Internet bringing OFWs closer to home on Christmas

Thanks to the internet, Christmas spirit is reaching Filipinos abroad who are missing their loved ones in the Philippines.
According to Jam Sisante's report on "Unang Balita" on Monday, many OFWs spent Christmas Day talking with their families in the Philippines through the internet.
"Iba ang saya, mas feel mo ang saya tsaka yung spirit of Christmas pag kumpleto ang pamilya," said Glaiza Dalbert, who is based in Norway and who hasn't been home in two years.
Dalbert's mother, Anita Dakal-Dakal, said she misses her daughter, moreso her grandkid who she has yet to see personally.
"'Di ko pa nakita sa personal yung apo ko," she said, as she credited the internet for, in a way, bringing her daughter and grandkid closer to her on Christmas Day.
The same goes to siblings Carl Joshua, John Clarence and Charles Jerome Cunanan, whose parents are both OFWs in Kuwait.
The report said the siblings' father, Jimmy, has been an OFW in Kuwait for two decades before their mother followed him there two years ago.
Like the other children of OFWs, the siblings' wish is to spend Christmas with their parents. —KBK, GMA News
