SM Supermalls, in partnership with BDO, celebrated PamaskongHandog Para Sa Global Pinoy with 10,000 Overseas Filipino Workers and their families on December 7, 2013.
Mounted in selected SM Malls nationwide, Global Pinoy members and BDO Kabayan Savings account holders, together with their families, were treated to special screenings of ABS-CBN Star Cinema films, and celebrity meet and greet sessions with Piolo Pascual, Xian Lim, and Kim Chiu.
Each event was capped off with a testimonial from an invited OFW who shared his or her experience working abroad, away from loved ones.
Weng Orminita, an OFW from Libya and a BDO Kabayan Savings account holder expressed her thanks to the organizers of the event after her sharing, saying she felt deeply honored and celebrated.
Now on its second year, Pamaskong Handog Para Sa Global Pinoy is organized through SM Cares, which was founded to help guide OFWs and their families through the challenges of working or having a loved one work overseas. To serve the OFW’s and their families better, SM Cares established Global Pinoy Centers in 35 of its malls.
