SORSOGON UNITED

When we unite, We make our life better

Pakiusap namin sa mga mister

abroad ang unang maiisip na solusyon ng halos lahat na nandito na sa abroad. Kahit alam namin na buhay ang nakataya,sinikap pa rin naming makalabas for so many reasons.

Binalewala na namin ang sarili namin, our first priority ay ang family. Minsan kahit malas ang buhay dito, tinitiis na lang para may perang mapadala sa Pilipinas. Para naman sa katulad ko na may mga asawang naiwan, sana isipin n’yo rin na nagtitiis kami para sa ikabubuti ng ating pamilya. Pero ano ang nagiging kapalit noon?
Habang kami ay nagsisikap dito, kayong mga asawang lalaki ay nagpapasarap ng buhay, nambabae at halos ubusin na ang perang ipinapadala sa walang kuwentang bisyo. Sana mahiya naman kayo. Kmi na nga ang tumatayong padre-de-familia ‘yon pa ba ang isusukli ninyo?
All we are asking from you is to be a good husband. Is that too much to ask? Sana maawa naman kayo sa amin.
– Ivy
All we are asking from you is to be a good husband. Is that too much to ask? Sana maawa naman kayo sa amin. Alam n’yo ba na 24/7 ang trabaho namin dito? Kahit ‘di na namin kaya, kinakaya at tinitiis pa rin naming…at alam nyo ba kung bakit? because of you!
Kayo ang insperasyon namin kaya kahit anong hirap ay makaya namin dito. Iniisip kasi namin na we have to do this, or that para may maipadala na naman kami sa end of the month. Gusto kasi namin na kahit mamatay-matay na kami sa hirap dito basta mabigyan namin kayo ng magandang buhay.
So sinulat ko ito in behalf ng mga asawang nandito sa abroad na nagpapaka-martir dahil sa pamilya. Ika nga, everything we do, we do it for you… so please help us.

Josie Esto – Pinay UN volunteer killed in Taliban attack

By Rodney J. Jaleco, ABS-CBN North America News Bureau

WASHINGTON D.C. – A Filipino election volunteer was among five United Nations personnel killed in Wednesday’s terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan, the Philippine Mission to the United Nations said.
Philippine Permanent Representative to the United Nations Hilario Davide identified the slain Filipina as Josie Esto, 40, an Electoral Outreach and Training Coordinator under the UN Volunteers Program.
Esto was killed when Taliban gunmen stormed the Bekhtar Guest House in Kabul’s Shar-e-Now District being used by UN and other international workers.
The dawn attack, which left four other UN staff members dead, was later claimed by the Taliban.
Davide said Esto was a former school teacher who also worked as an electoral officer and civic education officer in the Philippines before serving as a UN volunteer in Liberia, Timor-Leste and Nepal.
She was married with two children aged 14 and 11.
Esto is the 4th Filipino UN staff member to die in terrorist attacks.
In 2003, Ranillo Buenaventura, a staff member of the UN Office of the Humanitarian Coordinator for Iraq, was killed in the suicide car bombing of the UN headquarters in Baghdad.
Last year, Gene Luna, a staff member of the World Food Program, was among the fatalities in the terrorist bombing of UN offices in Algiers, Algeria.
Perseveranda So, a staff member of the United Nations Children’s Fund, died in a suicide bomb attack on a hotel housing international workers in Peshawar, Pakistan.
Esto’s death came five years after Angelito Nayan, who is now posted with the Philippine Embassy in Washington D.C., was kidnapped in Kabul while working as a UN volunteer assisting the 2004 Afghan elections.
Nayan was held for three weeks by the Taliban before he was released.
Davide said Esto had been in Afghanistan for just over a year and was among several UN volunteers working with the United Nations Development Program/Enhancing Legal and Electoral Capacity for Tomorrow (UNDP-ELECT) Project, which is the primary vehicle through which the international community supports elections in Afghanistan.
He explained that the UNDP-ELECT works closely with electoral bodies such as the Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan and provides project and program design and management, mobilization of donor funding, activity coordination, reporting and the channelling of funds for electoral support.
