Charo Santos will soon host a new talk show focused on overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and how they strive to build a financially secured future for themselves and their families.
In a report by ABS-CBN News published yesterday, May 12, Santos revealed that she will be engaging with OFWs on the show "Shine on Overseas Pinoy,” which she says is a “different experience” from her role in the long-running drama anthology "Maalaala Mo Kaya” (MMK).
"Sa 'MMK,' nagbabasa ako ng liham ng ating mga Kapamilya. Inilalahad ko ang kanilang kuwento sa mga manonood. Dito naman sa 'Shine On Overseas Pinoy' binigyan ako ng pagkakataon na makipag-usap sa ating mga kababayan na nagtatrabaho in other parts of the world at also to have a chance to explore all the financial possibilities with experts in financial management," she explained.
"There's lot more real-time engagement dahil kausap mo sila, nararamdaman mo sila, nakikinig ka sa kanilang kuwento. Iba naman siya, ibang experience," she added.
In the show, Santos will feature an OFW together with a financial expert to tackle and discuss their financial challenges, come up with possible solutions backed up with expert financial advice.
"We had the chance to talk to some select OFWs at nagkuwento sila ng kanilang journey towards their financial management, and stability and insurance for a good future,” she detailed.
She continued, "Karamihan naman ng mga kababayan natin ay talagang naghahanap ng matinong trabaho, nag-uuwi ng sweldo at nangangarap ng mas magandang buhay para sa kanila at sa mga mahal nila sa buhay. Pero wala silang tools, eh.”
"Sana itong programa ay makapagdala ng tunay na appreciation sa paghihirap at pagtitiis ng OFWs,” she added.
As a joint project of Sun Life and The Filipino Channel, “Shine on Overseas Pinoy” will premiere this Sunday, May 14, on TFC Cable and Satellite, IPTV on Demand and Live Feed, iWantTFC, and on Kapamilya TFC Facebook Pages.
The show, consisting of 13 episodes, will air every Saturday and Sunday in the Asia Pacific and Europe, Middle East, and Africa regions.
