Willie Revillame played "angel" in Dubai
The success of the recent staging of the ABS-CBN noontime show Wowowee in Dubai was made more meaningful when host Willie Revillame played “angel” to 32 of the 60-plus OFWs under the custody of the POLO-OWWA Dubai.
According to Funfare’s DPA in Dubai, Willie shelled out P450,000 from his own wallet for the plane tickets of 32 of the OFWs who sought the help of the Philippine Consulate there after they were hurt, abandoned or maltreated by their employers. Some of them were pregnant and some were infants. Kind-hearted individuals came to the rescue of the first batch of OFWs who, hopefully, should have been reunited with their families back home.
“During a break,” the Funfare DPA added, “Willie and ABS-CBN lady boss Charo Santos-Concio visited the Philippine Consulate and learned about the plight of the OFWs. Without any second thought, Willie right there and then shouldered the plane fare of the remaining 32 OFWs. It was Willie’s advance Valentine gift to them.”
Ching Ardivilla of POLO-OWWA Dubai couldn’t thank Willie enough.
Wouldn’t it be nice if Willie invited the 60-plus OFWs as contestants on Wowowee’s Bigat-10, Hep-Hep Hooray or Oo o Hindi segment?
