Working abroad is not easy. Our beloved OFWs endure a lot of struggles mentally, physically, emotionally and even financially. If you have a family member or a relative who work abroad, we can’t give anything to ease their situation aside from appreciating and thanking them for their sacrifice.
But recently, a nurse working in Canada shared a hurtful message from a family member from the Philippines. What made it worst is, her brother called her “selfish” for not sending them money to pay for a car.
The said story was shared on the Facebook page PESO SENSE by a nurse working in Canada who said that her older brother described her as “selfish” in a hurtful message just because she did not give him the money to pay for a car their family was planning to buy.
According to her, her excessively demanding brother wanted her to send P150,000 as a downpayment for the car. However, she declined his request because she had her own family’s expenses to tend to.
As a matter of fact, the nurse already spent hundreds of thousands of pesos helping her siblings including P200,000 to help out her younger brother’s business and another P55,000 to build a small grocery store.
In addition, she also pays for the tuition of her older brother’s child amounting to P30,000 and lets them live in the house owned by her older sister but built on her land.
“I am the one who sends one of my older brother’s children to a private school with a P30,000 tuition fee…they live in Las Piñas in a house owned by my older sister but built on land I own,…then after all that I still get called selfish.”
The nurse expressed her disappointment and pain knowing that her brother is living a comfortable life because of her hard work in Canada.
