When Filipinos celebrate Independence Day, images of their national heroes' spring up. But what many overlook is that a 'hero' is simply a person who works hard, sets and achieves goals and is determined to do what is right, no matter at what cost. Heroes are people that can change the world and they are all around us.
Today, the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) are being called the modern-day heroes of the Philippines because of their significant contributions to the nation. The remittances that they send back home through formal channels have been strengthening the economy and providing sustainable livelihood to their families. 
Exhibiting the trait of perseverance and hardwork has also made OFWs the most sought-after community worldwide. In the UAE, they have grown from less than a thousand immigrants to the second largest immigrant diaspora in just a few years.
Encouraging this hardworking community in transferring money conveniently, instantly, and securely is UAE Exchange, a renowned financial services brand in the United Arab Emirates.
OFWs can now pay for their Social Security System (SSS), PAGIBIG, PhilHealth at any of the UAE Exchange branch along with other Ventaja services. 
The online money transfer service is also gaining traction as it enables customers to send money hassle-free anywhere anytime, even while on the move. The self-serve kiosks at UAE Exchange branches have further facilitated customers with a wide range of bill payment solutions and round-the-clock money transfers. 
UAE Exchange understands the hardships the OFWs undergo and explores ways to serve them better and bring a smile on the faces of these modern heroes. One of them is through the 'Summer Promotion' campaign. The cash prizes won in the campaign has helped many Filipinos achieve their dreams and help their families back home.  
UAE Exchange salutes the modern-day heroes of The Philippines and wishes them a very Happy Independence Day.
