And the winner of a BMW luxury car goes to a Filipina in Dubai, UAE.
Never in the wildest dream of this Filipino expat,
“I’m very blessed and extremely happy,” says Florinza Santos. The Filipina also confirmed that she will be selling the car so she can return to the Philippines, build a home and start a small business.
Santos, who is from the northern region of Ilocos Norte, joined the UAE Exchange’s raffle promo last December 7. It is expected that three more lucky entries will be picked to take home the luxury car in the next few weeks.
This is not the first time that a Filipino won an extravagant award in a raffle draw or contest in UAE. Just recently, a Filipina nanny was also declared as the best nanny in the country, taking home loads of rewards and one million pesos.
It’s really nice to think that OFWs are being awarded for their hard-work and gets the much-needed appreciation from foreign nationals whom they have dedicated their lives on serving.
