FIVE overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) were given certificates of recognition yesterday as nominees in the OFW awards for maintaining strong family relations and keeping family values despite being away from home.

The awards were given to land-based and sea-based OFWs.

For the sea-based awards, the nominees for the Model OFW Family of the Year Award (Mofya) were the families of Henry Joseph Rabillas of Kimba, Talisay City; Venancio Rolloque of Lawaan, Talisay City; and Capt. Silvano Tabigue of Mabini, Bohol.

For the land-based awards, the nominees were the families of Eva Maglahus of Poro, Camotes, Cebu; and Engr. Herculano Omambac Jr., of Naga City.

The certificates were given by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) 7 Director Wilfredo Misterio and Department of Labor and Employment (Dole) 7 Director Ma. Gloria Tango.

Misterio said yesterday's recognition at the Harolds Business Hotel was the 8th since Mofya was launched in 2005.

Mofya is aimed at recognizing the success of OFWs and their families throughout the country.

Misterio said there will be two regional winners from each region, one from the land-based and one from the sea-based.

The national awarding will be held in Manila in December.

"It is my pride to announce that Region 7 bagged the coveted Mofya 2011 national awards in the sea-based and land-based sectors, the first time in history since the search was launched in 2005," Misterio said.

She identified last year's Mofya winners as Dr. Carlito Astillero from Labangon, Cebu City, and chief engineer Candido Caminero from Argao, Cebu.

Astillero and Caminero received P600,000.00 cash each.

Misterio said that by recognizing the best practices of families of OFWs, other OFW families will be inspired.

"May the success stories of our model OFW families continue to inspire not only the families of OFWs but all Filipino families as well," Misterio said.

Genara Beltran Licardo Rolloque, wife of nominee Venancio Rolloque, told Sun.Star Cebu the nominees are evaluated according to their ability to keep Filipino family values intact and educate their children.

The wife of nominee Tabigue, Ester Tabigue, is the incumbent mayor of Mabini, Bohol.
