History and Company Profile

According to statistics of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, there are now more than 10 million Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in various parts of the world. They are considered in the Philippines as the”Bagong Bayani” or the New Heroes of the Republic because of their substantial contribution to the economy due to their annual dollar remittances to the Philippines that average $22 billion annually. Each of the 10 million OFWs has at least 3 dependents in the Philippines comprising of their parents, spouses, and children.

The OFW Family Club is a non-profit, non-government, private foundation that was organized by the family of former Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates and Chairman of the NLRC, and now Representative of our OFWs and families in Congress under the OFW Family Party List, Roy V. Señeres Sr., to cater to the needs of OFWs and their family in the Philippines. Ambassador Roy V. Señeres Sr. is acknowledged by the 10 million strong OFWs as their hero and protector when, through dogged determination, diplomatic expertise and skills, he saved Sarah Balabagan from being executed by a firing squad in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Aside from Sarah Balabagan, Ambassador Roy V. Señeres Sr. (also known as “Amba”), has also saved a roster of distressed OFWs including John Aquino whom he saved from execution in Ajman, U.A.E. Acknowledging Ambassador Señeres’ feat, the London-based World Who’s Who in International Affairs, cited him in 1998 as “a principal figure and leading diplomat in the field of international relations.” The foundation was organized to fundamentally come to the succor of the thousands of helpless OFWs whose pleas for assistance from their own Embassies and other government entities in the Philippines are ignored or unheeded, or cavalierly treated.
