The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has launched a video titled, “We Salute You”, to pay tribute to the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who have been working courageously alongside Singaporeans, to help keep Singapore running during COVID-19.

Recognizing the difficulty that OFWs feel while separated from their families, the video features five Filipino unsung heroes who have been contributing to Singapore’s COVID-19 response, and heartfelt messages from their families back home, sending them strength and words of encouragement.

Joan Valerio, Reservations Executive at the PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road, assists in providing accommodations to stranded foreigners in Singapore. As an OFW, she has had to momentarily leave her two kids behind – both of whom are understanding and proud of all her sacrifices.

“We appreciate the fortitude and dedication that our Filipino friends in Singapore have shown during these trying times. STB wanted to express our thanks by providing something most valuable to our Filipino friends – hearing words of motivation and encouragement from their loved ones. Through this video, we salute you, and look forward to the day we can emerge safely from this together,” said John Conceicao, Singapore Tourism Board Executive Director for Southeast Asia.

At once moving and uplifting, “We Salute You” reminds us that no matter where they are in the world, OFWs continue to be a source of pride and inspiration for those back home in the Philippines. Thus, the Singapore Tourism Board acknowledges and honors their efforts with the following message in the video, “Saludo kami sa galing niyo [We salute you for your expertise and dedication].”
