ko silang pangalawang pamilya dito sa Kuwait. Pag dating ng araw na ako ay lilisan n sa kanila para mag for good talagang ma mi miss ko silang lahat,” she said. 

“Pag may birthday sila surprise na ginagawa ko sila ng cake at may pangalan pa nila at lagi bukang bibig nila salamat na kung saan nakakataba talaga ng puso. Tinuturing nila ako na hindi iba sa kanila. At kung ako naman ang may birthday may pa surprise rin sila,” she added.
