Each of us belongs to a barangay in the Philippines. The barangay which we belong to is a very special place. Most often, our extended family members live in the same barangay. We depend on our neighbors who depend on us in return. Interdependent, we help and look out for one another.
We celebrate birthdays, weddings, baptisms, fiestas, and other occasions in our barangay. In times of need, we help one another. We play, work, and worship mostly in our barangay. Thus, we are connected to one another.
It is our hope that all of us OFWs will feel connected to one another through our common experiences as overseas Filipino workers, as residents of our cyber-barangay – Barangay OFW.
