An Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW) who was supposed to return to the Philippines passed away while inside the aircraft.
OFW Leonida Morales asked the help of TV and radio personality Raffy Tulfo to return to the country because of a serious disease. According to the statement of her family, Leonida always wanted to return home due to her illness.
In her last interview with Raffy Tulfo, the OFW pleaded to return home as soon as possible. She also needs to undergo an operation but couldn’t do so because of the high hospital fees which need to be paid in Saudi Arabia.
The program, Raffy Tulfo in Action, immediately responded to Leonida and provided her with everything she needs to return to her family in the Philippines. Unfortunately, she died while on her way home.
According to the sibling of Leonida, they are waiting for the call of OWWA on that day because the OFW said that she will be arriving. However, they were very shocked when they heard the news that Leonida already passed away while inside the airplane.
Leonida was described by her family as someone selfless and hard-working. She was working as an Overseas worker for about 30 years and ever since the OFW never failed to help her family and relatives who are in need.
Even Raffy Tulfo couldn’t help but shed tears upon knowing what happened to Leonida.
