Strengthening Connections: The Impactful Kapihan at Kamustahan Event for Filipino OFWs in Kuwait

Kapihan at Kamustahan

Kapihan at Kamustahan in Kuwait.

In a heartfelt display of solidarity and support, Filipino Overseas Foreign Workers (OFWs) gathered at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Kuwait on March 1, 2024, for the much-anticipated Kapihan at Kamustahan event. This gathering, organized by the Philippine Embassy, served as a beacon of hope and empowerment for the Filipino community working tirelessly in Kuwait.

The event commenced with a spirit of gratitude as a Thanksgiving ceremony honored the dedication and hard work of OFWs, followed by an uplifting awards ceremony recognizing outstanding contributions and achievements within the community. However, it was the subsequent Kapihan at Kamustahan that truly captured the essence of unity and camaraderie among OFWs and embassy representatives.

Kapihan at KamustahanAt the heart of the Kapihan at Kamustahan was the Ambassador’s empowering message, delivered with sincerity and compassion, resonating deeply with all attendees. Emphasizing the importance of emotional, financial, and mental preparedness, the Ambassador provided invaluable guidance to OFWs facing the myriad challenges of working abroad. From navigating legal proceedings to accessing healthcare benefits, the comprehensive Q&A session addressed the pressing concerns of OFWs, fostering a sense of reassurance and support.

Crucially, the event shed light on the vital role of government agencies and programs in safeguarding the welfare of OFWs. From the Social Security System (SSS) to Pag-IBIG, and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), OFWs were reminded of the robust support systems available to them, ensuring their safety, security, and well-being while working overseas.

But beyond the practical assistance provided, the Kapihan at Kamustahan served as a lifeline for OFWs, offering a sense of belonging and community in a foreign land. In the midst of homesickness and isolation, the event provided a platform for OFWs to connect, share experiences, and draw strength from one another.

The significance of the Kapihan at Kamustahan extends far beyond a mere gathering—it symbolizes resilience, unity, and the unwavering spirit of the Filipino people. It is a testament to the enduring bond between OFWs and their homeland, a reminder that no matter the distance, they are never alone.

As we reflect on the impact of this event, let us not forget the sacrifices and hardships endured by OFWs in pursuit of a better future for themselves and their families. Let us honor their unwavering determination and commitment, and pledge to continue supporting and uplifting our Filipino heroes wherever they may be.
