Cecilio Kawayan | Huwarang OFW 2017 Individual Nominee

After serving in the Armed Forces of the Philippines, Cecilio “Kawi” Kawayan worked as an OFW to better provide for the growing needs of his family.

He went to Qatar where he worked as a security officer in a private company.

Kawi witnessed the abuse, exploitation, and suffering of his fellow countrymen in the hands of their employers. He felt burdened to help these distressed workers escape from their abusive employers and brought them to the Philippine Consular office or the Labor office for assistance.

Today, Kawi still continues to provide help distressed Filipinos through counseling and partnering with Qatar’s Ministry of Labor and the Philippine Embassy.
