Distressed OFW receives financial assistance

 In just a matter of months, several distressed Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the Kingdom have received financial assistance from their kindhearted compatriots in Jeddah.

Just last week during the opening of the Overseas Filipino Basketball League (OFBL), a Filipina who was allegedly abandoned by her husband almost a year ago received financial assistance from the players, audience members and organizers.

OFBL Chairman Salvador Boy Teves and the league’s commissioner Rocky Gil handed over SR1,400 to Mina (her name has been changed to protect her identity) donated by fellow Filipinos.

Teves expressed his happiness on the unselfish act of the people inside the basketball court.

“I was touched by their kindness and we are happy to be a part of this noble endeavor to help needy Filipinos in the kingdom.”

Teves said their doors for the needy are always open and helping people will always be a part of the OFBL’s program. Meanwhile almost 20 teams participated in the opening ceremony last Friday at Time-Out Olympic Court on Television Street.

Gil promised an exciting ballgame during Ramadan where Filipinos living in the industrial area will have extra time to watch the matches due to the shortened working hours.
