Migrants' Stories, Migrants' Voices 7


The Philippine Migrants Rights Watch (PMRW), with support from the '8xmille' funds from the Italian Catholic Church (CEI), launched the seventh volume of its book, “Migrants’ Stories, Migrants’ Voices.” It is a collection of stories of migrants, Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and members of their families. It talks about the different faces of migration and the challenges migrants and members of their families had to go through abroad and in the Philippines. It speaks of how migrants faced the challenges of being in a foreign land and how families left behind coped with the absence of their family members. The unique feature of this volume is that it centered on the experiences of migrants and members of their families during the pandemic.

Here's a video presentation of Migrants' Stories, Migrants' Voices 7
