MANILA, Philippines- Netizens were moved by a tearjerking footage of an overseas Filipino worker dad saying goodbye to his 5-year-old daughter at Davao International Airport. The video shared by Facebook user Icar Yves Buchorno Perdido has taken social media by storm amassing more than 5 million views and nearly 200,000 shares on Facebook.
According to Perdido, her young daughter cried hysterically at the airport knowing that her father was about to leave the country to work abroad. Perdido’s daughter knew that her father was going to be away for a long time so she asked her dad take her with him. Although Perdido’s husband tried to comfort their daughter, the young girl continued pleading and ended up telling him that he didn’t love her.
Perdido’s son was also seen in the video kissing and hugging his father.
“Heartbreaking moment of my daughter and husband at Davao International Airport .Eto talaga ang nakakalungkot sa mga OFW parents pag bumabalik na sa ibang bansa. I hope one day in Duterte’s administration, Filipinos will no longer need to work abroad instead dito na mag trabaho sa sariling bansa natin,” wrote in the caption of the viral video.
The pitiful scene touched the hearts of many Filipinos particularly OFWs and their children who claimed that they have also experienced the same plight.

How Duterte Helped OFWs in His First 100 Days
With millions of OFW supporters, Duterte fulfilled his campaign promise of improving services for OFWs in his first 100 days in the office. On August 15, the government opened a one-stop-shop for OFWs, a first of its kind, at the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration’s main office in Mandaluyong City. The One-Stop Service Center for OFWs (OSSCO) aims to reduce transportation expenses and shorten the processing time of documents of OFWs.
According to Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III, the government will also set-up one-stop centers in all regions.
