With the POEA estimating at least 220,000 Overseas Filipinos and a growing need for nurses and caregivers in the UK, more and more Filipinas every year are making the choice to leave the country to create a brighter future for their loved ones back home.  

“Filipinos are a close-knit community. We value our family ties more than anything in the world. As a full-time working mom who needs to travel frequently, I know the hardest part for a Filipina in working overseas is being away from family and kids.  And to a mother, there’s nothing more fulfilling and telling of one’s hard earned success than the graduation of her child,” said Patricia Riingen, senior vice president, Southeast Asia & Oceania, Western Union. 

Western Union ‘Mother’s Pride’ aims to amplify this affection.  It is also our tribute to a mother’s love,” Riingen added.



The Western Union® Mother’s Pride contest runs until March 24, 2014.  For more information, please visit http://www.westernunion.co.uk/WUmothersprideTerms and conditions apply.
