(MENAFN - Arab Times) The Triskelion International of Kuwait (TISOK), living up to its mission of public service, organised during the weekend and reachout event for over 60 distressed Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who are staying temporarily at the Filipino Workers Resource Centre (FWRC) at the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO) in Faiha



The event hosted by the dynamic duo Joffrey Galvan and Lhey Lorenzo commenced with a prayer led by Peachy Villan followed by the welcome remarks of TISOK Chairman Mark Patron. "We are very happy to be with you today and spread some cheers. We would like you to forget all your problems even just for a brief moment. Never lose hope and with God's help and grace, we know that you will clear all the hurdles on your way," shared Patron to the wards.



ISOK founding officer and adviser Corazon Bouchebl also delivered an inspirational speech before the wards, urging them to never give up on life. "You have to keep the faith. Once you get back to the Philippines, you can start anew. Learn from your experience in working abroad and try your best to build your life again together with your family," she stated. She also thanked the POLO-OWWA and the Philippine Embassy for giving TISOK a chance to hold the eachout event. Most of the wards escaped from their employers and sought refuge at the FWRC after experiencing various forms of physical, verbal, sexual abuses, fatigue and non-payment of salaries. They are all waiting for their repatriation to the Philippines with the help of the Philippine Embassy and the Kuwait Ministry of Interior




To break the ice, TISOK held a dance competition among the wards with representatives from Luzon. Visayas and Mindanao Group. Winners in the dance competition were given gift vouchers courtesy of Tag Cargo. The crowd broke into cheers with the entrance of the Jollibee mascot casting a festive mood. Everyone danced to the beat of the music. The brief programme was followed by the distribution of gifts to the wards and dinner buffet. "We would like to thank the officers and members of TISOK for their generosity and for being with us today," quipped the wards. TISOK founding member and founder of OFW Radio Mario Pulvida delivered the closing remarks as he wished everyone good luck



The Tau Gamma Phi is one of the largest fraternities in the Philippines with about 700,000 registered members while TISOK has more than 100 members and is one of the most active Filipino organizations in Kuwait
