The family of an Overseas Filipino Worker is asking for help because he didn’t come home for more than 20 years already.

Rizel went to the TV program “RaffyTulfo in Action” to ask for help in finding her OFW Father Rizal Anico who failed to return to the Philippines for 22 years. Additionally, his family in the Philippines are the ones sending money for him in Kuwait, a totally reverse situation.

According to Rizel, she was still 5 years old when her father left them to work abroad. Because they really want their father to return to the Philippines, they send him mother for his ticket for a couple of times already to no avail.

At first, her sisters in Canada sent his father PhP100,000 so he can return to the Philippines and be with their mother again. His father, on the other hand, said that everything is all set for his return but he stopped communicating to them after receiving the money.

Rizal also claims that he is currently living on the streets and slowly losing his sight, as he does not have a working visa in Kuwait.

Because they cannot communicate well, RaffyTulfo decided to help in the deportation of Rizal since he is already undocumented in Kuwait.
