THE Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (Owwa) in Central Visayas will celebrate the OFW Family Day in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental on December 7, 2019.
The event aims to provide an avenue for the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and their families to bond and strengthen their ties and enjoy the Christmas season with their loved ones. It is also held every December to recognize the OFWs valuable contribution to the country’s development.

It will be a whole day of fun, entertainment, exciting raffle prizes and special treats for the OFW families, said Owwa in a press release.
