Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) has been working hard to fulfill its goal of serving our OFWs. In line with these, various events are being held on a regular basis to ensure the satisfaction of our generations�� heroes.

OWWA Administrator Carmelita S. Dimzon launched the 2009 edition of Hatid Saya at the Mall of Asia SMX venue where this year's Labor Day celebration was held.

Through the Hatid Saya road show, the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration brings a troupe of celebrities to spread cheer and entertainment to thousands of overseas workers deployed in foreign shores.

This year, Hatid Saya is slated to present performances by music artists, comedians and matinee idols in the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Guam Spain, Oman and Qatar, in cooperation with private sector sponsors and partners.

Administrator Dimzon says that bringing Hatid Saya abroad "is something that will mean a lot to our workers overseas."

For OFWs toiling away and bearing the loneliness in a foreign land, "the show will be a welcome get-together amidst a homey atmosphere of music, fun and games," Dimzon adds.

"In terms of entertainment value, no amount of movie or DVD video can match the impact and immediacy of a live show packed with lots of festive interaction featuring our popular homegrown celebrities."

Even if just for a day, says Dimzon, "OFWs will be able to soak up the warmth of being in the company of their entertainment idols. It will be great morale boost, something that will fill their conversations and memories until the next Hatid Saya comes around again."
