Makati gov’t pays tribute to Filipina OFW

/ 09:25 AM August 14, 2011

MANILA, Philippines—The Makati City government has paid tribute to a 31-year-old overseas Filipino worker who died recently while protecting her six-year-old ward in Hong Kong.

Mayor Jejomar Erwin Binay gave P20,000 as financial assistance to the family of Juanita Limbago, of West Rembo, Makati City.

Binay also presented to Limbago’s husband, Edwin, and their eight-year old son, Marc Aldwin, a city council resolution extending condolences to the bereaved family and paying tribute to Limbago for her heroic act.


“She exemplified selfless dedication to duty and genuine compassion, traits that are worthy of emulation by all Filipinos,” Binay said.

Limbago, a domestic helper in Hong Kong, died last June 10 after protecting her ward from being hit by a bus. Tina G. Santos
