OFW gets the result Unfit to work gets another medical for second opinion and stated she was fit to work...how does it happen?



Filipino applicants need to secure medical examination stated that you are fit to work abroad it is the most important requirement of all OFW around the world so as you can leave the country and work abroad.
Some applicants easily get positive results while others remain devastated as they receive an “unfit to work” certification.
Rachell Roxas got the most devastating medical examination result "unfit to work".
Roxas previously worked in Taiwan for seven years. She is the breadwinner of her family and also has two children who solely depends on her.
However, she had to return to the Philippines as her contract already ended last 2014.
A broker who handles her previous employer contacted Roxas and asked her to come back to Taiwan and worked again under the World Wiser Agency, who is also the one processing her requirements.
St. Peter-Paul Medical Clinic situated in Ermita to get the medical examination done. It was also the clinic suggested by her agency.
Roxas was asked to perform a medical examination. But the result was she is unfit to work, stated by the doctor of the clinic who performed the medical examination on her.
According to the medical examination, Roxas acquired tuberculosis making her unfit to work abroad, as confirmed by Dra. Cynthia Romero, her attending physician.
Roxas’ journey to acquire a medical certification didn’t end with that. She had a second opinion at the Lung Center of the Philippines.
Doctors, there has a different opinion. According to their expert physician, the x-ray shows only a small scar in her lungs, something that will never affect her pulmonary system and not even contagious
Doctors at the Lung Center of the Philippines confirmed that Roxas indeed is fit to work, travel or study.

She went to Mr. Ben Tulfo for help and assistance to prove that she is fit to work abroad and the St.Peter-Paul Medical Clinic is so unfair in giving a result of her unfit to work, which also happened to other applicants who conducted medical examination by them.

Roxas also told to Bitag that the Lung Center of the Philippines said that the St.Peter-Paul Medical Clinic already had a problem even before it should have to be close.

OFW Story: A sad story of a whole Family that where destroy by an itchy mistress


It's heartbreaking to see a family that's slowly falling apart. But sad to say it happens most of the time to OFW families because of infidelity.

Infidelity is not exclusive to families in the Philippines. There are a lot of Filipino workers abroad who are getting involved in a relationship despite having a family and children in the Philippines.
Most of them, homesickness is the reason, but no matter what it is, giving your children a broken home is unacceptable.
To add to the long list of broken OFW families, Facebook user EX Ortega shared her very own experience on her social media account.
According to Ortega, her husband first went to Saudi Arabia last 2009, intending to provide a better future for their kids.
Their communication was maintained until 2013. Her husband said that video call apps are blocked in Saudi. She instantly believed her husband, knowing that he is a member of Iglesia Ni Cristo.
It was then that their communication became seldom. However, Ortega, later on, found out that her husband has a Facebook account, one thing that he never told her.



It was then that she saw a Facebook user who kept on commenting on the photos of her husband. She sensed that something is wrong but still ignored that feeling because she trusted him.

2014 until 2017 husband still managed to return to them, she senses something wrong he never joined his family to church. Later on, she found out that he stopped going to church and lived with his mistress.

September 2018 he returned into the Philippines but not to his family but his parents in LaPaz.he bad-mouthed his wife and claimed that she is a total liar
They decided to break up and talked about allotment of their children at 1st he constantly sends money but later on, he stopped sending money to his children and refused to talk to them.

Ortega is staying strong for her children. Believing they will get through all of these troubles in life without his husband on their side

Taiwan government is concerned about the months-long pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong but will not intervene


Taiwan government is concerned about the months-long pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong but will not intervene, President Tsai Ing-wen said.

During a meeting with former Australian Defense Minister Christopher Pyne at the Presidential Office, Tsai said the government is concerned and closely watching the protests in Hong Kong as tension continues to escalate over a now-suspended bill that would allow the extradition of criminal suspects to China for trial.

She reiterated her urging that the Chinese government and Hong Kong's leaders should engage in dialogue with the protesters to resolve their differences.

However, President Tsai said the Taiwan government will not intervene in the affairs of Hong Kong, despite accusations to the contrary by Beijing.

She called on the Chinese and Hong Kong authorities not to engage into responsibility over the escalating tension and not to make wrong and regrettable decisions.

Since June, several rounds of protests have been held against the proposed bill, which has been suspended, but the demonstrations have since morphed into a wider movement calling for democratic reforms in the semi-autonomous territory.

There are two Hong Kong groups posted an advertisement on the front page of a Taiwanese newspaper. thanking the country for its support for the territory's democracy activists.

The advertisement also thanked President Tsai for her administration's willingness to offer helping hands to the Hong Kong people.

African swine fever ( ASF) has yet to be confirmed in the philippines


The presence of African swine fever (ASF) has yet to be confirmed in the Philippines, the country's office in Taiwan said.
 The Taiwan government tightened security in luggage travelers from the Philippines as a precaution against the disease.

While there is no confirmation as to the presence of ASF in the Philippines, MECO respects the prerogative of Taiwan authorities to raise an airport alert on baggage brought in by visitors from the Philippines, Angelito Banayo, Manila Economic and Cultural Office Chairman and the Philippines' representative to Taiwan, said.

His statement came after local media reported that suspected ASF outbreaks hit Bulacan and Rizal provinces in the Philippines, citing Taiwan's Central Emergency Operation Center for ASF.

As a result, passengers from the Philippines arriving at Taiwan's airports were subject to hand luggage checks for pork products.

From the very beginning of the ASF scare, MECO has been advising all Filipinos entering Taiwan of the ban on pork products and the penalties imposed by Taiwan authorities

Regarding the suspected outbreak of ASF, Banayo said the Philippines' Department of Agriculture is still conducting tests on the reported swine deaths and have yet to arrive at conclusive results on the presence of ASF in the country.

Taiwan has clamped down on pork products being brought into the country to prevent the disease, which is lethal to pigs and has no known vaccine or cure.
