This is a testimonial of a Filipino Family who decided to migrate to New Zealand. This is not very unusual, most Filipinos want to leave beloved Philippines to find a greener pasture, and live a better life.
If you don't know the how life goes on in the Philippines, you might be asking why? If you do know, you will be able to understand the exodus of Filipinos out of their country. This is the very reason why there are about eight ( 8 ) million Overseas Filipino Workers are spread out worldwide.
Not all fate though are created equal. Some succeed, some are not lucky enough and some even have to lose their lives. If only the Philippine government provides just a little bit of concern to their citizens through creation of job opportunities then its poor citizenry will not even think of leaving their own country. If they do, probably, it will only for pleasure and not to earn a living.
