Apathy was cracked, and the result was outpouring generosity as various nations found common ground in this desire to help. This inspired Gawad Kalinga, together with its partners in government and in the private sector, to organize a response with the scale a disaster like Yolanda beckoned.

Mayor's Corner

Two Overseas Filipino Workers, including a town mayor, was recognized by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration-7 through an award that recognizes OFWs who promote good values and solidarity among their families that they have left in the Philippines.  The Model OFW Family of the Year Award (MOFYA) was conceptualized pursuant to the objective of giving due acknowledgment to the outstanding achievements of the OFWs in managing family challenges.

“MOFYA stemmed and inspired by the stories of the OFWs because some OFWs who leave their families behind made their families dysfunctional,” said Wilfreda Misterio, OWWA regional director. MOFYA has two categories, the Land-Based Category and the Sea-Based Category.Elmer Kitong, a master mariner, and his family, who are from Poblacion, Siquijor, Siquijor, bested three others in the Sea-Based Category. Daanbantayan Mayor Augusto Corro, a former drilling consultant abroad, and his family, who hails from Suba, Poblacion, Daanbantayan, also bested three other nominees in the Land-Based Category.
