- A group of Filipino bikers in the Middle East extends help to fellow Filipinos
- They gather together on chosen dates to act like a "welcoming" committee to new OFWs
- As months passed, more OFWs approach the group for assistance
It's not easy being an OFW, especially if it would be the first time that you leave your family to work in a foreign land.
In the Middle East where the culture, language and religion are different from that of Filipinos, living can become difficult.
Thankfully, there are some Filipinos who give support to other Filipinos, especially to those who may be regarded as a newbie OFW.
One such group is the Al-Ain folding and Mountain Bike (AFMTB). This group has made it easier for many OFWs in transitioning from their lives in the Philippines, to that of one in the Middle East.
The group nurtured and inculcated a healthy lifestyle in each of their members, encouraging Filipinos to participate in biking activities.
This allowed them to reach great distances and to form a strong community of Pinoys who would be on the lookout for each other in a foreign land.
Aside from the bond that they have forged with "kababayans," the group also prompts Pinoys to set goals and to aim to achieve greater things in life.
